Hi guys, kindly request your input regarding R44 Raven2 difficult to start,
We have just received used R44 Raven2 from US for the flying school here in Indonesia.
Since we received it in Subang Malaysia, this helicopter having problem with engine starting.
We have tried so many method, including priming for 30seconds to cool the fuel ect, but no help.
Our average temp is 30C.
Is there may be the plugs is the culprit being in hot climate?
Your input is much appreciated.

Did it solve the problem? I would check the timing of the magnetos.
