Starting/Running the motor during winter when not being used

Recommended Posts

Just fly it, winter flying is just as fun, at least when there is soft snow to play with. But no, there is no benefit of just running the engine. But keep it in good condition, do the maintenance.

If you are sure not to fly during the winter, remove the fuel or add fuel stabilizer to it (just fly it up, not worth it) and clean the carburetor. Then check it one extra time before next flight and just add new fuel. You don't want old fuel to gum up your carburetor.
