I know your running motorcycle oil....You are running way to lean...trust me, PUT your high at 1 1/8.....On the RC230, when you get to 1 1/4, your lean....You should be at 1 3/8's on the low....If you were running AMSoil, this situation wouldn't be that lean....I'm going by your plug color, and you have a tail shake:)
You want a tan brown on the Ceramic...Don't worry about the color on the metal part, it will get kinda black while idling with my setup...Its the ceramic part that is important...White is ok, if tan is on the other side of the ceramic....Otherwise all white is not good, to lean....
We have the 230 running at 150 degs in 90 deg weather over here this past summer..., so i know 190 to 220 is hot for that engine...That engine has the best cooling system availible....
This is where your tail shake is coming from....
Get the heli in a hover, and start riching the lowend till your tail smooths out....You may have to add some throttle if you lose rpm...Clean your plug or replace it before you start all this:)
