Hi and welcome to JustAnswer,

Thank you for the question and your patience. Should you still need assistance for information purposes only...

Initially, bear with us; re-confirm and post back with the complete model number of the Roketa; carb or fuel injected?

Still, it would appear to be a fuel delivery issue. Proposed preliminary tries (if have not been done):

  • • replace tank contents with sufficient fresh fuel;
  • • determine if fuel reaches spark plug after "...a few seconds a die..."
  • • check fuel flow from petcock/fuel cut-off valve, fuel filter or fuel pump which ever is in use depending on the model;
  • • verify carb bowl contents and/or fuel pump output pressure whichever is applicable.
