30 seconds isn't unreasonable or unusual. You have to consider the simplicity of these little engines. They have no computer controlled ignition or carburation, no heat riser valves, no way for them to reach optimum operatating temperature except through combustion. When the cylinder, piston, rings and the rest of the internal parts reach operating temperature the engine will naturally perform better than when cold.
30 seconds of warm up time is normal. Give her a little time and she'll perform for you.
