    ARF with Smoke System Suggestions

    Looking to get into an ARF that will allow me to have a smoke system.


    I know it would make sense just to go with a 50cc gas but that is out of my budget.

    I was hoping to learn of others who have added smoke to their smaller sized crafts, I.e. .90 - 1.20 size.

    Looking for sugguestions or links to threads where others have done such, etc.

    I have the GP Waco with a DLE 30 on it and a smoke system. It's fantastic!

    RE: ARF with Smoke System Suggestions

    There happens to be a member here that posted a wonderful write-up about smoke systems in his younger more carefree days...

    See: Got Smoke? - Click me -

    You'll note that you can pretty much do this with any engine, if you can keep the heat on.

    Heh, to my daughter, dinosaurs ruled the earth prior to 2000.

    I just finished putting the smoke system in my Great Planes Super Stearman. A lot of room to put a tank and smoke pump in it.
