Sullivan provides recommended set up data for Futaba owners and advises other radio (JR) users their numbers may need to be reversed.
Anybody out there with experience setting up the Sullivan S753 with a JR9503 who is willing to provide a step by step tutorial?
I'm using a 2S 7.4V Lipo to power the pump. I plan to use the Gear switch to activate a mix for the smoke at throttle settings above 25% above idle.
System is installed in a 30% Pilot R/C Sbach 342 powered by a DA60.
Looking for assistance before actually testing it out.
I had the Sullivan Skywriter Smoke System in a Dynaflite PT19, with a Zenoah G38, and a GP Patty Wagstaff Extra with a ZDZ 50. I have a JR XP9303. I had the Smoke Pump connected to the Gear channel and then activated it with one of the Levers on the shoulder of the Tx. I then mixed the Gear channel with Throttle, but I do not remember the percentages. It depends upon where the muffler fitting is in relation to the Exhaust Port of the engine when determining what the pump settings should be for Idle and Full Throttle. I had to install some one way valves to keep the system Primed.
I would open the metal housing for the pump and check the wires going to the motor and the circuitry. I had the pump fail one time and discovered that a Capacitor and one motor wire had bad solder joints and were detached. I resoldered them and added some RTV to prevent vibration from breaking the joints again.
