G’day Oli,

What are your thoughts on metal (copper) fuel lines? Would they help alleviate some of the problems associated with Tyson etc fuel lines?

This is what I have done with the Crusader. The principles of convection cooling are used to their full extent on this plane, along with a full bypass system.
As you said, it is a very cool airplane. You can put your hand on the fuselage back during static engine tests. It stays cool!
