    RE: Afterburner effect!

    I can't wait to test mine - but today, we have had fog all day long, and now it's snowing....
    Fortunately, the Christmas holiday is coming up, and if we're lucky, we will have some nice
    days between Christmas eve and New Year where we can fly!

    Nicolas - any pictures or video?

    RE: Afterburner effect!

    Einavannet is a great place to fly - unlimited field, unlimited runway and a great place.
    We may be getting a bit close to Christmas, but if there are plans for flying during the
    weekend, it sounds really tempting!
    I flew my F-15 there last year in -18 C, so if this cold that I have picked up would just let
    go, I'll try to be there!

    RE: Afterburner effect!

    Sorry you were lost in the fog this weekend. Eina vannet is surely a great place to fly. For me it's the lake MjΓΈsa that counts. We have 25 cm ice mesaured on sunday an the cold weather makes it grow pretty fast. We will be in business from the comming weekend beeing able to drive to the depot. No snow makes it one of the largest airports in Norway at the time!
    You are welcome to Lillehammer any time.

    RE: Afterburner effect!

    Looks like a P-40 Warhawk to me..

    and yes, I would love to fly on MjΓΈsa one of these days - I have been to Lillehammer many, many times and have often thought
    of flying on the ice there, especially when there is no snow, just the clean ice!! Are you flying during the Christmas days too?

    I used to work with some guys from Lillehammer - and one from Asker!!

    Ps: I'm the guy on the left - and NO, I don't have the hair anymore...

    RE: Afterburner effect!

    Hei Tor.
    I don't recognize the other men on that picture but when you say it I can se it is you in earlier days.
    We will do a bit of work there on saturday and since we don't have any snow to bother with, I will have time to get the Harpoon in the air again. I have already put my sparks in..
    If the temp is above -10 there will be people flying there every day from now on i guess.

    But since this is the AFTERBURNER thread I think we all are curious on how this will work in the air! Very clever to use water instead of another flamable fluid.

    I'm hoping to have some time on Saturday, but I guess you will be flying during the Christmas days

    I must admit i didn't recognize him but don't tell anyone. At least he is not a famous modeller.
    I hope to spend as much time on the ice as possible the next coming days. I will update the forum on lillehammer-mfk.org accordingly.

    RE: Afterburner effect!

    Unfortunately, we still have invertion and a low fog over the entire southern part of Norway -
    the main airport has even been closed, and Christmas travellers are getting desperate, just
    like me!!

    RE: Afterburner effect!

    Finally we had a nice winter day and a chance to test the afterburner effect in the air!
    Since we had a temp that was slightly under freeezing, I dropped the water and used
    car windshield washer fluid, which will not freeze. I found out that this fluid does not
    reflect the light as well, and vaporizes much faster because of its content of alcohol.

    Also, I found out that I will need a stop valve, since the fluid was siphoning out after
    I primed the pump. This only gave me 2-3 attempts to test the effect before my 1L
    tanks were empty. Unfortunately, the camera man missed the first low pass/pull up,
    and by the time I made another, the tanks were dry. You can clearly see the improved
    effect in the take-off, and the effect also makes the lights more "blurry" and real in a
    few of the other pull-ups and loops. The second attempt was not filmed, I used water
    which looked better in the takeoff and the first flyby, but again, the tanks were empty
    after a couple of minutes.
    I am happy for now, and will go on to check a couple of options to improve the effect
    and the durability even more.

    There is a very short and blurry clip on Youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IwKYyGicqns
    and a better video (54MB) at http://www.av-art.no/filer/modellfly...urnertest2.wmv

    It's great to be flying again!! Happy New Year!

    Tor

    the takeoff looks good amigo. assuming you can turn the lights on and off, a low flyby pitch away with lights on and water streaming would look pretty cool!!

    congrats
