    I'd suggest you edit the thread title to make it more descriptive by including "Vampire". Can't hurt.

    Jeff, the hijacking comments were meant to keep the thread from devolving into a discussion/argument regarding brands etc. As I said in my own post, just select a lighter engine to avoid add'l nose...

    Thanks Ron. I will make sure I have lotsa flap. Will shoot for close to 90 degrees and back off if I don't need it. Maybe a speed brake instead of crow.

    Duralite Black Friday?

    I could swear I saw a Black Friday ad with a code to use at checkout, but now I can't find it. Anyone else see that and have a link for me?

    Thanks

    Congrats Bruce! 10 years on and you ARE still making the kits :-)
    I can't think of higher praise than that!

    Hard to say from here, but it did indeed look like a series of 'hot starts' which got slowly better over time. Especially later in the vid I thought I heard him cutting the fuel off momentarily to...

    Yes. My dad hadn't been to the field or touched his batts in several days when he found one warming up on the bench. It didn't catch fire, but even the fact that it warmed up was enough to change the...

    thanks Dave. I don't want a sensor that makes guesstimates from the ECU based upon pump voltage, I'd rather have a genuine fuel flow measurement. It's been done elsewhere, just not by Futaba....
