Default 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!

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

See: [link=http://www.rcuniverse.com/magazine/article_display.cfm?article_id=455]Got Smoke? - Click me -[/link]

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.

2004 is a long lost age!

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.
