    Thanks Tom , I'll look for the link on Monday.

    I purchased this SMOKE pump recently to use in my 540 edge but have changed my mind. do you think that I can use this for a FUEL pump??

    I don't plan on using the automatic starter .I hope that I won't have any problems starting the 135 manually.

    For some reason, Rcuniverse won't send me an automatic notification email when you have replied to these messages!? If it's ok or easier my email is

    Thank you.

    I can hardly wait to get that kolm 135 and begin installing it in the crossfire.
    I was planning on making my engine cowel open and assesible on both left and right sides as you did with your spit il150 combo.
    did you fly with these to fly with these two "doors"open to see how COOL the engine temp Could be and then aim to try and "keep" this temp with doors finally closed- to check cooling baffles in flight??

    So... On monday You will get a Mail with a Link. There you can Watch or download the pics.

    Fuel Pump we use Emcotec. Called fuel RX.

    Servos :
    We use Servos about 10-15 kg. It's Not Important to have super Strong or super quick one.... Its a old Warbird with small Rudders...

    Ignition Box is very useful when u Have a starter! Think about the Problem how to kill the battery from Controller when Model is Switched Off.

    Recomanden is Sierra Giant , Right?
    I had One from a German Producer. Air or electric is your Choice. My wingmen from Formation use the "electron". Also Works good !

    With il135 You will not Need to das extra wheigt.

    Do you recommend the same retracts that are recommended for the spit and available through CARF?
    Air or electric? Which do you recommend. I would probably want the ones that are the easiest to install. A perfect fit :-))
    What about the cog ? With the steering tail wheel, and the kolm135, will I need to add weight anywhere do you think?

    Wow ! Awesome. THANK YOU! Yes please add me to drop box. How do I view all your pictures?

    I am calling götz today and ordering the spit kit- I will order the steering rail wheel from him also. Please send me a link for the fuel pump. I want to purchase the correct one. I'm not sure what servos to order- can you recommend?

    I am definitely wanting to clip wings - not sure exactly where or how- I'll have to wait and see.

    Lastly , do you think I will need the ignition box ? To make install easier.
    Basically I WANT everything that you RECOMMEND . Please
    THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR HELP- I am so excited to become a member of the brotherhood and especially to be a kolm pilot!!

    No problem!

    So, Temp telemetry is recomanded. so you are able to check if your cooling is working! RMP is not so important. we know how much RPM you may have with the right propeller.

    i cen send you pictures... but better will be if i add you to my dropbox. you are not the first who ask me about this :-)

    steering tail wheel... for sure! you need for ground handling!
    Kolm installation kit: for sure! will help you a lot ... all parts included for engine installation.
    Fuel Pump: i did with, and without. better to have one i think.. carb handling is gettin better

    Thanks tom.
    Yes I'm about to order the spitfire from Götz in USA. I am VERY concerned with cooling and mounting kolm135. Could you PLEASE send me all pictures that you have regarding this. [email protected]

    Also do you recommend steering tail wheel?
    Will I need fuel pump(I have talked to tom Bogner and he uses fuel pump.
    I will need motor mounting template from kolm for spitfire- does this ensure success with cooling problem? Thank you so very much for your time.
    I want to also use telemetry for temp and rpms yes or no ?

    Sorry, i have never seen this messages bevor :-) ...this forum is new for me.

    So, easier to build is the spitfire. a litte easier to fly (land) is the mustang.

    engine install in both models same ... maye a little bit easier in mustang because of the long cowling. so... you should build the model your prefer. i´m sure you are in both sucessful!

    the clipped Spitfire is from my friend Tom Bogner. he clipped it himselfe, its no problem if you want to do this. you can see, its a perfect kombination Spitfire/il 135.

    feel free to ask!
