and one of the guts, will the servo on the ducting above engine intake affect rpm sensing? rpm reads 2000 with radio on, 0 radio off

Nice F-18...

Servo located in-line with RPM sensor will affect the rpm reading if the range is near enough. I noticed that you have the solenoid valve above the engine ducting as well....this is a magnetic device and should be well away from the RPM sensor.

Sent you an email...

BTW, I have flown both SM F-18C and F-18E with the J1300Rs and they are real performers. Good luck.

hey Blackcat,

Sorry I never responded. I didn't notice your question in the 3rd post... As kraivuth said, it could be an issue. Having a servo (or the solenoid valve) in the vicinity of the sensor could cause trouble since the magnet in the compressor nut really isn't all that strong. You could be receiving a great deal of background noise relative to the feild strength its trying to read.

Nice plane! Did you paint it yourself?
