Hi Guys,

We have a huge burner in a jet already. AND... once the smoke oil burns, it's not going to turn back into a liquid if cooled. SO... why not do this....


1) Use a regular electric smoke pump.
2) Use a a few wraps of stainless tube around the outside of the nozzle of the turbine for heat.
3) Use Teflon tubing feeding in and out of the stainless tube.
4) Use a check valve on the feed side so once the oil is pumped in... the heat, and pressure feeds the smoke system.


Basically... think about a drip coffee pot. You have a liquid tank, that feeds a coil with a check valve. A little liquid gets into the hot coil, and it gets boiled. The expanding fluid, is forced out the hoses to the coffee filter. In our case... it would just be out the wing tips.

It would take a little experimenting... but all the parts are cheap. And... as above... the electricity needed to produce good smoke will be hard to supply, and the burners would be too heavy.

So... don't re-invent the system, by adding a lot of weight. Just turn it into a plumbing project with materials that can take the heat.

Just my 2 cents.

I like the idea, although I'm afraid that the mist will condense in the travel tubes to the wing tips. For an avarage model they need to be at least 80cm long, transportation of smoke/mist through such a long tube probably isn't going to work. Maybe if the tubes are very wide and heated...... maybe worth a try.....

AND... once the smoke oil burns, it's not going to turn back into a liquid if cooled
Not sure what you mean, smoke is not burned oil, it's just vapourised and can return into liquid state again.

Rgds,
Gerald

The smoke cannot return to liquid. It is not just vapor, which you can't see. The oil has to reach a temp that is between vapor and combustion, or above minus O2 to produce smoke.

Always wanted to try one but 1200 euros was the deal breaker.

Huh! RCJI is published only in English so far as I am aware. The report on Jepower 2011 has a short piece on page 39. If you maen the Jetpower magazine, this is also published in English. (Unless it was an ad?)

Right, RCJI is in english. The subject companys web site is in German. If you can't read the web site German, you can't know what the specifications of their system is, let alone the price. The photos are interesting, the text foreign.
