Festo quick fittings

Be careful with festo quick fittings in the suction side of you fuel system, especially between your last tank / uat and the pump.

They can, and they will leak.

I'm sure they could build in some extra armor.
Something like a layer of balsa between the glass lay up, soaked with a pound and a half of epoxy.
Oh wait, that sounds familiar 😉

Seams

Make sure you "deseam" the front and back of the wing where it meets the fuselage.
On my UF and Joker that made a difference when it comes to the fit of the wing in the fuselage.

If the wing...

Hi Dave,

You have to be ahead of the plane.
The decision to do a go around has to be made before you even reach the threshold of the runway.

I have a VT80BL too...runs great!
Start it up, when it's at idle, blip the throttle and watch the screen : look at how long it takes to go back down from let's say 60.000 rpm to a 42.000 rpm idle.

I'm not saying it can't be done.
A turbine is just different, certainly while landing.
The flying itself is mostly the same, just more power compared to an edf, so you do most of your flying...

The question is: what happens if you put a brass tube in there, along with a ferromagnetic injector needle?

Is it going to overheat the needle just like a gas torch can / would?

You guys are spoiled 😳

I've never even flown a jet off a paved runway.
The only paved runways i've flown off were when I was still pylon racing regularly...defunct cold war airstrips and such.
