    Hi Hum

    The impromptu display at enniskiillen yesterday looked great with the smoke (as wellas the takeoff!!!).

    Nevergiveup took some pics, so if he or i can work out to upload them, will stick them up.

    Willo

    Hum, how does the smoke system work and what kit is required? did you make it or buy off the shelf?
    the atc lads at eiwf comment that the bd5s are difficult to see in circuit and even harder for other traffic to spot. i have thought blips of smoke may be the answer if it can be built in a small space and not weigh too much.

    if i do i will learn morse and then be able to send rude messages if anyone cuts me off, but lets not start forumites off writing dots and dashes in their posts!!!!

    Smoking

    by hum » Fri Jan 09, 2009 9:26 am

    Not a lot involved really, you basically squirt a suitable fluid into the back of the exhaust. I used an OTS kit from these guys:

    http://www.smokingairplanes.com/

    Call me if you want to chat about it, if you send me an email hum at iolfree.ie I can let you have details, photos etc I sent to saac for the mod approval.

    Might be easier to buy glasses for the ATC guys than install in a BD5 :lol: :lol:
