Thank you very much.

Hi Arthur,

How did the flight with the Chippy go?
Here is a link to a UK site that has check lists and lots of good info.

Hi Collin,

Thank you very much for your help. I've not flown my Chipmunck yet, yesterday I had a problem to run the OS FS 91, I think that the KwickFill is the problem, tomorrow I'll try again without it.

Thanks
Arthur

The link Crash gives in his post (#2) is a great reference and guide and a MUST before EVERY flying day.

One thing that I would add is flight control check before each flight. Gives you a chance to see if the surfaces are moving the direction you want them to...

Arthur,

I've heard guys gripe about them (Du-Bro and Great Planes) and it usually comes down to dirt getting into them and preventing the O-ring from properly seating and they leak. I installed one on my pattern ship and added the cover to it. It's been on there about six months now. No problems as of yet.

One of my students use's the quick fill and he had problems till I found out that he wasn't pulling it all the way out, then pushing it all the way back in. Also use the cover, it keeps crap out. I like the system and plan on using it. ( Du Bro ) ENJOY !!! RED

My KwickFill worked very well this weekend, the engine was with a bad carburization.

Thank you very much
