The text on the top half of each of your web pages is very hard to read.

Keep up the good work. Super product!
Thanks!! I will change that. I need to edit the pages anyway to update stuff.

Great idea!!! I may do that.

Can't wait to see how visible it is in the air. Cool.

Take care,

It is a water/glycerin based warmer. The smell is not too bad at all, and you may be able to scent it even. It disipates quite quickly.

Great work as usual Andrew and if you need a guinea pig let me know.

Two ports should be no problem. It is still a work in progress. I will let you know if I need any testing done.

Thanks for prompt reply Andrew -- think I have the installation in my Hurricane figured out, can even get rid of 4 oz of nose weight so net increase is only 4-5 oz!

What would you suggest as minimum size remote 3 cell LiPo for this module rather than tap into flight pack?

Can't make that installation link that you sent work but did see the one for the Saratoga.

3S to 4S are both good. I would say go for the tap into the 4S. there is a little increase in volume from 3S to 4S, but not above as the system is voltage regulated. You will notice basically no flight time difference.

Ditto what OP said! I have an Sbach that this would be great in.


Keep the experimenting up Edison!

Andrew, another great solution for us electric Pilots. I have been experimenting with smoke for years. The thing that SHOCKED me first was how alot of thick smoke I could create on the ground ... dispensed so much in the air ! Im keen to see this in action but I think its going to need more... no reason you could not put two in series however !

That is my fear as well. The problem is it may be one of those exponential things. More smoke, more weight, more power draw, the more power needed, the more weight added, till it is too heavy to haul. I will keep working on it though.

Wow!!! How big is that plane. It looks SMALL!

I was worried about the gun sounds on the mini. It does draw the overall volume down some, so I was worreid it may not be loud enough even with the 3 mini speakers, but it looks like it does pretty well.

I will have your light kit done and shipped on Monday.
