I have never flown IC but watch all the hassle my fellow fliers have at the field, especially with twins, electric all the way for me

I love the video of the sound test, what occurs to me though it would be really cool if you could get some smoke emitting from the exhausts even if it was only on startup, would really cause some confusion in the crowds

Great work Dag, love it

I flew IC over a decade ago, and I will admit I do miss the smell. That's about it.

Same thought here, I wondered about a way to have 2 very short duration smoke bombs that would last around 2-3 seconds. I would flip the switch that would set off the sounds system while igniting 2 rocket engine igniters and get a bit of smoke that way. Or if I would have thought about it and allowed room and access, a small smoke generator like I have used in theatre.....

At the Arizona Electric Festival this weekend some of the guys from Hacker were playing with an electric smoke system for electric planes.

I believe this was a prototype but Hacker may be a good source of information for a solution.

Here are a few photos.

It smoked pretty good and could be turned on an off. I think it is some type of oil / heater setup.

Would be a great touch!

There is a special beauty in a wooden airframe!

I have a few last parts to prime, then I can start covering.
