    49dimes Damn I'm hungry

    How did you set up your radio to start the engines? Two separate channels or logic switch?
    That is way cool right there :attaboy:. I have not read through the entire thread yet.

    They are just on switches. Simple on/off activation. The relays allow it to go for about 5 seconds and then shuts off.

    Regarding the cooling for the rear engine. I ended up using some flexible foam to create a tunnel from the intake at the scoop on top of the fuselage that empties directly onto the rear engine. I hope you can see what I mean with these pictures. The exit will be around the rear spinner just like the full-scale plane. Unfortunately, I also had to make a cut out in the cowl for the engine on this plane. I puzzled over how to get it to fit without cutting up the cowl and just could not find a way. I did the least amount of cutting by putting it at a 45 degree angle like you see. If I end up hating it I can always rotate it back to inverted, but when I did that before the cuts to the cowl were pretty significant due to the upslope of the cowl in the rear.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    I am actually more worried about the cooling for the front engine. I can only baffle one side of the intake on the cowl. I did my best to make it to verterra directly onto the cylinder. I will end up opening up the cowl on the bottom around the nose gear to promote more airflow.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
