    Sorry for no updates! Been waiting for my exhaust for a while now. Still hasn’t been shipped from CZ yet. With winter being set in I’m in no rush. It’s 19F right now. I’m dabbling with CAD to see if I can attempt to make 3DP baffles for this plane. I think it’s more work than it’s worth... but hey gotta try to teach myself something new... or at least attempt to!

    Hi Nick have a question. This concerns the ignition on the GP engine. The ignition module has a lead that is tack feed from the module. Do you know how it works or do you know how to get a signal from it or what to buy to read it.

    Are you referring to the tachometer lead? You would have to buy the digital tach from GP. I don't think you can use a DLE tach.

    Expanding my CAD skills and teaching myself how to intersect and blend two different objects on different angles is like working in an alternate reality for me. After about ten thousand eureka moments later I have drafted and designed a baffle for the right/rear cylinder.

    Talk about time consuming.... just use the foam fellas... hopefully it turns out! Printing now.

    1.6mm is too thick, probably thin it up in my next revision. 5hrs is way too long to wait for this.

    BTW still no exhaust, it’s almost been two months. I’ll need to rattle JMB’s cage and see what’s going on.

    So close. About 2/3 the way through the print...the power went out. Restart failed. Here’s what it looks like now, reprinting to see what needs to change.

    Nicely done looks really good. That took some time and work to get it to look that professional.

    Thanks! It's very rewarding to design and 3DPrint things like this. hopefully I can bring it to fruition

    Milan at JMB got back to me and said he's super sorry - covid caused some unplanned set backs and with orders piling up he's scrambling to get it all finished. He said my exhaust is complete and will be in the mail tomorrow hopefully :) What a wonderful person to do business with, kind, prompt to reply, and sincere. I cannot wait to get it!

    Oh boy! Eight hours of printing and I have a set of baffles custom designed by me that weigh 1.5oz combined. After a few trials I was able to create something that may actually work. I am a little concerned about the PLA plastic getting too close to the cooling fins.

    here is a bunch of photos:

    They look prefect! Should be a cool running motor now. Do you have telemetry to see how much difference they make?
