    Tygon and a B&B clunk...

    Tygon is replaced once a year....



    I have seen someone get a dead stick.... on an upline... seems the clunk fell to the front of the tank on a downline... and stayed there.





    our downlines will never be long enough to run out of fuel

    For me it never happened during a sequence downline, but on an extended descent from a higher altitude for landing. Timer went off while at the top of a sequence, etc.



    Of course, what do I know....I'm only a 15cc NOOB :upset:

    great news!!!

    flew her three times today and problem is solved!! thanks Earle!!! worked out great!!!

    did the iMac sequence 3 times, and not once did it hiccup!!!

    ,my advice from now on, for everyone, do not set up a PSP tank with the brass tube. use a Viton tube from the clunk to the PSP cap.

    hello Bobby,

     

    the fuel tubing is from McMaster Carr.  there is a huge list, so when i get home from work, i will find you the part number.  the felt clunk has worked great.  this past weekend and week before, while i was practicing, my DA 170 has not had a single hiccup during practice and the competition.  the Felt clunk solved the problem.  the clunk, i obtained from Taildragger RC website.

     

    once i get home, i will also get you that part number and the link to the websites.
