Great video's I was wondering which flybarless system Tim uses
On that heli I'm using V-bar on 4.0
I have one question, on the bench talk vid it's said that as the fuel level decreases, the mixture leans out, but will that happen using a header tank?
A header tank will decrease this effect, but not eliminate it completely.
I had always herd that if you run your engine lean even for a few sec. Thats it, and you have started some process of premature engine failure?
A few seconds, just over the edge of "lean," No, it will not harm a thing. Flying around lean, long enough to build up heat due to lack of lubrication, then yes.
