Default Final Ground Test of the Spray Boom

Here are a couple shots of the final ground test of the spray boom.
It is in it's flight configuration with 60 feet of supply hose and a new spray nozzle that gives me a good conical spray pattern.

As you can see in the photos I have good usable spray 10 feet out past the nozzle which means I don't have to get that close to the exterior walls to apply the cleaning solution.
I have 2.5 feet of spray boom past the rotor tip so I should be able to fly a comfortable distance of about 10 feet from the exterior wall from the rotor disk and still get the job done.

So operational checks are complete, leak check complete, the only thing left is take it out for a flight and do some cleaning.
That will take place this week end if weather permits so I should have some interesting video then.

Hornets making nests in the peaks of my house better take notice...I'm coming for them.

Check the distance.

Pumping it out.
