Default Gaui NX4 --- stretched and Gas Engine

Pardon my cluttered work bench.....

The Gaui NX4 with the T-10 gas engine and a X4ii canopy all ready for the weekend. Got my jug of unleaded ($2.25/gallon at Exxon and my two stroke oil all mixed up) and am ready to go fly.

Figured would show off the new colorful canopy and yeller tail fin (carbon fin painted yellow )

Happy flying ya all.

I was concerned about the exposed CDI unit under the belly, in case of hard landings / botched autos.

I've cut a rough template to test the idea and will cut braces out of CF sheet. Can likely remove a lot of material in the center to lighten it.

Default my poor EI Unit

My poor unit just gets crushed. I like the idea. Helps save that poor thing.

What about the wire mesh on the spark plug wire? I started having interference with my FBL unit. I narrowed it down to the electronic ignition but my wire mesh wrap on the spark plug wire we all frayed and coming apart. I assume that would allow some interference out to the FBL/radio.

Anyone have thought on how to check this out and test without buying another unit.

If you look at the picture, you can see I wrapped the plug lead in plastic cable wrap. It doesn't touch the CF of the frame anywhere.

I know it earths on the plug, head, etc and through to the frame that way, but it might help
