All ready to go for a launch with the jet, but no site suitable. Need 3-4km for the run preferably over flat land so it can nice and low..and a huge grass field to aim for when the fuel runs out.. anyone have a site?

Excellent ... "without fire" heheh :)

Is it getting any easier / less nerve-racking to fly?

Can I just say... you could do a sort of mid-air tug of war between the Hex and the payload ... full throttle, see if it can hold GPS position while the plane tries to pull it along. Just talking out loud here :D

Sounds wonderful, better than some of the development builds of EJ200  :D
Are you getting air in the fuel, seems a lot of bubbles?

Can't wait for maiden, good luck.

Thanks! The air in the fuel was the end of the tank...the first bubbles are coming from the main tank to the bubble tank/air trap, then you see bubbles on the lower pipe, that is the feed to the engine, and it cuts out as soon as there are bubbles in that line.

Might have guessed you had it sorted  :D
I worked on a mates ford van years ago, we transplanted an xr3i engine in it. It would only run for 20mins, then cough and splutter. Eventually after weeks we realised that it was air in fuel lines, caused by the pressure return. An air separator sorted it  :D :D :D :D

It was a success!!!!! YES!!!!!! Three years of messing around on and off, so many problems along the way, gave up drinking to help pay for the engine. Nearly gave up on the whole project a few times. I have learnt a huge amount about composites, electronics, jet engines and patience! Follow your dreams kids: The new worlds fastest FPV plane @ 502 kph / 312mph. (more to come).... Thanks for all the support along the way guys!!
