FIRE EATER FOR GAS TURBINES AND PETROL ENGINES
AND LIPO AIRCRAFT
The tube should be placed in the fuselage, not next to the motor or exhaust pipe, as a temperatureof around 100c will cause it to activate. The tube can be attached using tie wraps, servo tape or epoxy, whichever is convenient, but NOT HOT MELT ADHESIVE. It should be placed high in the topof the fuselage.The system works by inerting the air in the fuselage. The 1 metre folded tube will protect a fuselagewith a volume of approx. 60 litres, and a O.5 metre will protect a fuselage with a volume of approx. 30litres. If the aircraft has large air intakes, it may be advisable to go to the 1 metre folded tube, which will inert approx. 60 litres, because of the losses through the air intakes etc and the airflow.
