Smoke Pump Jet version in 3D plane.

  • Hello!

    A few years ago I bought a Jet version smoke pump.

    I have installed it on a 106 "Edge, on the firewall right next to the engine.

    Currently the pump works very well, and I have no problems with it.

    The problem I have is that when I switch off the pump from the radio, the smoke keeps coming out of the exhaust, in other words, there is an excess of smoke fluid in the exhaust.

    If I decrease the flow of the liquid, the smoke does not work.

    The liquid I use is the Powerbox Smoke Oil Blue Max

    I wonder if:

    • It is correct where I have installed the pump (see picture).
    • The Jet version can be used in a 3D plane with a DA-120.
    • I need to use some valves to control the flow.

    I would appreciate your help. :thumbup:

  • Hello Richard,

    thank you for your reply.

    I have tried lowering to the minimum possible, but if I go too low, the pump does not smoke, so I wonder if where I have installed the pump is okay.

    These last few months I have tried to adjust the pump, but without favorable results. ;(;(

    If I install longer tubes between the pump and the muffler, could it work?

    Thank you for your help.

  • Hello Richard,

    Thanks for your support and help.

    I agree with you. I think there is too much flow and I cannot control it. I've spent the whole summer trying to fix this to no avail.

    I have made a mistake when buying the pump, I will buy the other model. 8)

    I have friends who fly jet, surely someone will be interested in my smoke pump. ;)

    Great support!, thank you a lot! :thumbup:

    Cheers from Switzerland, Federico.-
