Returning planes in lockdown

Postby Mike P » Tue May 05, 2020 1:40 pm

Hi Guys
I know how tempting it is to get out that nitro plane that's been sitting on the shelf and give it a check around for those long awaited flying days.
Just like many of us I have found myself with some time, when checking your planes please don't forget the fuel tank, these can suffer with the brass pipes being eaten by the fuel fumes, the clunk pipe hardening and the remaining oil glueing up various pipes etc.
The photo shows a good example with the clunk pipe being rigid, one of the vent pipes rotted off and the other cracked, this would have arisen to problems at the field if not attended too.
