CT smoke show

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,

I am new member here, first time to share by experience with CT, i have working with CT for almost 3 years in Taiwan. 

i have seen some of my friend installed smoke injection device with CT, nearby Rotax carburetor engine, here attached  some photos for your look.

 

we are still trying to improve the impression by colorful smoke instead of just white to get the strong look during the air, have you guys seen somebody done this before in USA or other country with CT ?

 

have a nice weekend.

Bo Sen Chen.

Neat! It's been talked about here somewhere, but never done that I know of.  What is the mechanism?

Or you can make your own. The smoke is produced by injecting a paraffin based oil into the hot exhaust system and having it burn. All you need is a tank, pump, fitting in the exhaust, and of course the oil.

As for adding color I don't recall anyone having anything other than white using this method, I have though seen colored smoke from smoke canisters. Years ago there was an airplane on the airshow circuit that was sponsored by Mennen aftershave, and it had aftershave scented smoke.

On my model RC planes with smoke if you don't pump to much oil there is really not much

if at all, residue on bottom, not sure about Rotax engine. With the high ex. temps these

engines have should burn fairly clean.

Hi everyone,

WOW!! 

I never expect that will receive reply, appreciate for your time and opinions, yes. the owner did buy a kit which also used for Air force military aircraft (AT3 trainer), he mount the tank (aluminum) with right seat rail of CT.

 

i do not know the exactly of injected chemical material, but when we clean it out after injected, it's easily clean up  by hand with papers, i think it can not purely made by oil, let me try to investigate into later.

 

we are trying to use colorful smoke instead of just white, hope we will find it which can be used under environment friendly control in Taiwan, has somebody know what kind of colorful smoke that i can just buy from USA ? 

 

by the way, i am a employee of AeroJones Aviation of Taiwan. we are now into serial production since received CAAC production approval in 2015, we have deliveries 11 aircraft (also spare parts order) in USA and Taiwan  last year, good to know, the most of orders are still placed form USA this year so far, so, we are going ahead with those order!

 

please don't get me wrong, i am not responsible for sales, just a guy like to work with CT ;-)

 

again, thank for your attention! share some photos of our production facility : )

thanks!! i also hear some of my USA friends talk about this.

 

the initial idea is just having fun and surprise our friends, we install aluminum tank (approximately 20*30*40 cm) on left seat, mounted with rail guide (of course you have to remove seat for tank installation)

 

afterward, we injected it (it's a chemical staff similar like water but definitely not oil, it can be easily burn when it injected from liquid into fog, that's how i know to create smoke)

You can find a few systems on Aircraft Spruce. About $750 to $1200 depending on tank size and complexity.

Cool!! yes actually we purchase such smoke kit in Taiwan, it's only cost 1000 NT (about $ 30 something) plus special chemical liquid for burning.

 

let me try to contact Aircraft Spruce to see if i can order colorful smoke material, thank you for your information!

Understood, think i need do some deep analyst to the chemical material, nevertheless, thanks for your information  :)

Thanks so much for all the pictures of the AeroJones assembly and employees, it looks like a great, high-quality facility!  I am just super excited that such a committed company with adequate resources has taken over the CT line.

 

Wow, that oil tank is huge...you could probably be "smoke on" for an entire flight!

Yes, we create such production environment not only just increase production efficiency but also better quality!

we are welcome for any one of friend come and have a look for any recommendation.

 

I had a chance to visit Long Mountain Aviation in LasVgas to work with CT last year, i admired the maintenance work area there, great facility, huge space for daily work, professional work flow and great guy to work with.

 

Yes, the tank is little bit huge..but actually we do not use oil, it's a special chemical material more like water, you might make a good point that a possibility of "smoke" in the flight, actually, we install shut off valve on the flow line, it can easily close anytime, nevertheless, you might have a good point that is might be a possibility that "smoke flow back", the answer is no, due to pump boost it all the way to muffler and injected though exhaust tube.      

 

again, thanks for your comment.

Oh, I was not saying there was any issue with the smoke setup.  I only meant that with a tank than big, you could run the smoke for a very long time!

 

Sorry if the language difference confused my meaning.
