Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

Hahaha student. That is what we are known as? It is easy to keep the student status Doug. Remove some landing gear, forget a wing tube and clip a few trees every now and then. All the things to keep you in the student program. Hell we can use a buddy box and put on a real show. 10sec between student switching would be a good starting point. You will have to put a big L on your canopy as a student so everyone else understands that we need our space.

Dumass, he will be listed as one of your students.

But now you mention a little of this years experience already. I see why you might be sensitive (ha-ha)

Time to drive.
You guy's go fly.

Jeff is still trying to figure out how to fly a stick without a tube.

Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

Here is a question for all you engine gurus!

What is the general relationship between throttle arm angle and fuel flow?
Linear or some other function?

Lets assume we are talking about walbro, tuned properly, normal level flight in air operation. Forget servo and linkage effects. Just basic carb operation.

Linear.

The plate should move from ~3 degrees to 90 degrees.
