Solar Heat for plane

For those of you "up north" and in need of a quick project I cobbled together a Self Contained  "Solar Heater" for my plane.  To date I have been impressed and have not had to do any pre-heating with the "ole red dragon".We had some cold (teens) wx a few weeks ago and the thing worked very well OAT 18F, Heater 180F - 205F, (that's right) and cowl temp 100F that's with no fan. I don't see the 100F at the oil temp gauge because of air flows but the oil is consistently in the high 40's for start…See More
