I wanted to finally reveal an electronics project that some of you may want to build.
It is cold outside, the engines need to be warmed for long periods of time, and no one wants to go to the hangar and wait for hours while the engine slowly soaks in heat.

Little warning for the forum though, I'm a complete newbie, so there will be lots of questions from me :)
Looking forward to meeting you at a future…Continue
