Fuel Flow Test
Join Zenith Aircraft Builders and Flyers
It was really difficult deciding how to position the plane to a 20 degree pitch to measure the electric fuel pumps fuel flow at the high pitch angle recommended for a good test. I felt it would be too precariously dangerous jacking the plane to that high of a configuration. I finally found a "ditch" that was perfect to back the plane down into. Also I just had to stabilize the front gear to maintain it about 18 inches high. It does make it look like a taildragger and a crash. I really had not thought about how it made it look. LOL
When I saw the thumbnail my first thought was "Oh no, a crash?"
Taildragger and the angle gave quite a false illusion ;-) Looks good!
