I think the starting problem has been solved! I got the ECU back fron Jan with the latest updat installed. Have 4 or 5 starts with the temp in the 25-35 deg. range.It seems to fire up after a few revs, but gining how cold it was, thats not bad. WAY LOT better than before.

Now if we could just get some warm weather.

I would love to see some images showing the design/installation of your heater installation.

No, I made one out of a VW oil cooler and two pancake fans.

Cheaper that way.

It was -4 c up here today and the flying was wonderful. The 2 stroke fired right up and the dense air made the performance fantastic. Go fly it.
