        Really want to stay away from the festo valve before the x45 fuel pump, probably not going with UAT in the Avanti as others have successfully done.
        Im using a festo shutoff valve in my X45 install with zero issues. Jet cat sell a barbed shutoff

          Awesome! Do you still have the mold? If able, would you be willing to make two more. I'm looking for those exact demotions for my eflite F/A-18

                  Has anyone ordered a thrust tube that was a proper fitment for the Freewing Avanti? I want to order one but there are so many sizes I am afraid to order the wrong one.
                  Would really appreciate any links of thrust tubes that fit this aircraft. Thank you in advance!

                          Gotcha. As mentioned above, HAB has a conversion kit (linked below) for the K30 and K45 specifically for the Freewing Avanti S.

                            Hello to everybody. I would like to install a 4.5 Kg turbine in a Freewing A-10 in one engine nacelle. What should be the angle of misalignment and to which side. Thank you for any feedback.

                              I am new to turbines and want to get a proper refueler. I know Jersey Modeler offers a nice setup for kerosene but way too expensive. Slimline offers a Flilghtline Refueler that is a manual pump setup but advertises it as a Gas refueler. My question is, are the refuelers that can be used for gas safe to use for kerosene. I would not want contamination if the seals, tubing or pumps would deteriorate using kerosene. Any help would be appreciated.

                                Gas fuel tube and fittings are ok for kerosene and deisal, just make sure you don't have any silicone tubing anywhere. Also a pump suitable for gas and kerosene has to be used.

                                  I've just finished my conversion of my Freewing F22 Raptor using a X45 and I must say, it's my best flying small jet yet! Very quiet in the air and the flattened home made pipe fives a real throaty growl at military power!! It balances without lead by having a 2200 battery in the nose cone and my home made one litre tank fits right over the CG and take-off weight is about 4.3kgs, so a 7-10 minute flight is possible. Here are some pictures of the build and a hat-cam video of a flight. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uc1Vzg5KxRk
