How do i hook up a push button starter

Contact Leon at Sky Cruiser Manufacturing: Chrome-moly steel tubing used for the main Quad frame with an aluminum prop guard cage. Powder Coated ; 1" Solid Fiberglass Axles, fold down seat. Bare Quad weighs in at 58 before adding cage and motor installation. Low Attachment Points for easy inflation, good ground handling stability. Mounting the Apco Mayday Bi rescue parachute adds 9 pounds. The minimum recommended operating temperature for this engine is at a water temp of degrees F.

While Polini now offers an optional 60 degree C degrees F thermostat Polini part which mounts inside the cylinder head water hose fitting, it was not included with engines being shipped when I ordered my engine. Adding the thermostat makes a lot of sense to me Belite now offers the Thermostat on their parts page- see the links at the bottom of this page.

The Thermostat kit parts Above: Coolant Drain plug with red fiber gasket on bottom of the water pump. Once a catch container is in place, opening the reservoir cap allows the coolant to flow out freely.

The original O-ring sits in a recess in the upper thermostat housing flange. New lower O-Ring and lower aluminum adapter set in place; silicone grease is recommended on the O rings.

Upper aluminum thermostat adapter set in place Above: When properly assembled, there is no gap where the upper housing meets the head.

This is a ground-adjustable pitch propeller and each blade is adjusted individually. When previously using the 56" diameter 3 blade GSC prop which Leon had supplied with this quad, I had to reduce the pitch on the three blade set to 9. My technique for getting fine changes in blade pitch while making the adjustments: A fine index mark on the base of each blade where it enters the prop hub helps me to see the slight changes in pitch angle while doing these adjustments.

I use a measuring stick from the side cage frame tube to insure that both blade tips are tracking the same distance from that frame tube as I rotate the prop, recheck the pitch angle once more on all blades, and then tighten all bolts to the foot-pound torque recommended by GSC. I added an enlarged metal instrument panel in order to mount the Fly Henry PPG Meter as well as the smaller water temperature gauge.

ALL one might actually need beyond the water temperature gauge is an EGT gauge and a tachometer, but this PPG meter combines many additional capabilities. I also bought the fuel tank level probe so that I can have a fuel level display while on longer cross-country flights. On the left, I mount my Garmin GPS; it has topo maps loaded as well as offering an ongoing readout of altitude and relative ground speed.

It stores minimum and maximum readings for later display. The EGT readout is especially helpful in establishing the optimum jetting for full throttle running. I now use a newer Garmin GPSmap64s. The bottom center switch is the electric start push button momentary switch. The two red push button switches are used to test the ignitions by disabling each of them temporarily and separately.

The right is for the magneto ignition; this normally OPEN switch is pushed to short that ignition to engine ground, thereby killing that ignition spark. The engine will run on either ignition separately.

It runs very smoothly and reliably with both ignitions active- especially noticeable when doing test runs at the full RPM. To kill the engine in a conventional aircraft installation, the top master toggle switch is toggled to the left, killing both ignitions. So there needs to be a way to kill the engine with a kill switch on the throttle handle while making a landing approach, or whenever the pilot wants to immediately shut down the engine.

That 12 volt supply comes into the ignition wiring unit on the violet wire with the black stripe shown in this photo below. Normally Open contacts to ground the magneto ignition when the switch pushed. Normally Closed contacts to OPEN the 12 volt power to the electronic ignition when the switch is pushed. The new dual ignition kill switch mounted in a plastic end cap, and the final finished throttle. It requires dismounting the exhaust system from the engine to do this installation.

I also found that the length of the hang loops as provided by Skycruiser were long enough so that, when hooked in, the trimmers on the risers on my Mac Para Muse 3 XL wing would interfere with the hang guide loops on the top frame. That makes them more accessible for possible in-flight trimming adjustments, while also keeping them where they can not hang up on the upper frame guide rings. An identical pair of 24" long extensions were sewn up from Stitching also extends beyond this center overlapped section.

The bridles with their necessary extensions also run down through the riser guide rings on the upper frame members, and are always connected to the same caribiners where the wing riser connection loops also attach to the low hang loops.

Jetting, Adjustment, Tuning Above: The upper brass screw is the idle speed adjustment. The main jet is accessible through the larger aluminum bottom cap. With too much prop pitch, the engine can not run up to full RPM, regardless of the mixture.

More pitch can be used on an adjustable pitch prop at lower altitudes, where the engine can produce more power in the denser air. I next tried a 40 pilot jet, then a I Tried a 32 for quite a while, but it acted lean on cold morning starts, so I have switched back to the Unfortunately, the PPGmeter malfunctioned after 38 hours of flight time and had to be removed. Throttle cable length rough adjustment is primarily done at the throttle lever.

The hand pull rope flash starter is also included. The manual includes the instructions for it. A closer look at the lower end attachment of the new rated low hang loops in their position on the lower frame tubes. Above is a view of the right side rigging showing the new Their lower ends are looped around the lower frame tube straddling the frame tube bolt just under the seat; this bolt will keep this loop from sliding forward or back on the frame to keep the hang angle consistent.

You can also see my modified pack which fits within the forward lower frame in front of the seat. Above are the results of my work to remedy this issue. I used a Dremel belt and disk sander unit to do this, ending up with a smooth outer surface which matches the interior of the rubber boot.

Finding a listing for a replacement rubber part online for this Polini engine was elusive; while getting a new rubber boot would take time, I decided to do a reinforcing repair to the original one. The bobbin makes handling the thread far easier than it would be to work with the spool of thread alone.

The first step is to remove all traces of the 2 stroke mix oil from all surfaces and any cracks in the rubber connecting boot. All traces of oil must be eliminated so that the black silicone adhesive can bond strongly to the rubber. Next, while the adhesive is freshly applied and wet, the kevlar thread is wrapped around the entire stressed rubber area, criss-crossing back and forth to create a weave that crosses all of the stressed area and adding the desired strength. This is the area where the clamp will be reinstalled later.

Once the thread has been wrapped on adequately, more of the Permatex black silicone is applied over it to end up with the thread being completely wetted and covered with a thin smooth layer of the adhesive. Make sure the inner surface is smooth- wipe away excess, then set the part aside in a warm place to let the silicone cure out for about 24 hours.

Again, this was seen within about 5 months of the factory assembly of this engine. This was something that I wanted to modify. Taking the weight off this rubber mount part was my next project.

So Polini may need to improve the quality of their rubber carburetor mounting parts. Maybe they are already in the process of doing so- I hope so. But now I know to keep watching these areas during my pre-flight inspections. This is a rather disturbing discovery. The motor mounts which came with my engine are failing after only 15 months in service and relatively limited flying time.

I have now replaced these with a different through-bolt bushing setup! With the stock upper motor mounts, there is nothing to stop the engine from leaning way out of position if these upper motor mounts fail! These are the parts of the replacement through-bolt motor mount setup.

New through-bolt upper mounts installed. In September of I ordered the new MacPara Charger reflex airfoil wing in the 31 square meter size. At my wibng loading in this thin high altitude air, it cruises at 37 MPH in full reflex trim- great for the long cross country flights I enjoy. The wing tip steering is ] My Strobe Light can be quickly mounted just above the radiator, using nylon tie wraps. I use an independent Lithium-Ion Battery to power mine; it can optionally be wired into the 12V system.

It also makes this PPG more visible to low flying aircraft. On two occasions my left rear wheel has bound up on the axle while doing ground run tests- it stopped this Quad from rolling rudely and abruptly. This would have been bad news if I had the wing in the air at the time. I first removed some excess powder coat paint from all four axles after finding that the inner sleeve of the bearing was not sliding over it, but that did not cure the problem.

The wheel bearings needed to be shimmed away from the inner stop plate. The new NyLock wheel nuts are set in close with just a slight bit of clearance, where the outer safety keeper washer can still be freely turned with my fingers. A temporary remedy is to add tire sealant to these tires. I have now installed a full set of replacement 15x6. These are a tougher 4-ply garden tire, weighing only 5. This fabric cover is wide enough to cover this PPG Quad on the trailer nicely, including covering the rescue parachute while it is mounted on the quad.

This was far too close to run safely! So I stripped off the netting and disassembled the cage support members.
