I am inserting a couple of pictures of the way I use your micro timers with
your remote fuel shut off so you can how I set it up. I simply bend the angled
plate that takes the surgical tubing down so it’s parallel to the timer and out
of the way. I then measure and fix the wire with a loop using a piece of thin
copper tubing to squeeze the loop in place. This hooks over the scroll wire and
is held down by the spring device that formally acted to pinch off the tubing.
The white plane is a 600 Spacer with a Fox .29. The Red plane is a ½ A Astrostar
with a TD .049. The system works equally well in both planes. I also use the
system on my 432 Ramrods. The remote fuel shut off is very close to the NVA and
causes a very fast quick acting fuel shut-off. The micro timers seem to handle
the extra tension from the RPO easily. The Micro-timers are extremely accurate
and when I determine the exact spot to set it I can usually get consistent
cut-off’s within a tenth of a second on every flight. The timers are also light
weight, which is very important in 1/2A planes.
