Default RV-3B Smoking

Yesterday I set out to get some video of the smoke trail in my new RV-3B.
Two flights with two new (to me) camera mount positions generated
the footage for this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lCh2bq9sNH8&feature=plcp

Hope it helps builder motivation.
Cheers,
- Dan Benua

Nice video, pretty flight, good music. And a dynamite airplane with a beautiful paint job.

Well done!

Dave

Fabulous video, did you design the smoke system yourself or are you using an off the shelf package?

Cheers
Eddie

What a GREAT video Dan!! Well done!

Have you documented your smoke system anywhere? If so, I'd really appreciate a link. I'd love to install one but it hasn't risen to the top of my list yet.

Thx!
