Default Toledo 2012: Need Smoke For Your Electric? We Got Ya Covered!

Wow.. this is a COOOOOL item.
As electrics grow in popularity, the want for a good smoke system to use on electric planes has been a point of discussion for a while. Old military smoke bombs, and other powder devices have been used, but with limited success. Also, once they are started the smoke is full on until they burn out. But now thanks to UsaRCJets.com real smoke is no longer a problem.

UsaRCJets.com is now importing the Smoke EL system. This system uses a heating element and a paraffin based smoke oil and allows you to actually use the smoke system just like you would on a gas motor! You can get approximately 2 - 3 minutes of operating time on a 5S 2650 mAh battery with between 250 - 500ml tank!

The medium set up weighs just 380 grams, and the small set up weighs just 140g!

Now EDF jets and Electric planes can smoke it up just like turbines and Gassers!

Again, check out www.usarcjets.com for more info!

Default smoke

looks like a great sail plane application!! Good to know that this is available. Can the elements be modified to be mounted within dummy exhaust stacks like turbo prop planes?

Thanks
Eric
