Itís done the hard work is over.
Now itís a case of tweaking,checking pressures and possibly making the holes in the plenum bigger.

After bombing around at the hcbd hoverin trying my best to break the eagle 4.
I discovered the following.
Plenum pressure to is 80 thingies and the skirt pressure is 60 thingies.
Exhaust is too loud.
Lift engine needs an electric pump.
Blades need a tweak to get the max revs down from 9500 to 8000
Lift duct need cutting so the bottom edge is at the same level as the blades
Trailer needs work.
So all in all a fantastic result.

Often thought about fitting an electric fuel pump when I had that setup, nevet bothered as the pulse pump never failed.

The Space below the blades quite tight. Also should allow the air to distribute better. I could be wrong and Iím sure someone will advise me if Iím right or wrong.

Not sure yet think might need a better fuel filter. The inline one is vertical so there is a air in it. May get a subaru filter like I have on the bmw.

Ideally a fuel filter with a water trap, about 15 quid from eBay
