    Re: Krill Ultimate V2 / GP123

    So while the family was sleeping this AM, I got the fuse taped to a column on the main floor (high ceilings, LOL) and got the motor / standoff positioned on the motorbox!!

    Love this way of doing it! So precise!

    Ignition mounted. The exit holes in the mbox are lined with Velcro tape to prevent any chaffing/cutting of the ignition leads

    Re: Krill Ultimate V2 / GP123

    So the good and bad is that Krill give you a shell with some formers... so had to make up a throttle servo tray. I wanted something where the servo was easily removeable and that the servo arm moved in same plane as throttle arm.

    After a bunch of cardboard templates, came up with this. Crazy sturdy inside the fuse. 0 flex.

    Love these little MKS servos!

    Throttle arm is a 15mm metal Secraft from Esprit Models... 2mm hole is drilled to 1/8” and the inner sleeve of Nyrod used as a bushing for the metal 4-40 clevis. Throttle rod is 4-40 threaded rod Hysol’d in CF tube.

    Re: Krill Ultimate V2 / GP123

    So not sure what Krill was thinking but they spaced the cans waaaaay too far apart on their mount. Can’t think of a single motor/can combo that this would work. Also I would need an 8” extension on the can stingers to exit the fuse because the cans are so high. Somebody was into the liquor at Krill !!

    First pic is the disaster
    Second pic is how the cans should be

    New can mount started this AM

    Re: Krill Ultimate V2 / GP123

    Here is the new can mount.

    I moved the mount rearward also for 2 reasons...
    1) closer to CG of cans to take stress off the headers
    2) stronger because I could fillet Hysol onto the wingtube

    Headerlength set at 11.5” with 1/8” gap at couplers to the MTW cans.

    Knuckle headers got Silver Soldered in the proper orientation.

    And here’s the completed exhaust.

    The black sealant is “The Right Stuff”... a knockoff of Hondabond. Amazing sealant if you’ve never tried it. Only some Canadian Tires sell it.
