  I should have mentioned this in the original post.  Thanks to getting busted!
I still have good supplies of latex tubing for bladders.  It's pure latex, 1/16in wall, 1/4in i.d.  This works best for fast and F2D.  The finer thread NVA you can find gives better results.  It's about 15psi.  The 1/16in. wall does tend to develop a soft spot faster though.

I also have 1/32in wall latex with a 3/16in. id. for o.049 up to 15cu.in engines, primarily for sport flying.

The last type comes in black latex with a 0.380 o.d., 0.185 id, 0.095 wall thickness.  This is best for F2D.  They generally have finer threads for better fuel metering and the fuel compartment are usually larger 0.D and a shorter length.  The thicker wall gives higher pressure  and longer lifespan.  Try a sample before you buy.


Hi  Dennis and others.  Unfortunately, I spent the last 6 weeks getting over a cerebral hemorrhages.  Seems to  be slowly getting better, but the long term outlook stinks.

Now that it's been diagnosed I can understand some of the various symptoms- dizziness, confusion, stumbling, forgetting name of someone you were talking to, while talking,  etc.etc. etc.

Phil Cartier.
stay HEALTHY and have fun flying Combat.

ps. We had our first contest over in New Jersey last Sunday.  I flew all four matches pretty well with no face plants.

Check Home Depot, in the section where PVC pipe is sold.

For years I've used their semi-transparent yellow latex tubing, 3/8" OD x 1/4" ID. Works fine and lasts a long time. About $20 for 10 feet.

Chad

PS- Wishing you the best, Phil. You're in my prayers.

What type of engine and needle valve assembly are you using the bladders on?

Hello Kevin,

I've used that Home Depot tubing for LA25s, Nelson 36s and Fora 15s.

I use the OS-10a NVAs for the LA25s and N36s.
