Re: REFLECTOR: Re:variable scoops

Hi David i did install a flap at the oil cooling inlet on my xlrg 300 and
flown over 200 hres,i was using this flap on take off and climb to improve
the oil cooling and been able to maintain a high angle of climb without
having a high oil temperature.On steady climb at 110 knots the oil
temperature was maintening at 200 degre fa. and during cruising this flap
was close by and control vernier.I sold my velocity to a SanFrancisco
gentlemen and i already building an other one and i will install again the
oil cooler flap and also the scoop engine cooling flap it was also very
useful at high altitude and during cool temperature.
Good luck
