Fuel Type

BEL RAY H1R / Aral Ultimate 102

We recommend the use of Aral Ultimate 102 and a good synthetic two stroke oil like BEL-RAY H1R.

Original DA Fuel Dot “Tankcap with DA-Logo”

The DA Fuel Dot serves as a cap for filling the tank. Very neat and workmanlike appearance.

The cap has an O-ring which holds it in the bezel. The red anodised screws have an English thread and these must be screwed into the fuselage wood covering as a self tapping sheet metal screw would be.

Diameter 34 mm, Weight including screws 16 g.
