not sure I'm posting in the right forum (could not find any history on the subject), but that is the best I found so here goes:
Worried by an eventual in flight fire on my VariEze's C-90 and the urgency of such a situation, I'm thinking about installing some kindof fire warning system. This system would ideally be easy to manufacture and install, reliable, cheap and light (MI #xxx ).
2 simple ideas that popped to my mind, using my rear view mirror (the very one I used to check on the fuel quantity) to keep watching on the engine behind me, or using a kinda OAT gage with an over temp warning...
The ideal warning system would be some big red light & bell system to wake me up, kinda what we find on our airliners
Ideas, examples, pictures, suggestions? All are more than welcome, thanx!
