“Once you have tasted flight, you will forever walk the earth with your eyes turned
for there you have been, and there you will always long to return.”
- Leonardo da Vinci
During certain times while flying, Carburetor Heat is used to help prevent icing
and a possible engine failure. But during high workload situations I sometimes forget
to turn it off which prevents the engine from generating full power. I decided to
design something to remind me that the Carburetor Heat was on . So in keeping with
the KIS principle it had to be simple, reliable, cheap to build and easy to install.
This is what I came up with.
