- Fisher Celebrity (Biplane) Single seat Dominator
My old radiator was working just fine but I decided to replace it because of the damage created by a loose seat belt(oops). I had seen several other Dominators with the smaller radiator that is mounted at an angle following the frame. It took the better part of my Saturday to weld up brackets to hold it in place. Fired it up and ran it on the ground for 5 minutes or so with no leaks. Time to give it a test flight at the airport. Decided to stay in the pattern just in case I needed to land. Flew it for 30 minutes without issue. The average temp did go up 10 from 140 to 150 but still well within range. As soon as the weather allows it's time to take it out and see if I picked up any speed with the drag reduction. I used the radiator that was listed in Joe P's Dominator mod posting. Seems to be a good enhancement to an already great gyro.
