Hi All,

Has anyone made any progress on a fuel level sensor? I know there were some posts on the old list but the topic kinda faded away.

Happy flying,

Jim

The Oct 2003 issue of Nuts and Volts Magazine has a Fluid Level Monitor project (see page 51). It uses an LCD readout and is based on the TI MSP430 MCU.

It uses a probe capacitance measuring technique. The article's info could be used as a basis for a custom solution.

Thanks Mr. RC-CAM! I'll see if I can round up a copy of the magazine. Do you know if they carry it at large book stores like Borders or Barnes & Noble?

I am not sure if they carry it. You might want to check the Nuts & Volts web site to see if they mention where the mag can be bought.
