Static Electricity
Build-up and Discharge
in your turbine powered model. 

The effect of static electricity build-up and discharge is a problem associated with large capacity fuel systems in low humidity conditions.
The electro-static charge is caused by the relative motion of two non-conductive materials such as fuel flowing through tubing, or fuel sloshing in an epoxy/Kevlar or plastic tank. The charge accumulation is greatly enabled by the lack of moisture in the air. The large fuel tanks and more powerful fuel pumping systems can accumulate 20,000+ volts. The discharge event can, and has on occasions, disabled the engine E.C.U. and even the R/C receiver.
BVM's first confirmed experience with this phenomena was with the prototype Ultra Bandit on an unusually dry day in October '05. The discharge occurred as the wheels left the ground. We had to repair the model.
Since low humidity is a rarity in Florida, it took us awhile to identify the problem and address the solution. The simple solution is this fuel additive. Just add 2 cap full's per 5 gal. mix of Jet A, Kerosene, or Diesel fuel.
