    bought a tablet neoprene cover from ebay for the radiator on my Quik and put a zip in so it's removable in the summer months, never thought about the oil tank but I guess the same principle could be applied.

    I just bought a roll of neoprene from radionics and going to set about making my own. I'll let you know how it goes..

    Update on the cover first time I have flown in winter and the oil temp is in the normal range rather than just getting off the peg.

    mines sitting at 85 degrees with the neoprene one. Methinks I need a mk2 version that covers the bottom and is thicker as I want it nearer 100 degrees
