    Sorry @Roadster2 ... Although they seem like good inverters 20D00075 :thumbs ... but we need these two red circled external terminals to be connected to ground under normal operation "Sink" mode . That's how you're going to connect them when using the Opto-Couple board .
    Not to the 24v volt supply "Source" mode .

    please ask if there is a "sink / source" switch or jumper that can define the external terminals to be in the sink mode .

    Probably a fan to supply the engine with the use of the air flow generated by the propeller motor is insufficient.

    Hi @speedy - many thanks, that's a great help. I'll get on the supplier and query them about that. They have mentioned that they can supply alternative Inverters so if it's a no-go on these can you recommend an alternative make/model that I could ask them about.

    Thanks
