    I have been one critical of the flavor produced from the Skyline. I have tried many builds using too many to list. I have tried various wicking methods. Finally I found one that works wonders for producing flavor in this tank. I thought I would share what I found. I used 28g Kanthal in a very spaced build of only about 7 wraps on 2.5mm jig. This came out to 1.08 ohms. I am using one of the small 2 hole reducers (plastic) for mtl. I set the coil closer to that plastic than I have dared before at about 2mm above the air holes. At 14 watts this thing finally produced great flavor which is a first for all my builds in this tank. I also trimmed the tails of the cotton so that it lays just behind and touching the wicking openings without stuffing it in. The wicks are much thinner than I would use on something like a KF5.

    At last I have a Skyline that produces excellent flavor. I must have tried a dozens different methods in building on this tank until I got here. Hope this helps some of you who have be wondering how to get the most flavor from this tank.

    Does anybody by any chance know the exact measuremets of the INNER o ring in the base, the one on the inside as visible in the pictures posted in Coppervape's Skyline Clone ???

    I noticed this "drop kit" mentioned yesterday but I still have no idea what it actually does? I own one of these and it holds 3.5ml if you pack it. I see the China vendors are now listing it as 4ml capacity but unless they have revised it, that is not true.

    I am left to wonder if these drop kits reduce the already small capacity of the Skyline? Is this something to do with TPD?

    10, 11 or 12 mm x 1 works fine.

    OK, thanks all. Will not order one of those chinese shop o-ring packs, and I cannot recommend them. Most of those o-rings are of minor quality, but I did buy a good quality (NBR 70) selection of o-rings in Germany and only needed the correct size.

    But the funny thing is this: since I found my inner o ring shattered to pieces inside the Skyline I removed it and used the Skyline without the o-ring just to test - and it´s absolutely NOT needed. Inf act to me it seems liquid flow is BETTER without the o-ring! The only purpose I can think of it could serve is to have a final seal for the inner liquid flow "shutter" coming down. What can happen without this o-ring is that you screw down the shutter too much and the top cap piece cannot grip the little nut any more that rotates the LC. But even with the LC not fully closed I had no problem when refilling.

    Help! Just got my coppervape skyline and cannot for the life of me get the juice flow to turn. Changing the o ring under the top juice flow twisty bit won't do anything as even with this whole section removed it still won't budge. I've tried rubber grippers and putting needlenose pliers into the fill ports to twist and still no joy. Anyone got any ideas please?!

    I had the same issue when i just got my first Skyline. Make sure that the outer ring (around the jfc/driptip) is screwed on really straight. Are you sure you're trying to turn the right part? (Regelaar is dutch for control)

    Also, when seen from the top, you need to turn it CCW to loosen.

    Taking it apart and lubing the o-rings with juice can help too.

    As a further suggestion....you can remove the jfc by unscrewing it from the bottom. Of course the deck will have to be removed to do this. You can just stick your finger in and with a little pressure unscrew it counter clockwise. Once it is removed clean it, dry it then coat it with some very high vg juice. Ideally you would use a flavorless 100%vg. Then reinstall. It should now move freely. In theory, it is supposed to self lube when you fill the tank but with new tanks it does not always do this. That is because there is almost no space between the jfc and the outer sleeve. If both metals are dry it cannot be moved without considerable force.
