QTX  now IRFP4227      plastic  en  drain  isolated from cool flange
 that isolated drain tricked me  i had +V supplied over the heathsink for the IRF540
but that did not work with this IRFP i needed to power it over pin2
although  the document shows that cool flange and pin 2 are both drain

But if could not get it to work stable, the some sort of wild oscillations  that killed the IRF540
appear sometimes

found that the oscillation was caused by the 475 band filter and puls shaper
it is stable now it stays cool only the air coils heath up
Ths IRFP  is more like a tube it can survive bad treatment more..
