Building and Flying Info / Your Profession / Other Background Info
I have been flying C-FCAM since 2001. Installed new RAM115 soob conversion 2 years ago. What a wild child on take off!!
I also fly a Vans RV9A that I finished in 2014. Its a real contrast when transitioning between these two aircraft!
I haven't had much of a chance to catch up with you. Working on the fuselage now. Still planning on the ea81 for my powerplant. I got several parts to reduce weight, and make more power. I got the newer front nose fork, and matching post, lighter, and stronger. Charlie
Hey Cam, is your ea81 fuel injected? What was the weight? It is frustrating to see no alternative to rotax. I have never liked their motors, and certainly not their price. A buddy has the Suzuki motor,belt drive, in his, but I believe it to be heavier than the subaru. I feel really good about the quality, dependability, and durability of the ea81. Just wished it was lighter. The D motor is a great looking motor, just no support, or track record in the 701. Well one rep. Is in Canada. Not much help in the southern U.S. artillery has a nice set up, just waiting for their demonstrator 701 to.fly, still16+k for f2f, and engine, all at 220 lbs, less prop and spinner. Jabiru can't turn a big prop, and makes it's max h.p. @ 3100 rpm, being direct drive, you see the issue there. Sheesh where to turn for an engine. Thanks Charlie
