"Hi Joe   Did you ever figure out a solution for the center pin in the Viking spring replacement and how it hits the motor mount?  I remember you were trying something with a cable."

Rotax 912iS Sport Announced

Looks like there is a significant upgrade available for the 912iS. It is now called the 912iS Sport. A new airbox and software upgrade (plus a few other minor goodies) result in a higher torque curve. It looks like the parts are free for a limited time for those of us that already have the iS engine. Yay for Rotax! I'm pumped!…See More

Rotax 912iS Installation in Zenith Aircraft Information

Myself and 3 of my co CH750 builders have been planning to install the Rotax 912iS in our CH750s since the day that Rotax announced the release of the iS. Up to this point, there has been little information available so all of us have searched for scraps of info that can feed our hungary appetite for information.We talked to our (Canadian) Rotax distributor at Oshkosh and as luck would have it, they had bought a CH750 kit to install a 912iS and use as a demonstrator. That was great news for us,…See More

Trip Report #1

Posted on August 19, 2012 at 8:00pm 8 Comments

I really like reading trip reports, so here is my first trip report of hopefully many more. I have flown many cross country trips before but they were in my Beaver RX550 ultralight. This trip was the first long(ish) flight that we have taken with our CH601XLB. It was almost a year ago that Dave, Glen and myself…

Thanks Joe
I finally mounted my motor and had a concrete block for extra weight and then adjusted the rod and cut off the excess then I got on the prop end and bounced up and down and it would just barely hit the motor mount.  Before I fly I'm going to just do away with it.  Thanks again Joe

Thanks Joe, I have several years of two stroke experience with the 503 engine and am very versed in the tuning and maintenance. I honestly think that they are as dependable if not more than a certified four stroke if kept maintained properly,as I have seen my fair share of certified engines have trouble achieving 500 trouble free hours! I am happily content in my decision with the 582 install,and think it will perform quite decently in the 701. I say Thanks to You and Walt for the words of agreement with the two stroke engine!
