Hey John,

Not to start anything, but if you keep that project as a nosewheel airplane I would consider another engine besides the corvair.  It comes out heavy and does not have good low speed thrust for the weight.  We just had a local guy break the nosegear on his corvair powered HDS.  By the time you get everything FWF installed, you will not have saved much over a used 80hp 912ul and that installation will fly much better because it is so much lighter and has a geared down prop.  FWIW,  Mark

congrats on the move. I am building almost the same project as you. I am building an HDS tail tragger with a corvair 2700 engine. I have flown in the XL and HDS and both fly nicely. Enjoy the building process.
