Anybody have any experience with a Real World Solutions efi in an EA81. It acts like it is not getting fuel. I've checked everything and I'm just about to give up.

Here's a summary of my three days with the EAA One Week Wonder airplane in central Florida earlier this week.
On Wednesday, we flew by the shortest paved runway (a nice R/C field, just a few hundred feet long) and later that night I had the chance to fly over the longest runway I'd ever seen (NASA's shuttle landing runway at Kennedy Space Center, three miles long!).…Continue
Kind of learning how to use a video editor, much harder than building a plane! Here's a link to the video. Chris Brown STOL 750 Rock House Landing
The flight instruments (namely the artificial horizon) is now being driven by the MPU board (MPU9250 -> Arduino -> iMac).
Eventually all of this will be put together and run on a PCduino with its own screen.
More work to be done. Fun, but slow.

I am spending February on Vancouver Island escaping the bitter cold in southern Ontario. Are there any builders on the Island? I would love to see your project and offer free advice ... or find out you know more than I do and learn from you. I have 600 hours on my 701 since first flying it in March of 2011. You can contact me at email@example.com
Here is a real product to wake up your Rotax 912 80 hp engine.
Failure of the Supercharger simply means you have to fly on the original 80 hp.
I have compiled the following photos and account of Jeff Badgero's recent flight from Florida to Haiti.

I have built two zenith kits in the past. My first one a ch701 was built in1991-1992. It originally was powered by a rotax 582 for about 300 hours. The 582 was replaced with a rotax 914 to give superb performance in the mountains where I live. I have put 1200 hours on the 914 now and I have nothing but good to say about the 701/914 combination. The airframe at 1500 hours is in excellent shape.
My second zenith is a ch801. It is completed and has been flying for about 125 hours…
Started on the Horiz. Stabilizer and just finished cleco-ing the front spar assembly. Logging everything and taking pictures for the final inspectors. Also trying to keep a good track of time spent.

The geese are back,
A few weeks ago the snow geese started to arrive in full force and spread out all over the valley in which I live. This started about five years ago and it seems more and more are joining the fray. Winter wheat planted in fall stands about two inches high at this time of year is tops on the menu. Flocks like the ones shown can destroy a field in one day, it is to the point farmers are planting more corn in place of wheat. Along with some corn my land is planted…Continue
