Online Community of Zenith Builders and Flyers
Finally we have reached the point where we consider that we have expressed how we have established our fuel system for the 912iS in our test bed CH701. No, it does not contain all that we wanted to, but we feel that it conveys the points about what we have done, why we have done it and what we would prefer to do.
We LOVE LOVE LOVE the engine and the airframe combination. It is a great airframe and a great engine. A marriage of heavenly proportions, for us and what we use our aircraft for, at least!
It is not a short document... 14 pages long... but it does make great bedtime reading for those who are interested. It demonstrates what we found, and how we approached it. It does not contain some of the other things we tested, that relate to ALL the Zenith Aircraft, in relation to the 'fuel tanks levels' - which I can assure everybody are fantastically good and very well balanced, even if there are many comments about them not being (but that is another set of pages and calculations!)
In the meantime, if you are considering installing a Fuel Injected Engine, whether it is Rotax or Viking or UL or any other, please be safe, think about what you want to do, and make sure that you follow the engine manufacturers guidelines... in the mean time, enjoy this bedtime reading...
