Hi Jon videos arrived yesterday think the 0-200 runout is what I will go for anything below 8000 is a bargain because thats what continental charge for a crank case, saw a freshly overhauled example in UK GA classifieds for £8000, and crankcase on ebay for $2000,plus I have the manuals rummaging around on the net,what cruise speed do you get with your 0-200 cruzer , I picked the standard ch750 STOL because I thought with the 100hp engine I can get - afford there would not be much difference in cruise,Jan over at viking alludes to this on his site.Go hi tech with viking or rotax and get thru 15 litres an hour get an 0-200 and go thru 20 litres an hr, It probably is the best choice for me, brewing my own auto conversion magnifies all the problems, bespoke FWF parts, the mount aligning it, the carb, the ECU, the redrive/PSRU in the too hard basket, however should I win the lottery I will go with this :) http://flyrotax.com/produkte/detail/rotax-915-is-isc.html
Jon, Thanks for the video on the 0-200 int. , it has been a great help for me. I need your help on locating heater control flange that goes through the firewall. Zenair showes one on their 0-200 firewall forward kit, but want sell individual parts. Thanks for your help. Max
Yes I will keep you posted, we got rid of the dual alternator thanks to Robert Helms, we are still seeking advice and help on wiring, the MGL system is close and we are very close to engine start, paint and phase1. Thanks, Art
It was sure nice to meet you in person at Can-Zac last week. Your video was very helpful in building my rudder in a little under 9 hours!!
I watched the video very carefully then cross checked the dimensions with the plans and started building.. it was really helpful.
Continue your great work!
Yes life is good down here. As I posted to the site, my wife Marita graced me with her company yesterday for a brief flight... sort of an orientation flight for her. We look forward to short one day or overnight trips as the schedule and weather permit. Good luck with your test flights and hopefully there will be unexpected breaks in the weather for you.
Just wanted you to know the good news... I finished the forty hours today and I'm looking forward to fly-ins, airshows, and pancake breakfasts around the state. I also hope to visit some builders who are in neighboring states within reach. Rest assured, vigilance and continued tweaking are still on the agenda.
