Hey fellow Builders & Fliers,
Who all has a Viking 130....? Which airframe...? Where are you based...?
I am installing a Viking 130 as part of a rebuild of my Zodiac. I'm based at Bourland Field, which is southwest of Ft Worth, Texas.
I have a Viking 130 that is not yet hung on my 601xlb project. Will start to install it very soon. I am in Blakely, Ga. and watching your progress. How did you vent your mini header tank?
Our STOL 750 with Viking 130 should be airborne this summer. https://www.facebook.com/Experimental750ES/ We're in Anchorage, Alaska.
Have 85 hours 0n my Viking 130 powered 601 xlb and it is hangared at Gimlin airport 18MO near Ozark, MO, Always open for a visit at hangar #9. Gathering data to decide to ipaint or wrap the old girl.
sorry; not using a Viking nor a 601, but just wanted to say that I’m up in NRH building a Cruzer.
Always good to to find other local builders.
Hi Patrick, Have the earlier Viking 110. Should have the engine running in Feb. I just got my ECU upgraded with new software by Jan. Also adding the reinforcement for alternator pivot bolt and 5/8"ID oil inlet hose. I realize that none of these mods apply to the 130.
Best Regards, Larry Zepp

Interested in the 110 for my CH701....not much info on the Viking website.....what is installed weight....price...etc ?
She can probably answer all those questions in 1 email, assuming she still works there.
My 750 cruzer is in the finishing stage. I think that means it is only 10% complete. I have a Viking 130 installed, but I have not yet wired anything. It is still nice to look at!
I've got a Viking 110 in my 601 XLB with about 40 hobbs hours on it and could not be happier with it.
I added a shared spreadsheet for Engine Experience etc.
Please update it with your Viking Experience also. Thanks. Link provided below.
I will be keeping an eye on this one. I plan to purchase the viking once I pay off the cost of getting my Private Pilot cert.
Patrick, I am in Central Texas probably 2 hours from you. I might visit you sometime to check out your setup, if that's cool? I visit my sister in Murphy Texas frequently. My brother-in-law is cleaning up my 1966 Chevy Corvair, but no I decided not to go Corvair...
I am building a Cruzer and have the Viking 130 hung, plumbed, and wired. I have started it a few times. Should be flying this summer. I'm building in Garfield, Arkansas and will base in Rogers, AR (KROG). My build log is at http://www.mykitlog.com/sbray72732
