As mine and Robert Broadwells Rotax powered 750 project nears completion. I was wondering how many out there are flying with the 912S?

Thanks for the reply, our weight and speed is almost dead on with yours.
A bit of a late reply
The Australian Demo CH 750 is 912S powered
Weight is 354 Kg (778 lbs)
Cruise speed is 75knts (5000rpm) with a wooden prop Dia 70" pitch 60"
Very happy with the plane and engine
Mike, Ours weighed right at 780 lb, painted and using the Rotax intake box. Used some really good digital scales. I believe others with the 912S were right at the 770 lb. range.
Yes, the spendy air box is in place, went with that because we wanted to have cool air from outside the cowling for the carbs,and also carb heat. If you use the Rotax air intake you will have to modify the one scat hose connection by adding a 45 to clear the left engine tube coming down from the center. I can sent a picture if you like.
Hmm, Fiji, don't know if I feel sorry for you or not.
Hi Bill. I have bought my Rotax 912ULS2. Engine mount in place and ready to install but unfortunately I have to go to Fiji for a few months so it will be May until she is ready to fly.
Cheers and look forward to any pics and install tips.
