by Ted Hunting 1 year agoFor anyone looking for an amazing new Apollo machine, I highly recommend Silverlight Aviation's DeltaJet 2 from Abid's Silverlight Aviation/Todd Halver of Papatangoaviation.com Just got it an absolutely top of the line machine. Super high quality, engineering, every option you could want and unbeatable value for top end trike.
Thanks for all the support on my trike purchase. I have another question? Because of the way my trike is built the discharge strap on my BRS had melt marks in two places. I only found this when removing the canister for repack. Thinking through the solution I'm going to do some rerouting and cover the strap with Aeroquip firesleeve. Has anybody used this to cover the strap as it goes close to headed areas? (muffler, cooling hoes etc.) MIke
Can any body tell me what the Apollo Jet star AS 11 uses for a back support. There is just nothing there!!! It's no wonder the fellow I bought it from had troubles learning to fly. Any help would be appreciated. Mike
Now that I have a Apollo Jet Star AS 11 I would like to talk to other triker's That have my model. need to have some questions answered concerning the routing of the BRS strap?
by Abid Farooqui 5 years agoby Abid Farooqui Rotax has released a mandatory bulletin for 912 and 914 series engines: SB-912-058-UL
Due to a deviation in the hardening process, certain washers may have excessive hardness. This deviation could cause the washer to crack and could cause loosening of the flywheel, ignition failure or engine damage. Note that washers part number 944072 delivered as spare parts are not affected. The bulletin covers specific inspection and replacement instructions for full compliance.
by Ryan McAnarney 6 years agoHey guys what up? Just wanting t say whats up to all of you.Conditions have been smoking out here this last week and there hasn't been much flying going on!! I don't think a day has gone by since ive been back that at some point it wasnt gusting high 20's to low 30's. Had an interesting safety meeting with the FAA the other day, and it was actually a good positive experience. They got all of the trike pilots on Kauai together to talk about safety issues and how to better ourselves. Am hoping that it helps with some of the intrapersonal relationships outhere with everyone. If you go online to "Bigskykauai.com" you will see pics of the DJ with my electric green and blue 11 meter, "Larrys old one". That wing is really perfect for these breezy conditions. Aloha guys Ryno
Paul Hamilton is now flying a S-LSA 582 Monsoon in Nevada. Sean you should invite Paul to join this group.
Keep an eye out for next months "Light Sport and Ultralight Flying" magazine
Revo is going to be on the cover and a full report card on it by Dan Johnson
Ryan McAnarney is now a WSC FAA SP-CFI and flying his Delta Jet 912 with an earlier version of Reflex-11 wing in Hawaii
Magdi, I was kidding. Don't be so serious :).
Dan Johnson flew the Revo 912S with Reflex 11 wing at Sun N Fun and just finished articles about it for Ultraflight and Sport flying magazine.
I can only give out some glimpses:
“I saw closer to 110 mph at one point and I can say this is the fastest I’ve ever flown in a trike.”
“As with most of Revo, form follows function; things work well but they also look good.”
“Revo is a visual treat thanks to its innovative design and stunning machine work.”
The more I examined Revo and then flew with Larry Mednick of Evolution (and Tampabay Aerosports), I realized even Air Creation’s beautiful Tanarg had been done one better.
Plus, let me add that Evolution Trikes offers a 13-meter wing that is much more suitable to newer trike pilots plus a 15-meter single surface wing for those who want to explore slower speed trike flying.)
We went slow (less than 50 mph) and we blazed past 100 mph indicated. I expected to need the full face helmet Larry offered but, truthfully, wind blast wasn’t bad.
This open cockpit aircraft has “cabin” heat and it works
While I didn’t measure 45-to-45 degree roll reversals, it’s clear that Reflex 11 has one of the fastest roll rates among weight-shift LSA, which translates to the pilot needing to make only small inputs to achieve a desired bank angle. It also means you can maintain control in rougher flying weather.
The rest I guess you will have to wait and see in the magazine
