    I am looking for information and pictures of the water intercooler of the Revo Trike. Is the intercooler laying horizontal? Is this system working pretty well, or are their problems in hot conditions days?

      Larry Mednick Hi Christoph, yes the REVOS uses a horizontal radiator and also horizontal oil cooler. It uses a sealed air box which is ram air during flight. So the radiator is the only exit.

      Larry Mednick When the 912iS Sport came out the cooling system was not enough. So we increased the size of the radiator 20% and the additional cooling was quite sufficient.

      Christoph Wehrmann What is the reason the 912iS needs more cooling? I also have bought a 912iS for the project.Would you please sent me some pictures of the Revo 912iS cooling system

      Abid Farooqui It runs more lean via fuel injection ECU mapping

      Larry Mednick It runs hotter due to using paper gaskets between the cylinder and the intake manifold. The intake manifold is an amazing heat sink on the ULS with all that evaporating fuel and aluminum. The iS sport keeps the intake cool to keep the injectors cool. Therefore you loose the heat sink in the motor and it requires more cooling from the radiator.

      Glade Montgomery I have the first Revo with 912iS (probably the first trike in the world with 912IS), and I can easily certify the cooling is superb. There has never been the slightest issue in its regard. Yes, the temeperature can climb excessively if I idle while stationary for a long time, but I believe that's to be expected with any airplane.

    what happens when you loosen up the Velcro straps inside the wing
    some or what happens when you tighten them

    for some reason it wants to turn right 12.5

    Hi all. I've got an XT 912 that's not been pampered, and after 1056 hours the sail has finally failed a bettsometer test. I'm casting around for a modern replacement wing, and the Sport 12.5 looks appealing. I'm curious about others' perspectives on this wing - handling, longevity of the sail, and how it performs on an 80 hp base. I'm not interested in a manufacturers' flame war, but reasoned comparisons of the wing and how it compares with other manufacturers' offerings on an 80 hp base would be much, much appreciated, especially if anyone has tried an XT/Reflex combination. Cheers!

    Anyone know of a company that makes fitted travel or light weight body and engine covers for the Revo?

    page 22 of the reflex series wing manual states
    "8. Flight Limitations
    Operations and limitation for the Reflex series wing on the Light Sport Aircraft such as the Revo
    is available in the POH manual. The wing performance placard bearing test flight information
    and operating limits is located on the wing’s left cross tubes. Special care should be taken to
    note the operating limitations, which are clearly stated on the flight operation placard"
    does anyone have this placard on their Revo? can you take a picture of it? my wing does not have it.

    Larry/Abid,
    Over the years I have had numerous engine outs. Mainly bad fuel in Africa. With slower wings, always found a place to land. No I know engine reliability has improved dramatically but slow flight performance and short landings always a safety factor when flying. So much focus on speed nowadays whic has its uses but how do Revos perform on short landings

    Mark my words each one of you, one day, I will have a "Revo"...I don't know when that might be, but it will happen. I have seen many pictures and videos of this trike and all I gotta say "me like" LOL.

    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.
