    The songs are called "Meridian (day)" and "Meridian (night)" from a video game called Horizon Zero Dawn. You can find the songs on YouTube. Half my videos have video game soundtracks. The other half are from movies.

    Thanks Larry. I always try to milk the glide for as long as possible before setting down. Frank, I had to get a special mount for the case. I'll show you at Angel Fire. Roger, I fly between 50 and 60 mph. Usually 60 when it is kinda tricky near ...

    Great area to fly. What actual speed ranges are you capable of with that wing. What speeds do you like to fly at for the major part of your flights?

    Nice video Jeff. Looks like you guys have a vertical mount to drop the GoPro down. How did you do that. Guess I'll see you at Angel Fire next week and find out.

    4:52 another great example of a great landing with full bar out and continuing to fly the nose wheel in obvious mid day air with plenty of convection. Well Done Jeff!

    Jeff, that is another phenomenal video. You have a nice rugged trike and I enjoyed your landings on those dirt strips. Amazing video. I am going to play this at our hangar to show it to my fellow pilots :)

    I never met him, but from his on-line presence he seemed to be a great guy and huge asset to our sport. My deepest condolences to his family and friends.

    Rizwan,
    My Aerotrike Cobra originally had a Rotax 503 on it. I flew it without any problems for 275hrs. I wanted something with more power, and a less frequent overhaul schedule. I initially looked into putting an HKS on it, but was dissuaded by several experienced trike pilots who said I would waste a lot of time and money in rigging an engine mount for it.

    Aerotrike offered a 912 kit that made the task much simpler. It included a new engine mount, exhaust system, throttle and choke cables and splitters, plumbing, carbheat kit, and lots of mounting brackets.

    I bought the engine separately. Bought a DVD on how to install a Rotax 912 engine and spent 4 months working on it in my garage. It was a tough job.

    One advantage of putting the 912 on is that I know that trike and engine inside and out, and since I plan to keep flying if for a long time, I can do a better job at maintaining it.

    If you look on my webpage, www.jeffsflightlog.com and go to the year 2006 and pull up the flightlog "2009/09/25 Supertrike" to read more of the details.

    Jeff, you said that you installed a 912 on your trike by yourself. Was it a 582 trike before? My friend Tom flies an Aerotrike cobra that has a 582 in it. I learned to fly on it..Awesome trike. But my question was did you convert a 582 trike to 912? How did you do it? Did you have custom made mounts? If you could educate me a bit, I would be very thankful to you.

    Jeff:
    I can't remember the name of the trike, but it came from Russia thru Cananda and it is for sale. We have an EAA chapter flyin there next Saturday and I will write it down. It is advertised on Barnstormers.
