    I see that now, after blowing up the pic. A great shot! Is Aspen on the backside? If so, would Ajax be on the right side?

    The mountain at the center is backside of Highland Peak. I don't think any ski runs are visible.

    I can see the ski runs in the top left corner. Am I looking at Ajax or The Highlands?

    I watched the last crash in the youtube compilation I just posted again, and I am wondering "why did he crash?" He had the bar pulled in on takeoff. Was the wing set up wrong?

    Lindsay, I think the crash video you are looking for is at the end of this compilation https://youtu.be/mCjctaBMA8g This video shows many ways to crash. A discussion of what went wrong in each case would be a good. A better learning ...

    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.
