Roger. My iS burns about 7.5L/h at 105 kmh, 15L/h @ 140kmh & 19L/h @ 160kmh with 2 passengers. If I am making takeoff and landings in the pattern up to 125kmh I will burn 21 L/h

    Marsha wants me to remind you that it is just a tiny little engine and can't be as reliable as that big 912iS.

    It looks like it has been a long time since you posted a video. I hope you use your talent more often. Anyone would give it an A+ for creative and entertaining. Agreed. Wear glasses.

      Roger Bunny I am interested to know what fuel burn rate do people use for their Flight Planning for a Cross Country Flight. This takes into account warm up, run up, taxi, climb to cruising elevation then descent etc. I use 15l/hr with my Revo Competition wing and generally plan to cruise at 70 knots. I don't bother to break the fuel burn down for each different component of the flight.

      Roger Bunny I don't even bother to try and calculate fuel burn for different legs. I keep a record of all fuel that I put in the trike and divide this by the engine hours. I have now done over 210 hrs with the competition wing and the fuel burn is averaging 15l/hr. So I use 15l/hr for all my flight planning. As a general rule what fuel burn do you use for you flight planning across country?

      Tony Castillo P&M GTR / 912S / 2 People up, trimmed to 113 Kmh (70mph) - 13.5l/hr (3gal/hr) and 3,800 rpm at 16 degree pitch. 17 Gal Fuel Tank. If trim a bit faster the RPM go a bit higher and also the fuel used. If only one pilot (no passenger) lower weight and makes some difference in the fuel used.

    "Wesley Frey" commented on Todd Ware's Blog "To miro filter gas station fuel or not?".
    Hi Todd, Obviously safer to filter. I carry 5 gal tanks with non-ethanol car gas, in my car trunk with screens in the pour spout and twist cap on the end. I do inspect the tans regularly, but careful protection of the tanks from bugs, rain and ...

    Bringing in the REV high and long at Oshkosh. This 1100 foot runway is waaaaay longer than it needs to be for the REV. Shown here we held 300 feet until midfield and then dove in and stopped short

    I absolutely love REV, but I don't think that it is a fair competition. A single surface high lift REV wing vs a two seat faster double surface wing Revo or Airborne...but then again I would prefer a slow high lift wing trike over faster ones anyday ...

    Hi Wes, Thanks for the DVD, love it, for a new person into this with only 26hours on the clock and just purchased my own Airborne 912, I am loving what I am doing. Larry's DVD is excellent it arrived in Australia today 5/1/11 and I started to watch straight away, some great tips that reinforce what my CFI is telling me and some that I am not aware of, little bit more advanced but thanks it is a great help, cheers from Oz. Eric

    Wes congrats by the way on getting your CFI!! have flown over 200 hrs out here on the island in 4 1/2 months. That is quite a bit. Learning constantly. Not a day goes by without it. When does your revo arrive? And please let me know how the 12.5 meter reflex works out for you! That little 11 sure is responsive, but i am glad to have it with the kind of conditions I have to deal with! Aloha tell Marsha I said hello. Fly safe
