Woot has the Onyx M-33 Manual Inflatable life vest on sale for $75. I paid $120 for mine so it's a pretty good deal. Just FYI

    Walt, would that calculation have a conversion correction of 1.85 cool factor? It sure should! I think this is one of those cases where someone does something cuz it's badass instead of making "the most practical sense". Kind of like a 1000Hp ...

    The GTE with BMW1150 combo will be a bit ass end heavy when done but not so much as to create a problem. A French ULA club flew one for many years but it was a custom engine bracket for that one too. It won't be a perfect combination (the 582 is a ...

    It sounds like the whole engine assembly is kept straight at 0 degrees, relative to inline with the trike chassis but off to the right by 3/4in. A parallel thrust line offset to the right of trike chassis centerline by 3/4in. Did I get that right ...

    This is making much more sense now and with all this sage input I believe we should put in the 3/4in offset Leo. It sounds like it's going to need it as I do have a relatively high 3:1 ratio on a torque heavy engine. Sold!

    BTW, my intent is to use the 4 bladed Arplast off my 582 setup so that means the offset will be needed more as I believe more blades increases the need right?

    Seriously thanks guys! This is some good stuff and much needed. The Air Creation chassis mount (very similar to a Tanarg) that mates to the engine bracket gives us some good options and incorporates vibration isolation as well. It gives us a good ...

    Philip, I've learned a lot so far on this BMW project option but I can only speak from a R1150 engine version perspective (80hp). Gregg's is a R1200 and that is an entirely different beast. I also drive a R1150R motorcycle so that helps me know them ...

    Really cool Gregg! My GTE repower with a R1150 starts this weekend with pulling my old 582 grey head off.

    "Scott Williams" commented on Paul Hamilton's Blog "Trike engine reliability. Are they all equal?".
    IMHO, Rotax has two pretty serious issues to deal with that would go a very long way. #1 the carb floats not floating from saturation and the new mech fuel pumps failure rate. The older ones where much more reliable. Both of these are not Rotax ...

    Great review Larry and thanks for your time spent. Wing stability and ease of control is number 1 on my list of must haves. Also why I'm eyeing your new X wing so intently. Very good to hear other companies have tamed some of their old designs to ...

    Wow Larry! I'm really impressed by your new X wing. Love the stats and I need to make a visit out to see you guys and give it a go. The Revolt with an X wing is right in the sweet spot of where and how I like to fly.

    This is very true Doug! I've never done the instructor seat flying before but I've thought about getting some time back there with one of you CFI types. Would be an interesting difference!

    Larry, that Revolt passenger view is what is intriguing my wife. She has a nice back seat for comfort in the Tanarg but especially with my helmet on she dislikes the lack of a view. I’m 6'4" tall so it really does impact the enjoyment factor. ...
