    The point is that any engine is a pretty complicated assemblage of moving parts tweaked for a specific purpose. Changing one variable has more than one effect. And if you are making reliability your main goal, you still need gather many thousands of hours of experience on it tuning it to that purpose....

  • Hi Fred, cool trip and congrats on your wife. It doubles the pleasure being able to share it with someone.

    -- Chris.

    P.S.: I hope they are able to setup a new forum soon. Seems a bit paranoid to me to shut down the old French forum but what do I know.... ;)

    Just a remark on Rotax engines. The 912 and 914 each come in a certified and uncertified version. I claim that the market share of certified Rotax engines in the experimental aircraft world is close to zero. Incidentally, both versions are technically identical. It is just the paperwork that's different,...

    One issue that Rotax does differently is the cooling. Rotax engines use a combination of water and air cooling. Traditional aircraft engines use air cooling alone. This poses some challenges with gyros, because they fly slowly and in pusher configuration, which makes air cooling ineffective. I won't...

    Yes, I saw it. Too bad. But he also said that he would start a new forum. On verra.

    I guess you are right: we'll have to donthe job ourselves and meet on the field somewhere.

    Thanks for your help, Fred!

    Thanks Vance, for the kind words. The way you fly to San Luis Obispo or all the other places around Santa Maria is inspiring to me. Similar to you, I have my home routes as well which I enjoy to observe the changes during different times of the year or even different times of day and weather. It enhances...

    Thanks Kai. Yes, the colors seemed out of this world, when I flew. And I try to recreate that impression when I post them.

    Good to hear from you again, Kai. Why not come and visit me once again. It's been a while since the last time....

    Greetings, -- Chris....

    It is nice to meet someone who is familiar with the general area I fly in. What bugs me is that I would like to share the fun of flying over here with some of my gyro-friends on this forum. But getting them to come and visit me here is an obstacle I have so far not found a way to overcome.

    Just a brief fall outing

    The weather was great last weekend and it would have been a sin not to fly. Although I didn't have any great destination in mind I just wanted to take myself for a tour of the area, trying to pretend I hadn't seen these sights many times before. And everytime I fly I encounter something different that...

    If you want to fly as trouble free as possible, go with a Rotax. -- Chris.

    replied to IVO Prop for Cavalon
    I have not had a great experience with the electrical inflight adjustable IVO on my MTO3 and Calidus. The hydraulic constant speed prop on my ArrowCopter, however, is totally trouble free. No electrical problems, no gears, no brushes. It just works. I am using the Rotax recommended governor in conjunction...
