I have had mine installed for about 6 months and have done about 40 hours since then. I know around 6 people who have them including avMagni local agent with no issues. They are a French company and as far as I know still in operation. If I find out more I will post!!Well, here it is some 3.5 months since I last posted above and have not heard one word from this company.
I sent (one last) email again yesterday when this thread was reopened. I will post if/when I get a reply.
Fingers crossed.....Philip, how long have you been operating your Magni with this product and how do you
communicate with the company? Perhaps their email isn't working or something is wrong.
If this is such a great thing, why aren't there many more of them in operation and why haven't I heard of them until
the start of this thread? I know of no one in the USA who has talked about this item, yet alone used one..... Just me??
Sorry to be sceptical but all the indicators are setting off my alarm bells. Til we know more......
Hi GregI had access to this device while working with the DTA in Nepal, the flying at Heli Air Nepal in the Himalayas brings extreme conditions to any gyro
That said I removed it and suggested as Rotax don't approve it it can't be of any good value, all it does it it fools the TCU and iMO it simply over boost the engine, the 914 is a pressed crank and one really does not want to over stress it.
If Rotax Austria thought one could get more than 5 mins boost or.more power with a plug in dongle for very little investment I'm sure they would?
My opinion don't touch it ! A Rotax is Avery well made machine and very expensive built by some very clever people.
Yes but if you boost beyond the engine limits you are placing a huge stress on the crank, the gearbox components and other ...the devise fits in line with the air box scensor, it fools the OEM Turbo Control Unit and in effect let's one boost higher than normal in a certain altitude (DA) conditions, it also lets one boost longer than the max of 5 minutes as recommended by RotaxAs I have posted before, quite a few guys in Switzerland fly with them and I have not heard of any issues with the engine, don’t forget it only works when Turbo is engaged and that is typically around 3minutes a flight i.e. on take off to 300ft or so, yes it boosts the map pressure but does not over rev the engine.
Well we agree to disagree?Sorry to disagree with you! To date Gyroperfo have 300 of these installed without one incident, including French National Railways flying 3 machines. It is worth noting that the Rotax 915 which is based on the 912 as is the 914 but with a slightly larger bore, injection and turbo has a max MAP of 51, my 914 max is 42. And yes it does cut out when the turbo cuts out after 5 mins. As regards to talking to Gyroperfo as mentioned in a previous post, I just spoke to them, they picked up on the 2nd ring and were extremely helpful BUT you need to be able to speak French!
