:rapture: Dodd, thanks for asking, the Corvanator's finished and running. I have 8 hours training with Ron Menzie. In 3 weeks I'm scheduled for training with Mike Burton in Spanish Fork,UT. Hopefully I'll be ready to solo. The Corvair engine purrs like a kitten, runs smooth as silk.
Consider yourself fortunate j bird .... most of us only hear Corvair engines purr in a car ....

I have come to the conclusion that desirable aviation engines have lots of cubic inches and run at low rpm .

The experimental Corvair engine tries to come close to that.

Best wishes with your training.

Jay, know all about selling the house to pay for gyro dreams.

Have my Kenya home on the market. Getting plenty nibbles, but no bites yet, so dreams on hold right now. But then dreams are cheap.

Enjoy the training.

Thanks guys, I need all the encouragement I can get.
Leigh, it took several years for me to dig myself out of the doldrums, finally prevailed. It sure the hell takes a lot of patience, good luck.

Some thing needs to be taken care of.

:eek: Hey gang, in June (2014) got a few more hours with Mike in Spanish Fork (total 26) when I got home was ready to do some grow hops, doing my pre-flight found some issues I didn't like, long story short, back in shop for a fix, summer's over, just now getting it back together. Hope to get some runway time this Fall.
