Thanks for the videos John, that guy is amazing!Jazzenjohn;n1122997 said:Suburu EJ-22 motor, 20% power to the rotor. Differential thrust to handle the torque. Very quiet. Brilliant design and excellent craftsmanship (as everyone would expect). I believe it won Grand Champion at Mentone this year..
Dick told me shafts and helical gears power the propellers Rick. They are counter rotating and are not pitched the same.Roundwing;n1123049 said:Good looking machine.
It looks like it has counterrotating propellers.
That would help to manage torque.
What powers the propellers? Belts? Chains? Driveshafts?
It was my recollection of what I saw, I don't remember well and I didn't get a good look at the engine. I may be confusing it with Dick's other single place jump takeoff gyroplane where the engine is easier to see.Jazzenjohn;n1124518 said:Vance Breese has mentioned that it looked to him like a SOHC engine such as an ea-82 (or?), instead of an ej-22 like I thought. Vance knows far more about engines than I do.
