  3. Yamma-Fox added a post in a topic Yamaha Apex Skytrax Adapters   

    EDGE PERFORMANCE is about to spin up this gearbox on their 300 HP Aviation Apex.
    This be an awesome test to prove out the entire setup, check for any weak links, and see if there is anything that needs beefing up or limits that need to be set.
    The last 2 pics are physical comparisons of the Apex and the EP Rotax 912

    The water coming out of the engine (Thermostat side) should be where you pull the fluid going into heat exchanger. The water will be the warmest at them point. If you pull fluid from the water pump side you will have cooler liquid going into the heat exchanger because its already been cooled some through the radiators. I had a guy tell me that he could cool his engine temps on warm days by turning on his fan inside the cockpit. I use to do this in an old truck I had. You didn't want to be inside the cab but the engine was happy.

    Hey Jim, if looking at the registration this would be in the UK (Great Britain/England).... I would say plenty of power to pull that glider into the wide blue sky  Probably a rotax 912ULS under the hood.

    Kitfox plane doing glider tow
    Wonder if this is a Kitfox or Eurofox.  Seemed to work though, dispite the title.  What country I wonder as well.  JImChuk

    You know, you can’t replace weight with hp. Though there is a simoni v2 for sale that’ll be the ticket

    458 isn't bad, I could live with that. Since I am 140 and fly mostly by myself anymore it should do good with 55 HP. Not many out there with smaller engines, most are 582's and up. A quick handling,light, machine is a blast to fly.

    It can be done Allen. I didn’t try too hard and ended up with 458.

    All figures show it will work fine, but then a Kitfox can't read or add. Don't laugh but I am shooting for around 430-450 empty weight. I think it can be done.  But, we'll see!

  24. nlappos added a post in a topic Looking for Transponder advice   

    Double, just be sure that you understand, you cannot fly within 30nm of any Class B airspace like SLC without a Mode c transponder (see the red circle on the sectional piece below) , and after July 2020, you can't enter any class C airspace or Class B airspace without ADS-B out capability. Stay tuned we are all in the same boat. I installed an old EDO mode c transponder from Ebay with an encoder and am reasonably compliant today.

    Haha thanks guys. I'll be spending the money on a small in panel radio or an MGL engine monitor.
