    The shipping cost to NY is about $300.
    For any other destination send me your address and I will call the company to find it out.
    EMDO ALT is in feet. This is the panel as I got it.

    Rotax 912A 80hp
    I am accepting offers for this engine which came off an Avid Flyer MKIV with exhaust and accessories. The aircraft was sitting for 3 years in a hangar and fully covered. It has 300 hours and is running great.
    If you need any other information please feel free to contact me.

    Hello people!
    sorry for the long time away but things moving fast here.
    1avidflyer you are right but i have to consider the engine CG to do the maths and the distance deference are not that much. I will send a photo with the carbon fiber tailwheel structure tomorrow that is 1/3 of the weight.
    EDMO This engine output power is more than the indirect competition, it uses a planetary gearbox to reduce the rpm to 2500. As turbine nature it run with many types of fuel as, jet fuel, kerosene, diesel, red diesel, biodiesel etc.
    At this time I am designing the engine mount and need some help with it. How many degrees of down and right thrust your airplanes have? and where is the level point of reference?
    What is the best way to measure that fuselage and wings are straight?
    Thanks

    The engine is approximately 60 pounds and the length is 32in. At this moment I am designing the engine mount and calculate how far the prop will be and the proper angles - line of thrust. The prop is a 3 blades 68in Warp Drive.
     
    and a pic from the progress

    Thank you for your replies,
    I have to consider the weight of the tailwheel because mine is about 7 pounds, so i am thinking to make a carbon or kevlar one. otherwise I will take TJay's offer. At the initial scale measurement i had almost 70 pounds on the tailwheel with empty deployed wings. The new engine is at least 90 pounds lighter that the previous so i have to take as much weight as i can out from the tail of the airplane.
    I am going to adapt your idea 1avidflyer to haul it! Easier and more solid!

    All tips and ideas are welcome! I will keep posting.
    Already am looking for tailwheel replacement. Is any place to order the wing pins and screws?
    The exhaust gasses temperature are well and extensively measured and there is not such a case to damage the fabric. I will keep this in mind and see during the static tests if any other modification will be needed.  
    How I have to hauling it? do i have to fabricate a mount to sits on? do you have any example to get an idea?
    Is here the right place or have to move on another section?

    Hello EDMO,
    The engine is in per-production stage and hopefully it will be released next year. 
    I found and download the building instruction manual for the plane and am going through it. Is something that i have to be more careful or anything that wear more to take care?
    Thanks

    Introduction Project Desciption
    Hello Everybody,
    I am from Greece and i just purchased a used Avid Flyer Mark 4. I am about to strip down the fuselage and inspect the wind for any damages and wear. I concern for the screws, bolt and pins, especially those which hold the wings in-place. The aircraft is equipped with a Rotax 912 (80hp) but probably i will sell it out. The main idea is to fit a Turboprop on it and run some tests. I will appreciate to have some tips from experience people on this plane.
    Thanks
