  1. lv2plyguitar added a post in a topic Sabaru vs Rotax 912 UL   

    I replaced my 582 with a 912 uls.  The 582 had a lot more weight in terms of mounts and stuff than the 912.  The 912 is a cleaner install.  When I picked up the 582 off the ground with everything attached firewall forward it felt heavier than the 912 firewall wall forward.  My CG did not change.  I recently purchased the zipper kit and that decreases the 912 weight by 4 lbs as well.

    I just upgraded to the Zipper Kit and have the original rotax 912 ULS cylinders, pistons, piston pins, and rings for sale.  1,800 obo.  600 hrs.  Still see the hash marks in cylinders.

    In my opinion you can’t have to much power. Don’t know the cost but added power will save you in certain circumstances.

    I bought a used garmin 795 $1000 and a used gdl 39  $800.  That combo provides adsb transmit and receive. Any one else flying with a Adsb shows up on my garmin 795. Pretty cool to watch. I was flying a few days ago and did not see traffick headed toward me at 90 degrees until my garmin alerted me to their presence. I looked to my left, saw the plane coming. The garmin even shows their altitude. Adsb will help prevent collisions. We just had a midair collision death a few weeks back so I enjoy the added safety of Adsb

    A gopro hero 3+ or newer will blue tooth to your cell phone and you can see the video real time if you have a smart phone.

    Bush Trimming Alaska Style
    Me and Super Avid Randy had a great time flying the Skewtna River this weekend.  Did some challenging landings.  On one landing I shaved the bushes pretty good to make it easier for the next pilot LOL.

    If its flying and in good shape $8,500 seems like a good point to start.

    The sube is very heavy.  The plane itself has more shoulder room than a kitfox or avid.   I had one in my garage for a while to finish building but never had the time so I sold it.  A company in Canada still provides parts.
