    Surprised you're having problems. I had an A6 I used in my cub (no electrical system) and flew across the country with it. I would recharge it at night and be good for the day.

    Hi Randy,
    Do the cuffs improve the performance? If so in what direction better cruise speed or lower stall speed?
    Best,

    Hi John,
    How are you doing? Does the above message mean you are no longer interested in my main gear? Let me know.

    I sold my nose gear to John. He was talking about buying the main gear as well but I have not heard back about that. I did pass Johns email address to Christian.

    Rotec
    Has anyone flown a kitfox or an avid with a rotec 2800 radial? Seems like a lot of weight up front. I look forward to hearing.

    I saw Doc Bailey the dealer in Florida about a year ago. He ran the motor for me and the 4 stroke is nice an smooth. HP is 93 at 3100 rpm and an installed weight of 125 lbs. Just saw they reduced the price to $15,900.

  13. Goldendale-flyer added a post in a topic Avid Mk IV HH kit   

    This is HH with Stol wings. Tanks are there for both wings. The guy I bought it from removed the original tanks to replace them with the newer tanks. There is a brush gear as sold by Brett. Also a tail wheel. There is no fwf components other than the cowling. It does have the 16" stretch. The wings have been on it, the tail will bolt right on. That's about it. covering material is there but the chemicals are pretty old.

    Avid Mk IV HH kit
    Avid MK IV HH kit with the 16" stretch. I bought this about a year ago. I have purchased a bush landing gear from Brett along with a tail wheel. The short story is I am still building my house and need the money to keep going. Be happy to send photos on request. The kit is located in Goldendale WA. Asking $9,500 or best offer.

    Hi Mark,
     
    Are you still working on your Bearhawk Patrol? Are you building from scratch or working from a welded kit?

    Hi Dholly,
     
    I have the Avid Mk IV drawings as well. I would like a copy of the KF IV drawing.

    Hi Jim,
    They sent me drawings for an Avid motor mount. The mount they sent did not match the drawing, and I am assuming it was for a KF IV

    Hi Rob,
     
    I did call Jabiru USA when researching and buying the engine mount. They sent me their drawing which I could check against the aircraft. What they sent did not match the drawing and I suspect actually was for a Kitfox IV. I am going to research doing my own mount, so a second would be no big deal. I will get back to you in couple weeks.
     
    Best regards,

    I contacted Jabiru USA for an engine mount. They said they had one and sent it out. Did not match the plane or the drawing. Took them about 2 months to arrange for an RMA and refund. I may jig up and build one. Did you come up with a source.

    Should we be having a conversation about boundary layer? Same reason the scoop on a P51 is a way from the fuselage.

  24. Goldendale-flyer added a post in a topic Simonini Victor 2   

    Well that thread degenerated quickly. I am currently looking for a 4 stroke engine that will deliver 100 hp. I am not opposed to trying something different, but I want to fly not tinker. Weight is a big deal. The viking engine looks good but it is heavy. What does a rotax 912uls really weigh installed? I mean radiator, coolant, oil, exhaust, everything.
