    Yes, yes and yes! Right now, standards are all I have but Carrillo is able to make my pistons with oversize diameters. The DP-1 kit is going to include Superior ring sets with the Carrillo forged pistons so they should make them for chrome. Balance changes should be un-noticeable from std to .015 overs. Good questions! Thanks for asking.

    Me too VB! Harry Hackney threw the keys to his little green RV-3 at me back in the day here at Shafter. That experience was right up there with my first #####!

    I definitely plan to keep my RV-3 as long as I can legally fly it. It is a great airplane and with a 0235 C-1 engine of 108hp
    Cruises at 160mph.

    WOW !!!

    Pete asked if I would be kind enough to post these photos here. He's just returning from a trip to one of the parts manufacturers.

    The first picture shows a large number of crankshafts that were prototypes, metallurgy test specimens, machining proofs, casting proofs, "austempering" proofs, and dimensional tolerance proofs. These are the rejects that were not good enough. Revisions Zero, A, B, and C.

    The next picture is the ten Revision D "Beta Test" cranks that incorporate all the development and redesign/upgrades over the years. These are finally the ones that will go into flight test and "launch customer" engines.

    Those of you who may have not fully grasped just how big of a project it is to develop a "partially new" aircraft powerplant, know that each small batch of 2 or 3 of those "unusable" prototypes were designed, re-designed, tested, measured, and evaluated individually...... then the next batch was made to incorporate the changes or improvements. The flight test engine will use one of the cranks in the second photo.

    Another news item is that the airplane is ready for final assembly. Pete is looking good for starting flight test in the next 30 to 60 days.

    OH GREAT......now I've gone & salivated all over my keyboard (again)

    Fantastic news. I can't wait for Sun-N-Fun. Guess I better get busy on the Hiperlight.

    We do expect video's of the first Pegasus Powered Crackerjack flight test.

    Re: O-100-- interesting new engine

    Thats quality control. Its thrown away the big 1/2 vw conversion vibe; looks like it will be a developed engine.

    Please elaborate on what you mean. What vibe would that be?

    Home made vs professional. That is as close a certified engine attempt as one could make on the type of budget. No need to defend the 1/2 VW,; you have read 100s of my posts that like them. Im just noting something above that level, and I was skeptical first, if you want to go back to front of this thread. .

    I am not defending anything. I just asked a question what was meant by this statement. By the comment we are saying this engine will be better then a big 1/2 vw. This engine could fall under the same principles as the 1/2 vw. I do like this engine and hope it goes as planned. But to claim this will work better then what has been found to work on other engines. Well the proof is in the pudding. Once the pudding is made lets see if it holds up. Until then its all wishful thinking. I am with those who hope this does perform better then the vw. Again I am not knocking nor defending any engine. Just making a comment.

    Also how can you call a 1/2 vw homemade? Mine was built in a shop by an engine company. That would be Hummel Engines.

    Re: O-100-- interesting new engine

    Yes you are. Here is a pic I just took of a NEW Casler 37 hp 1/2 VW full case; sorry for the bad pic, just took it. It is a good job done. It is not custom airplane crank and what other going into the O-100. it is an apples and oranges discussion. O-100 is a different league. Does not mean the 1/2 is getting replaced for its intended job .

    I am not knocking or defending anything and just made a comment. That crank going into this engine also is not a certified part. Stop being a hater.
