    Non- Biased Engine Reviews -Viking

    Yes, Jan did offer input to the issue. He recommended a larger input. This was not a simple fix as there would be major cowl changes. I was going to do it but fate stepped in and made me change it sooner rather than later.

    Non- Biased Engine Reviews -Viking

    Billski, I can't argue with your logic. You are the data analyst, not me. We will just have to see what data surfaces and determine what that data shows. Also please understand this engine is in a Wittman Tailwind and not the Zenith. So any mods needed were done on my own. Of course I knew...

    Non- Biased Engine Reviews -Viking

    Billski, The only data you have , at least in my case, is ONE engine failure and ZERO PSRU failures. The engine failure was my fault, not Viking. You are correct in your need for data, I certainly don't dispute that. But please don't cloud the picture with content like above. For someone...

    Non- Biased Engine Reviews -Viking

    Well Billski, I think the process is working well when product improvements are pushed out to the customer. My thoughts regarding your comments are that your sliding down a slippery slope of conjecture. You have no idea of the "defects" or corrective actions. You are making the assumption that 2...

    Non- Biased Engine Reviews -Viking

    Perhaps I was not clear in my previous comments. The engine change was due to a fault of mine, I did not upgrade to the larger inter-cooler although it was available. I was waiting for delivery of the new unit and decided to continue flight testing. I then upgraded to the larger engine and...

    Non- Biased Engine Reviews -Viking

    Just have to point out the engine problem was mine, the PSRU changes were for product improvements that Jan made and were at no cost to me. There were no problems encountered with the PSRU, only improvements to the product. As I stated before, he has really provided me with outstanding support...

    Non- Biased Engine Reviews -Viking

    Yes Vigilant, I did have an engine malfunction. No, it was not reported as a failure. No need to. It was a partial failure, could not maintain max power so take-off was aborted. The failure was my fault and not the engine. Thus I can't pass the blame on to Viking. I will say that Viking stood by...

    Non- Biased Engine Reviews -Viking

    I just ran across this posting and after reviewing the comments versus the title “Non- Biased Engine Reviews -Viking”, I decided it was time to offer my review of Viking. One of the major problems I have with the previous posting content is that 99% is opinion and conjecture with no basis ...

    Falconar SAL Mustang

    The SAL plans are an all wood design. Take that into account. The original design was for the Ranger engine but most newer builds used the Chevy V8. I sold the SAL I had long time ago. Still have the plans. They are probably the best detailed plans you will ever get for a plans built plane. I...

    Any Tailwind owners / pilots?

    Way too heavy, not to mention the weight he put on with the fiberglass fuselage covering. Putting in the Honda 1.5L Turbo and cleaning up the plane I saved over 300 lbs. Drop by and take a look at it sometime. Just getting ready to start flying it again. I have one more issue to finish, putting...

    Any Tailwind owners / pilots?

    Yes, same plane. I rebuilt it from frame up. Weighs a few hundred pounds lighter and the engine runs.... Honda 1.5L Turbo. Now on 2nd engine as I blew up the first on take-off.

    EMS module for tablet?

    Take a look at experimentalavionics.com They have an EMS unit and display that might interest you. I have this unit and it is very close to what you might like. Easy to put together and code is already there. You can modify as you like. I changed my code to take info from the engine's CAN bus...
