    Idea.. what airplane's

    I think it would put out the HP but it might not do so well in the weight category though the 420cc engine is a hefty 73lbs stock..

    I can strip one down if you guys like and weigh it.

    Idea.. what airplane's

    I might do some looking into a stripped 420CC engine as there is a list of things it really don't need on it and might come in close to what would be needed

    Tri motor would be neat but you could only doing that with the 212s anything else other then a 2 stroke would be to heavy.

    idea

    so i am going to toss this out here.. could a person mod something like the legal eagle to take twin engines? pushing them out on the wing. if one could keep the weight and balance? idea might be for HP use a engine that is rated for 15HP normal but be able to push it threw a gate for a extra...

    idea

    i would like to find something that is Part 103 that can be flown on a budget.. i was watching videos on youtube the otherday and say some kinda 4 engine ultralight with floats flying and it got me thinking.. smaller engines are cheaper, smaller, and lighter thus could maybe get me where i...

    well the Predator 301 weighs in at 57lbs and the 212 weighs in at 35lbs before you strip them down. still waiting on Aprox HP/RPM numbers from a place for moded engines in Stage one this is just cleaning up exhaust and intake air flow. as stock air cleaner and exhaust eat up 2.5HP on the 212.

    idea

    i will see if i can find it but someone did do a posting of a video for go carts but it might apply here for a idea of what the 212 predator can do HP wise

    idea

    for what its worth guys i do have a 6.5HP HFT engine that i can pull down and look at the weight of.. i know you can maybe ditch 1 or 2 lbs of them threw a aly flywheel.. and pictsidhe is right they do push those 212 predator engines over 20HP alot.. infact its pretty well documented on how to...

    idea

    more so the fact it dose not like to not be level and strait.

    idea

    so i was talking to my cousin the other day about the airplane idea.. and we came up with the idea of what if you ditched trying to find a 30HP V twin and went for a 2 engines of lower HP to power it.. could something like this work? i know there would be more support for getting HP out of...

    Low budget Ultralight Aircraft

    not to be a dick but you do know they make billet aluminum flyhweels for alot of the popular engines.. in fact any go carting performance parts place worth its salt sells them as the cast flyhweels cannot and should never be spun faster then 3800 RPM.. as they are known to explode
