    Zenith carburator

    I understand the simplicity of just setting your mixture to suit the time of year but I have a Grand Rapids Engine monitor and would like the capability of running lean of peak.I plan on some very long cross country flights. My crude understanding is that it would be easier on the engine and...

    Zenith carburator

    Thanks Dana and Rockie. The universal joint idea seems promising but I would need more than one I think.the first to get me headed back to the firewall and then another at the firewall to change direction again and get me to the control panel. I'm actually using a universal joint on my fuel...

    Manufacturing of ULpower engines

    Very impressive but alas the price keeps rising due to the dollar i assume.Its now close to $20.000 us for the 97 hp and on the plus side for the 107hp I recall about a year ago the 97 was around $17000+,so it just keeps getting farther out of my league.:dis:

    UL Engine

    It's not only a great engine on paper but with Zenith offering it as a firewall forward package it speaks volumes about the benefits and reliability of this engine . If it passes the Chris Heinz test,it's more than good enough for me.:) http://www.ulpower.com/engines/ul350i/index.htm lJust...

    Effects of wing length

    Sonex has made it an individual builders choice and has to do with the LSA category .I guess for me I would rather have a lower stall speed,allowing me to fly into shorter grass strips and yes if you want to go back to the longer wing span you would have to purchase 2 new wing tips and remove...

    Effects of wing length

    Negative on the Flaperons.The Sonex and Onex have normal flap / aileron configuration .The shortening would happen on the fiberglass tips only.I have not flown it ,that won't happen for a while yet.This was a topic brought up over at the Onex Forum and I knew from reading this forum a lot that I...
