    I have been trying to join the Yahoo group for quite some time now(months) with no luck. My good friend(machinist) and I(fabricator/machinist) think this engine would be a fantastic project but I have had no luck tracking down a set of plans. Anyone know where I could obtain a set?


    Thanks,
    Chris

    It's my understanding that HCI never really made it to the practical-proposition-for-flight stage and their site has been without updates for several years.

    Sometimes it takes a while to get accepted to the Yahoo group. It isn't real active, & the moderator may have other priorities.
    However.....I can help you out.
    Plans are available. The 5cyl. R-180 engine (75hp) plans are$130.00 +$5.00 s+h.
    The 7cyl. R-220 engine (123hp, 160lbs.) plans are $185.00 + $5.00 s+h.

    Send payment (in US funds) to..... Jack Herford

    New Haven Mo. 63068
    If you need further help, contact me offline.
    (There are no longer any parts or castings available.)

    I believe they only let in people who have plans. I tried joining a couple times to no answer, but once I obtained plans and applied was accepted within a couple days.

    It's been about a year since I got my set but in case you're still looking I'd advise to email the designers and they'll probably still have them.

    I think that the problem of "joining the group" lies partly with the way Yahoo has things set up.
    I discovered that your "application" for group membership would expire after about a week or so.
    Which means that if the site owner/moderator dosen't check it frequently enough, your application would go unanswered.

    When I first applied, I had to re-apply several times.

    Be patient, but be persistant.

    To the best of my knowledge, yes.
