Hi everyone,
I am a retired oldie who has just purchased a built from plans 1700 Hi Max with a Global opposed 4 stroke twin supplying the airconditioning upfront. An ex sailplane pilot of some 300hrs who was very slow to see the errors of his ways before seeing the light and converting two years ago now with some 100hrs real flying under his belt. However I am finding it difficult tofind out anything about Global engines if anyone has any info that could lead me inthe right direction I would be enternally gratiful.

Hey Blakey - Glad to have you here. I did some web searching for Global and came up with nothing. Hope someone will have the info you need. Welcome!

These guys claim to own the design now, but the recomended engine is now a Rotax 447, or any engine up to 45hp. If you can't find out anything about your global you may have a fine anchor if you make a seaplane version.:whistle:

I did find a couple of dead links referring to the Hi-max with a global engine.

Can you post some more info about it, pikkie even? A friend has an old powered hang-glider with a now rare motor that doesn't show up on the net. Single ignition, cast iron, wouldn't pull a greasy stick out of a dog's @rse. Wouldn't fly with it.
