Not much luck on builders. According to this, the first one from the new company just started construction in January.

Specs (the Revolution II is the same as the Spacewalker II):
http://www.warnerair.com/infopack.pdf (And you had better download that. Warner no longer supports the Spacewalker, so there's no telling how long that link will work.)
http://www.pilotfriend.com/experimental/acft6/32.htm#t (Spacewalker I)
http://www.pilotfriend.com/experimental/acft6/33.htm#t (Spacewalker II)

You might get more answers from the Yahoo group.

I'm buiding a revolution II/Spacewalker II. Based on the specs provided, I expect it to fly like a cessna 120. Slightly more drafty, better climb, better looks, less range (less fuel capacity).

I noticed that some of those links list a 1200lbs gross weight. My info lists 1400lbs gross weight.

Maybe the 1200 is the Spacewalker I.

Ok, a bit late coming to the party, but FWIW here are the performance figures for my 150 hp Rotec radial-powered Spacewalker II -RR :

Empty weight 895 lbs
Take-off run : 400 ft
Climb : 1200 fpm
Cruise Speed : 100kts at 3000 engine rpm (65% power)
Fuel Burn : 5.8 US gals/hour at 100 kts
4.7 gals/hr at 80 kts
Max Speed : 120 kts

Delightful handling - very similar to RV at the same speeds

Cheers

Hi Martin,


Got any pics of your radial powered beauty in finished and in construction?

Sounds like a perfect combination.

I am very, very jealous.
:lick:

How many hours has she got now?

I bet you have had some memorable flights.
