    Rotax 912

    How much does a fuel injected 914 cost?
  2. Where does this leave farmers mustering cattle on their own farm using raa certificate and rego aircraft, I know of a lot that do just that, also claiming some tax benefits on running costs and depreciation, sounds like it maybe all illegal

    Rotax 912

    Talking to a bloke at echuca fly in for roast day last month , he built a really great sling 4 seater powered by a 914 but at 110 cruise it burnt 28 litres two up, I know it is a lot more plane than my Sabre which uses about 18 at around 120, I reckon it was maybe underpowered.

    Trip north

    Never got off the ground , all the starters piked one by one , really need some escorts on these sort of trips just to keep a look out for each other, I’m always keen to fly anywhere so let me know if your happy to have another flyer to be apart of the sortie

    Engine problem

    Unsure , but I will find out , plane is a Europa, the one with the mono wheel and two wing stalks, gets along pretty good , thought the problem might have been a throttle cable hanging up but thinking about it the cables are pulling the butterflies closed when throttling back

    Engine problem

    have a mate with a 80 Rotax , at cruise , 5200, when he backs off the throttle a couple of hundred revs there is a slight miss but then settles down , does every time , l thought it was to high in the rev range to be carby balance, any ideas,

    New battery

    It does have a cap fitted and I did wonder if it was the culprit, doesn’t seemed to have lost any voltage after two days so maybe okay

    New battery

    just fitted a new battery in my plane , 914, and noticed after fitting the positive that when I touched the negative it produced a small spark , everything turned off, where would I be loosing current.
