I just recalled that I sold three aircraft that started with a "NO" too.

Hi cburgoontrike3,

Probably not. I believe the most common reason that people go with an auto engine conversion is because they want to save money over a traditional aircraft engine. The way money is saved is hundreds if not thousands of hours doing all the work oneself - constructing every tiny little component, trying it, finding it doesn't work like desired, constructing something new, and repeat. Many folks think that an auto-conversion is an auto engine bolted to a custom motor mount and off you go. It isn't. This is a big reason that there are no "successful" auto engine conversion companies still in business. They simply cannot charge enough to cover their costs. Also the reason, IMO, that Eggenfellner is no longer around. They tried this approach until the number of their customers screaming about broken engines/components/PSRU's was so loud they couldn't take it and they simply walked away.

It is purely a guess but if I supposed that I had 2000 hours in my EJ-22 conversion and valued my time at $100/hour... Well, it's alot. However; I could be talked into it if you are still interested.

If this is for a Q2, I'd suggest a really swell engine that is pretty well proven. An O-200. Yeah, I know, you'll spend some $10,000-$15,000 getting one ready and installed. It will feel like a lot of cash, particularly for an airplane that is worth $16,000.00. However; you will be flying in a much shorter period of time and it will just "work". If you have a huge wad of cash that you need to burn, look at the Rotax 912. It is a good/proven engine and should offer a challenge to install. The Jabiru and UL engine may also be an option.

Please do not be offended. If you scoffed at the above, it may mean that you do not know the truth and/or are wearing rose colored glasses. I have learned that anyone looking to purchase a firewall forward package is not a good candidate for an auto-conversion. As of this point in time, they are not a bolt on and forget. This is not to say that they are not a good option, I still believe that they are - just not for everyone nor every airplane/mission. The problem is that they are nearly all a "custom" package. That package takes hundreds of hours to prove - to work out the bugs/issues. The big benefit of the O-200 is it's track record. What is that track record worth? Maybe not a lot for an alternator bracket but probably something for the more significant components.

Thanks Jon, I completely understand…but figured it was worth a try…and that perhaps yours was for sale. I love it. I sold my Tri-Q2 after I flew the Tri-Q200. I was ruined. My next Q will have a 200.

This is for a 2.2 gyro project I picked up which is about 70% complete.

I have three gyros with a 582, 2.2, and Mac...and three trikes with 447, 503 and Continental A-75.

I'm familiar with the design & constructability compromises.

They are all flying except the 2.2. I'm undecided whether to finish the 2.2 or put a Rotax 670 on it. The 670 is much less hassle...but less HP.

However, the direct drive 2.2 with small prop like yours will keep my thrust-line low which is extremely important on gyros. I don't have room for a big slow prop…only a fast small one like yours.

This is not to say that they are not a good option, I still believe that they are - just not for everyone nor every airplane/mission. The problem is that they are nearly all a "custom" package. That package takes hundreds of hours to prove - to work out the bugs/issues. The big benefit of the O-200 is it's track record. What is that track record worth? Maybe not a lot for an alternator bracket but probably something for the more significant components.

Jay,
As soon as I get out of phase one (~20hr) I will entertain something like that.

I may still go to a finer pitch, and I may have some cooling system work left yet.

Hi all,

The weather was good yesterday so I took the opportunity to put some more test hours on the Corvair powered Dragonfly Mk-II.

I sent my Tennessee 52"X 58" prop in and had it cut to a 54" pitch with swept tips in a quest for more rpm. I can now get 3200 rpm in level flight at 6200 ft MSL with 145 mph indicated. I need to recheck the timing as it was freezing when I timed it. I had flown the new prop once but the weather was not good so I only went 10 miles from the airport and returned.

With 10 gallons in the main tank and 10 gallons in the aux tank and 2.25 in the header I planned a flight from Ogden to Wendover Utah. This is my western limit airport and to get to it I have to go down the I-15 corridor in class B or stay out of B and go over the Great Salt Lake. I chose to fly to Antelope Is and follow the causeway out to it. Then I flew along the Island to the south end, class B lowers to 6500 ft but you can keep pretty close to the mud flats while crossing the open water to the south shore. I then turned west and flew to KENV landed and checked out the WW -II museum that shows the training leading up to the B-29 A bomb drops. The counter lady said I had the cutest airplane she had ever seen and asked if I needed fuel or a shuttle to town.

I dipped the main tank and it showed 4 gallons I had 1.6 hrs on the Hobbs, checked the aux by looking in the tank. I had never done an in flight transfer from the aux tank as the main has to be able to hold anything I pump into the header. I started the transfer while getting ready to taxi and by the time I was at the hold short I could see movement on the fuel gauge. Take off and flight back to Ogden was uneventful with all of the aux tank transferred to the main before I started back over the lake. I have not refueled yet still have fuel in the main and header and did 3 take offs and flew 290 miles.

Here is a link to a 17 min video no music so bring your own music. This starts as I am crossing the last open water over the Great Salt Lake and turning west toward Wendover to go around the south end of the lake.

Re: Dragonfly Corvair update

Jon,

I was just curious as there is not much on short props. I started with a 52" X 58" Tennessee and could not turn it past 2700 which is not even max torque.

I am now running the 58 pitch cut down to 54" with swept tips and getting 3200 rpm. I am going to recheck timing, if it is correct I will send my 54" square tip prop in to get cut down to 52" or 50" of pitch.

Regards,
Charlie

Charlie,

I really haven't enough time on the engine to have a meaningful number. I
just started it and ran it for a total of 20-30 minutes. than I
disassembled it swapped out the crank and put the fifth bearing on. My
log shows that with the 55"x52P Cloud Car prop the highest RPM I hit was
2583. However I wasn't really trying to run it wide open and I didn't
check the timing or anything. I was just trying to see if all the systems,
starter, oil, fuel ETC. where working. Now I'm back to the beginning with a
reassembled engine and a whole new panel with an EFIS and EMS in place of
the Westach engine gauges that were originally in the airplane. I'll let
you know more later

Another very good auto conversion for the Q is the Revmaster.
The new R2300 should be a good fit and the price is just south of $8000.

Hi cburgoontrike3,

Probably not. I believe the most common reason that people go with an auto
engine conversion is because they want to save money over a traditional
aircraft engine. The way money is saved is hundreds if not thousands of
hours doing all the work oneself - constructing every tiny little
component, trying it, finding it doesn't work like desired, constructing
something new, and repeat. Many folks think that an auto-conversion is an
auto engine bolted to a custom motor mount and off you go. It isn't. This
is a big reason that there are no "successful" auto engine conversion
companies still in business. They simply cannot charge enough to cover
their costs. Also the reason, IMO, that Eggenfellner is no longer around.
They tried this approach until the number of their customers screaming
about broken engines/components/PSRU's was so loud they couldn't take it
and they simply walked away.

It is purely a guess but if I supposed that I had 2000 hours in my EJ-22
conversion and valued my time at $100/hour... Well, it's alot. However; I
could be talked into it if you are still interested.

If this is for a Q2, I'd suggest a really swell engine that is pretty well
proven. An O-200. Yeah, I know, you'll spend some $10,000-$15,000 getting
one ready and installed. It will feel like a lot of cash, particularly for
an airplane that is worth $16,000.00. However; you will be flying in a much
shorter period of time and it will just "work". If you have a huge wad of
cash that you need to burn, look at the Rotax 912. It is a good/proven
engine and should offer a challenge to install. The Jabiru and UL engine
may also be an option.

Please do not be offended. If you scoffed at the above, it may mean that
you do not know the truth and/or are wearing rose colored glasses. I have
learned that anyone looking to purchase a firewall forward package is not a
good candidate for an auto-conversion. As of this point in time, they are
not a bolt on and forget. This is not to say that they are not a good
option, I still believe that they are - just not for everyone nor every
airplane/mission. The problem is that they are nearly all a "custom"
package. That package takes hundreds of hours to prove - to work out the
bugs/issues. The big benefit of the O-200 is it's track record. What is
that track record worth? Maybe not a lot for an alternator bracket but
probably something for the more significant components.

Jon,

I spoke to a DAR when I started and had my choice to work with the San Diego FSDO and mod the existing plane, or scrap it and start over. By starting over it is a new plane in the eyes of the FAA so Phase one has never been accomplished. The repairman certificate for the new plane had never been issued so I was able to obtain that.

I do not know about Johnson Creek yet, first thoughts no Dragonfly in Johnson Creek without taking off from a similar grass strip with not so many obstacles first. If I go it will probably like last year catch a ride in.

Hi Charlie,

Great to see you in the air again! A few questions for you.

1. Why did you they put you back into Phase 1? With my last couple engine changes (the more recent ones), they just gave me 5 hours and told me to be careful. Going back to Phase 1 is what they did twenty years ago. Obviously it is up to the FSDO so I suppose you get what you get! :-)

2. Are you going to be at Johnson Creek for the June 15 flyin? I plan to be there again, weather permitting. I think the DF will do just fine on the grass, bring it along!

Thanks Jon. I'd like to try the direct drive just like the one you have shown. Can I purchase it from you? How about a complete 2.2? All I have is a long block, no accessories.

It was direct-drive. See the following (watch for line wrap) or http://bit.ly/113Q9rT

The only PSRU's that I am aware of that are still in production and may be fit for use are Marcotte (ya gotta call him) and Air Trikes (www.airtrikes.net).

Good luck.

I read elsewhere that there is a Q2 running a Sub 2.2 direct-drive. Any info on this would be greatly appreciated.

Also looking for a zero offset PSRU for this engine. Everybody is out of business…very sad.
