Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

My 120 was a "tad" rough when I first got it. Nothing to write home about. Now that is is breaking in and is well tuned it is not much worse than my DA100L which is quite smooth. My 60 is only slightly worse than my DLE55's were. Again nothing I would get excited about.

Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

I see on Trevors list only one Zenoha, a 20. If he like it, he sure would like the others in appropriate airframes.
Many think I love Zenoha's. Well I sure like them. They have a place/job, and are so predictable and do their job well.
Many of his other choices are along my thoughts. Mostly watching what others bring, and enjoy at the many events we attend.

Mr. Banville (hope I spelt that right), you hold out a pot long enough someone will crap in it.



Hey Jack, I found an interesting concept on options to purchase prime movers. Primarily internal combustion. Worthy of a seperate post. Interested? It could change the way we all buy engines.

Oh yes...the new like never before....Rent-A-Chint AGM engines.

Eastern Mafia will be all over that...One will pay the first months rent, test it (buttermilk smooth), then pass it onto the next one for one months rent. He'll run it in a plane, the bearing will go (says it's a weak spot in em)...he'll replace them, then the last one will mount in an Ultimate and swear on his grave it's the best Chint engine ever!!!

Oh, the $120 B&E graphics type thing. I can relate. I never installed the factory decals on my Sukhoi. Thought I would save them for the inside of the cargo trailer door.

Are you going to enjoy your new cargo trailler? I'm sure you will.

Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West
