Re: Boomerang Sprint Conversion to Gas

Congrats Brian

I think you may be on the edge of being tail heavy for C of G it really popped up on the takeoff run and again on landing. - It does fly nice a bit slower for sure - Congrats on following your dream for this bird you put in a lot of excellent work to get here Two huge thumbs up from me!

Cheers
Ken

Re: Boomerang Sprint Conversion to Gas

Thanks for the congrats Peter ??, Ken. You may be right Ken, it needed a bit of down trim on the first flight and on the second flight when I did the C of G inverted upline pass it slowly started it ark over. I'll leave it for now.

What I really like about is that it flies at a speed that fits my current mental abilities. LOL

Re: Boomerang Sprint Conversion to Gas

Awesome conversion Brian!!

Temps were ideal. Plane flew great and very clear to see how much lighter it flies without 120oz of fuel onboard. Only Boomer out there that can fly for 35min, LOL

I shouldn't spill the beans but I have to.... Brian tells me next phase will be to put a DLE120 in it with an 18x30 3-blade prop for clearance and go for 200mph.

Something tells me that would be a Trevor mod.

Although, it does sound like an attempt should be made to try it out.

Re: Boomerang Sprint Conversion to Gas

Trevor needs Speed. I need to relax and have fun. Although a nice new V2 Sprint with a DLE 55 and a 19x12 prop would be a great winter project for next year. Maybe not 200 mph but 180 for sure. Hummmmm.

What's Larry's number??

Re: Boomerang Sprint Conversion to Gas

Neat project, but it sounds so wrong on many levels.....!😁

That looks like Wingham airport...

Re: Boomerang Sprint Conversion to Gas

Wayne,

Your absolutely correct. It flew Ok but only just. The look and sound was just not right.
It's back to the jet configuration ready for a Turbine installation. It's currently for sale as airframe only but if there are no takers I have a K85G2 on order and can get it in the air quickly. I also have the new V2 Sprint on order.

Back to Turbines, Wahoooooo. Who would have thought?????

Re: Boomerang Sprint Conversion to Gas

Gassers certainly have their place, but I don't think this hybrid would really catch on..😁😂

Welcome back!!

I have a 1st generation Baby Boomerang that is undergoing a re-fit. The airframe is still in good shape, just going to clean up and simplify the installation, and replace fuel lines etc. Also replacing those tiny airscoops with a set of proper air inlets from a Nano
