KITFOX VW LOOK.wmv
This is the sixth flight of my KITFOX VW - the engine now has 11 hours on
it and it is running strong with 900 to 1000 FPM climb and 80 MPH cruise -
it takes off in about 400 feet with a single pilot - have not flown duel
yet so don't know climb for two people - cylinder head temps at 275 and oil
temp at 210 - RPM is a solid 3200 and so far engine is great - should be
broken in in another 14 hours or so - will update as I go along -
Thrust Test Of VW Engine
This is a full power thrust test of the VW engine that I am selling on
Ebay. As you can see , it produces 205 pounds of pull . This is plenty for
a light weight single wing plane however this Fisher Youngster plane has
lots of wind drag so we need to swing a larger prop. More power SCOTTY!!

Experimental Aircraft Prop Hub Turned From 914 Porsche, Type 4 VW Engine Flywheel Part 1
Here is the first video of how we took the forged flywheel and made part of
our prop hub for my experimental aircraft project. It is going to go on a
Porsche 914 type 4 VW engine. this is only half of the prop hub assembly
as another aluminum part is needed to allow for the centering of the prop
on the hub. that video is yet to come.

Formula Vee Air Racing- Compilation
Formula Vee was concieved as an entry level class by famed air race pilot
Steve Wittman. Aircraft were restricted to a "box rule," with 75 square
feet of wing area, fixed landing gear, a fixed-pitch prop, and a 1600CC
Volkswagen air-cooled engine. Active from 1977 to 1997, the class
produced, arguably, the fastest VW powered vehicles ever made.
I'm sorry the video quality is not the best, this was made from a
deteriorated VHS tape that was itself a copy of the originals.
