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!!

aircraft engine ground run
End of a good engine run on my scratch-built and much modified Evans VP1
fitted with a factory reconditioned (Australian) Jabiru aircraft engine
instead of a VW car engine. The little single-seater aircraft in now to be
named "Annie Murphy" after my 4 kids' Irish great-grandmother. This fits in
nicely with the official registration G-BVAM - or Alpha Mike for short.
This is my 2nd VP1, I started G-AYUJ years ago and she is still flying.
It's a classic design from California in the 1960s designed by Bud Evans
and initially called the Volksplane. This is not a kit - you just buy the
plans and cut the wood and metal yourself!
