VW for KITFOX
this is a first test run of a Great Plains VW 2180 80 HP with a Culver 62
by 29 inch prop - I'm swapping out the 582 Rotax and replacing it with this
VW in a few days and I will update with the flying results -

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!!
Kitfox VW CLIMB!.wmv
This is an inside cockpit look at the climb on a VW 80 horse aeroconversion
- I was able to get a good 1000 FPM climb from a VW direct drive 2180 VW -
check the needles probably got 1100 FPM - outside air was 65 degrees head
wind of five miles an hour and takeoff weight at or about 850 lbs - the VW
is a great replacement for the 582!
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!
Ultralight Flying in France
This is a 1990 video of myself flying an Airland ultralight on the north
coast of France. Powered by a VW 2.2L engine, this aircraft is I believe no
longer manufactured. I was towing banners there. It was a great time and a
lot of fun!
