Larry Ketterlings P-51 Engine
Geared Drives FWF engine package for P-51 at idle and run up very
conservatively since we were testing ignition only and there was no prop
installed. Note how smoothly the engine transitions from low RPM to higher
RPM. Nice rumbling sound through the short custom Exhaust, volume increased via the collector with
baffling within to provide back pressure and guard against shock cooling
Gipson's RV-10 with Geared Drives LS1 Engine Runup
Bill Gipson of Conroe, TX runs his RV-10 with the Geared Drives PSRU and
LS1 Firewall Forward Package built by Bud Warren. Notice that the engine
runs great at any RPM. We are expecting fuel burn rates from this
combination in the range of 7-15 GPH. With torque multplication throught
the Geared Drives PSRU the performance will be astounding! Be sure and
notice that there is no gear noise at all heard with this redrive, just the
smooth throaty sound of a Corvette engine.
Ravin 500 N913RA_0001.wmv
N913RA is a Ravin 500 kit from South Africa. I provided some assistance,
paint, and design for this aircraft from Jan 09 until it flew on July 22
2009. Its powered by a GM LS1 fuel injected V8, so i like to call it the
Ravin 500 Super Sport. I built a custom front cowling to fit the automotive
engine, and did many many hours of fiberglass work on this #2 Ravin in the
Western Hemisphere. This one is actually Kit #13 and is now one of the 20
or so flying Ravin aircraft all around the world.
Truyeart LS1 Engine for his RV-10 Starts for the first time!
Another Geared Drives LS1 engine package for RV-10 roars to life for the
very first time! The engine starts easily and runs at low RPM since it is
not good for it to run without the load of a propeller on it. We run it
long enough to test the systems, check for leaks, test the PSRU etc. At the
very end of the video you can see the breather on the PSRU kick over the
little bit of overage of oil as it seeks its natural level in the gearbox.
This is normal for a first run up.
Rolls Royce Turbine Engine For Small Planes
A 300+ hp (flat rated) turbine that weighs well under 300 pounds designed
for small general aviation aircraft. Is this what the high-end piston
market has been waiting for? Pilots may be asking, and Mooney may have an

The LP1 Aircraft Services General Aviation - Check Out The Airplane Window Molds Being Made
The LP1 aircraft services General Aviation and has the design goal of
"beating the airlines". It's slow work developing an aircraft, as you can
see from something simple like this video where we make the aircraft window
molds out of fiberglass and nomex honeycomb core. It's slow work to make
such a fast airplane! We expect a 385 mph cruise while only burning 14.gph,
either 100LL or Premium auto-gas can be used. These molds are fiberglass
but the entire aircraft is carbon fiber.
Roger Followell's Geared Drives LS1 Engine for Legendary P-51
Bud Warren starts the Geared Drives the LS1 Chevrolet firewall forward
engine package with Geared Drives PSRU prior to delivery to its owner,
Roger Followell. I heard the engine start up so I grabbed my camera...this
was the very first start and it did start first time. We are running it
gently since there is no load on the engine.
Geared Drives-starting a Chevrolet Powered Airplane from Sun n Fun
Demonstration of how easy it is to start a Chevy powered
airplane-centrifugal clutch does not engage prop fully until you rev the
engine up enough to taxi so no danger of it going anywhere. (Tinted glass
keeps you from seeing the helper on the brakes in right seat.)

This is my homebuilt Ultralight plane that I've been working on for two
years, It's got 8.2hp, weighs around 70kg and it's got a 5.5M wing span and
this is its progress so far...
