EP2 - Bearhawks in the Dust
In this second episode of the BackcountryPilot video series, we head out
into the Nevada desert sidecountry with BCP members Blackrock, Maverick,
and Cow Dog in their beautiful 235hp Bearhawks. We visit the site of Kevin
Quinn's High Desert fly-in, as well as a few other unspecified locations,
and we spoof famous and beloved Ohio filmmaker/aviator Greg Swingle.
Caution for the tiny ears who may be watching: The term "cowshit" is used
gratuitously. Only expose children to this soundtrack if you want them to
repeat this word.
Caution for the elderly ears: Loud rock music is overdubbed at times. Have
your mute button and nitroglycerin ready.
Caution for those easily susceptible to motion sickness: First person
flying scenes may cause vomiting and/or erection.
Franks Bearhawk Engine Test Run
LS1 firewall forward engine package with Geared Drives spur gear PSRU built
for Frank's Bearhawk airframe. Test run after 5 minutes at idle produced
145 degrees, 15 minutes 150 degrees, 20 minutes 160 degrees. When brought
up to 2000 RPM the engine cooled back down to 155 degrees! We have the
right cooling combination and we can make auto engines run as cool as you
would like in this configuration.

I created this video with the YouTube Video Editor

Finish Welding My Bearhawk Fuselage
I'm done with finish welding my fuselage and here's the outcome. I mention
the settings I used for the TIG torch and other items that made it work,
This video is only for sharing information about the progress of my project
with others and may cause cancer in lab rats living in California. Do not
let kids two and under try TIG welding 4130 in a bath tub. Use the info at
your own risk!
4130 Tubing - Welding Rod Test - Conclusion
My thoughts on the process. The welding rod may be important,, but it's
the ability and practice that makes a strong joint. TIG or gas, all welding
rods I used worked just fine. Practice, practice and more practice!!!
Homebuilt airplane with Subaru motor + 3 turbos for high altitude flying
Subaru ej22 car motor with 3 turbo
chargers and a burn box. Petrol goes by hot Exhaust to vaporize it - the burn box air is
direct from one turbo unit. When you
turn on petrol in the chamber and ignited the hot Exhaust is mixed with motor Exhaust to run the other turbo chargers that one needs at high elevation
(10,000 m. altitude plus).
I likes song Blinded by Science because forward view is not so good because
of the "science". ha, ha.
