First Contact ;)

Hello again

For a first time sitting in his airplane and start the engine. Sometimes the most awaited moment of an aircraft builder. This week it happened again. Our client has been sitting for the first time in the assembled machine, become familiar with her and run the engine itself. His smile says enough. We have also examined the retraction of the Gear and the empty center of gravity. Both are ok. So on to the final sprint

Flyin

Hello again

many thanks to the Pilots, which doesnt need good Weather for their Visit to Pasewalk last Weekend. Lachend

Shortly after 9am the first Plane arrives. Some more joined in until Noon but most of them deceided to leave after a Visit to our factory due to the upcoming storm. So there were only two Planes flying to Hangar10 and have some Fun.

  • DSCN0619
  • DSCN0620
  • DSCN0622
  • DSCN0625
  • DSCN0626

It was a surprise for the Participants, that the Original Me 109G14, which is open for Public in Hangar 10, is smaller inside the Cockpit as the Microlight Me 109. We had the First Person view of both Places and it was very interesting. And, it is not so small due to the Pedals which was fixed for small children Cool.

At 4.30pm we arrived back to Pasewalk and started BBQ. Sadly it starts to get stormy and a heavy Rainshower struck the Place as we had just leaved. But noone was harmed and on Sunday we were also joined by another Pilot and ended the Fly in  with many good impressions and Ideas for the next one 2013.

See you next Time

D-Day

Hello again

Today is "the" Day. The D-Motor has done his first Run. Fascinating and easy. Here are the first impressions:

  • Compared to the known Engines (Rotax, AA850, Limbach etc.) he is very steady and vibrationless. Min. RPM is adjusted to 600 RPM.
  • Power unleashed. We could not stand more than 2000 RPM on the first Run.
  • Sound is impressive, but also not to loud. So we doesn´t think it willl be a Problem to get Noise Certificate.

Caused by the very narrow Cowling we have most of the Connections not fixed by now. Due to the Impressions of this first Runs we could now beginn to complete the Installation. You wish to see and hear th Result by yourself?

Just visit us Lachend...   or watch the Video.

 

We would be proud if you send us your Feedback via Guestbook/Forum.
