Re: REFLECTOR: SVX and Ivo Prop
Haven't talked to you in a while. I worked Rick in N570 eastbound after he
finally got out of Albuquerque with the weather. Too bad I didn't see him
while he was in town, but I did get to visit his plane at Double Eagle. The
wind was blowing so hard that I had to put his rudder clips back on from half
way across the ramp. ( April winds in Albuquerque!!) I talked to him for a
bit on Frequency from about Clovis to Childress Texas. He was making a
comfortable 177-180 Kts at 10K. Seemed a bit high for a Forida boy :)
Maybe next time he'll make it out to my place to lend a hand ( how much do
you pay him anyway..?) I do have a runway you know..!!
Call me if you need a hand on your project, I'd love to help out. Rick says
your engine sounds fantastic! All I'm doing is working on my own.
The V-6 is in the works up at Northwest Aero. I ran up there a few weeks ago
and looked at my "parts". I have to say, This guy does beautiful work. About
the time my Fuel injection is finished from Airflow Performance, the
Aluminum V-6 should be ballanced, assembled and waiting. I should have the
powerplant by mid-July. I am also thinking about running an Ivo Magnum, but
doubt I can get 76" out of it as my thrust line won't be a high as yours. I
wish I could, because I have to do something with 315 HP !!
I should be joining the fuselage halves next week. This week is being
spent on the final touches on the windows and the upper vent rail. The window
installation tips in V V worked without a hitch ( almost) .
Call me if you need me Lino, as long as it's not to sand ( have too much
Happy building all
