Wow. Very jealous. I got to see it earlier this year on my trip to top gun but didn't get up and personal like that. Great detail photos. Will come in handy when I get back into my Paige Gee Bee.
Great pics though

Nice pictures. I see you made it to Kermit Weeks museum. The Sutherland in the back I seen fly in England often in the late 80's. He has a very nice collection. Im going to Florida next May for TopGun. I may have to check it out

here is a few pics from the first flight, pics are take off and landing, i killed the engine just before touch down because i was running out of runway. engine sagged (overheated) and did emergency landing after 10-12 min flight
going to add the baffles to cure that issue. running 3W-150 for power. found out a out of trim gee bee takes every bit of your attention to get it trimed out at that speed! turns out the balance is dead on!! it was mainly rudder trim that gave me issues and found i need to add more expo to the ailerons, man they were quick!! i could not beleave how fast this thing is at full power! eats up the airspace quick!
i did love how this plane lands, no nonsense just unreal!
now that maiden is done i need to order the graphics for it.
anyone add smoke?? or does it add too much weight?

Hello Hannes,

wow, that is grrrrreeeeeaaaaat!!!
German users guessed that when they saw and read your piper ebay auction some days ago....

Which version is it?

How much weight has this engine and how much weight adds it to your Gee Bee?

Best wishes,
Wolfgang

@ brezel53: Ich glaub wir können Deutsch sprechen Wolfgang ;-)

Das ist der 7 Zylinder EVO von Horizon Hobby mit 160ccm!

Das mit dem Gewicht wird sich ausgehen, nicht arg viel schwerer wie der DA150 mit kompletter Auspuffanlage** ;-)

@eagledancer: At the time I flew the Gee Bee without dummy radial I put some wood inside the cowl to cool the engine down.

Easy and works PERFECT!!

Hallo Hannes,

stimmt, aber das wäre in diesem Forum unfair....
Danke für die Antwort, ich bewundere schon eine Weile Deine Gee Bee "Karriere"! Hammer!
Auch die Rich-Hannes Connection, einfach toll!
Ich hatte Dich mal angeschrieben, aber keine Antwort. Vielleicht kam auch nix an.

Das mit dem Gewicht hätte ich nicht gedacht, aber leistungsmäßig ist der Stern sicher unterlegen?
Aber natürlich sowas von scale, auch wenn 2 Zylinder fehlen...

Hast Du lange auf den Stern warten müssen? Wo hast du ihn gekauft?

Bin schon gespannt, bitte Videos machen!

Gruß
Wolfgang

@others: sorry, that was a little small-talk with Hannes, i asked him about weight and power of the radial.

x2

- every Gee Bee flight is worth a vid

- if something goes wrong, a good video can help to analyse the cause of accident

Hello Hannes... Engine looks nice, I would be interested in the Weight of this Motor. Is it heavier than the Moki 250? I Certainly hope you have plans to do Something about the Seams this time, then Perhaps Repaint it as well, Then it will look Sharp! Whats another 2000.00 for a Nice Paint Job? RIGHT?!

The MOKI 250 is bigger and heavier, the EVO is 4800g!

Yes, this timeI will also spend some timefor a good paint job ;-)

Hello Hannes... Thanks for the Video and Links to this Motor... Personal opinion, Although it looks Great and is lighter than the Moki, It certainly doesn't have the Moki Sound... I also Noticed the Idle is a little faster than the 250 Moki as well. What is the Specs for the Idle on this motor? Just Curious.
