Default Another rotary turbo flyer - almost....

I just spoke with Buly down in Ft. Lauderdale. He did his first high speed taxi test this afternoon. Look for a first flight any day now.....

Buly's engine is identical to mine except that it's a cosmo which should give him a little more power. He's running a stock turbo, EC2 controller, HC rotors, 3mm seals and RD1B redrive. He told me that the plane reached 55 kts very quickly using only 30 MAP. For those building wider this will be an important first flight. Buly's fuselage is wider than stock.

I'll let Buly tell his own story.

I'm not writing as much because I've been busier than usual with work. I'm taking notes and will write when time permits.

Why would I want to buy a "Recreational Vehicle" that goes 60 mph and uses 8 gallons/mile?

The only problem with a Cozy is that you can't tow a boat, or a spare car behind it. But, you can rent them when you get there, save a fortune on gas and spend a lot more time on the boat.
