  1. Saw this on another forum; A-22 landing and taking off on a ship.
  2. KRviator, The MTOW for a RV-9A is listed as 1600 to 1750lbs (727 to 795kg) How did you register it in RAAus ???? when the MTOW is currently 600kg
  3. Roughly you'd be looking at about AU$60,000 for a single seat "KIT" to your door.
  4. The Merlin is a very nice and well made single seat aircraft and were originally being sold by the ProTech company in the Czech Republic; it was listed as assembled 15,500 euro and kit 5,500 euro in 2017 But now they don't sell them from the Czech Republic, it was acquired by Aeromarine in the US about five years ago and the factory works for them manufacturing the Merlin's there for export. https://aeromarine-lsa.com/photo-gallery/eg-plane-gallery/ ProTech do not reply to emails, all enquiries are directed to Aeromarine and they handle all reply's and orders Typically when a good design like this is swallowed up by another company, especially from the US, the price escalates and for the US that's OK because everything is priced in US$ but all other countries especially here, get screwed. It would be better to buy a 2 seat Jabiru or other aircraft than to import a Merlin into Australia.

  5. I've done a bit more searching and if you need clarification on the exact specifications of the G97/M7; Peter Harlow - Foxbat Australia would be able to give you the correct information as he was the approved Australian/New Zealand distributor for them. He may even pick up on this thread and let us know what happened to the design. APenNameAndThatA you will know Peter.
  6. I think you got the MTOW wrong; it's 472.5kg not 742kg
  7. I did some searching last night and found information from 2014, which I've put in a PDF attachment. The G97 was renamed the M7 by the designer who I have emailed but not received a reply yet. Cheers, G97 - M7.pdf

    This is a brand new 100hp Twin Rotor Rotary Engine purposely built in Germany for use in recreational aircraft. It has only been used to test a supercharged version for 180hp which didn't work as the belt drive supercharger was draining too much power out of the engine. This is a watercooled engine and can be mounted horizontally or vertically, weighs only 28kg without a PSRU; so if your looking for an engine to make your aircraft look like you have a Turbine installed, then this is the unit you need. Price is firm; no offers

  12. There are a lot of difference way's to produce a coaxial propeller drive This sketch could be one Or you could use one of these https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=Drive+for+coaxial+propellers+1+-+10 Just work on what suits your application best; but I would use belts to the prop shafts.
