  1. Hi Ian Some sad news "Decca" Derek Cooper passed away peacefully on Wednesday morning His funeral will be on Monday at 11AM Details are in the local paper "The Courier" Regards
  2. Aerovee I have the Waiex with the Aerovee engine that is mentioned. Facthunter may have seen it when it had a faulty coil. When it is tuned correctly it run superbly. The areocarb operation is such that fuel is introduced as soon as the mixture is set to rich so if the engine is not turning the fuel will drip out. The starting procedure is such that as soon as you hit the starter you go from full lean to full rich and the engine will start in one or two turns with no fuel leakage at all Anyone is quite welcome to come and have a look at the installation.Give me a call on 0438508576 if you would like to see it or discuss it more. The Yahoo group on Aerovee is an excellent resource
  3. I have an Aerovee in a Waiex. It seems to be a great engine Check out the Sonex web site as this engine is very popular http://www.sonexaircraft.com
