  1. I've been an engine dealer for more than 25 years, and oem parts are not always better than after markets. Do your research on continental o200 heads and cylinders and you'la see why most people in the states are using aftermarket cylinders on certified planes. The very moment Yamaha or Suzuki start producing these light aero engines will be game over for everyone but rotax and lyc.
  2. I'm not to sold on nikasil, it's true they solve the corrosion problem, but read this: http://www.avweb.com/blogs/insider/ECI-Cylinder-AD-The-More-You-Look-the-Worse-It-Is-220510-1.html There must be a reason why millennium's cylinders are preferred instead of Eci's nikasil.
  3. It seems the sierras are a solid design, CASA hasn't said anything against it. I read somewhere that this plane is too light on pitch (lighter than most kit builds). Has anyone flown both the rv12 and sierra?
  4. This is unbelievable, I just saw the pictures
  5. Hi I'm planning on buying a lsa aircraft and I was falling in love with the morgan sierra 200 until I read this: http://www.pprune.org/archive/index.php/t-470339.html "With reference to the images provided, what brain dead moron: 1. Allowed a plastic automotive fuel filter to be used, let alone located forward of the firewall? 2. Used plastic cable ties in lieu of metal hose clips to secure a fuel line to a fuel filter and pump? 3. Tied electrical wiring to fuel lines? 4. Misdrilled, Ovalised and rewelded holes in what appears to be a control column? The visibly bent threaded rod end bearing I will charitably attribute to crash damage. 5. Failed to provide chafe protection for a brake line exiting the fuselage? 6. Failed to meet any form of edge distance limit on fitting a fibreglass fairing?" I have read all over the forums that Gary Morgan is a nice and honest person, but what about the quality of his planes? Seems that CASA doesn't think they are safe. I really like that plane, it's like a vans rv12 (removable wings) but faster, stronger, you can use a variety of engines and it seems that it can handle a mtow of 1500 lbs. I don't have much experience on aviation. Can someone tell me about the quality build of the sierra 200 (factory built)
