Hi Gerhard, welcome to the forum.

 

This forum software cannot open your videos. I also tried Other Microsoft programs and Freemake video converter without success. The files said they downloaded to my Downloads folder, but I could not locate them. .MOV or .MP4 format are acceptable.

Wow, that looks like an amazing flight, Gerhard ... it must have been damned cold up there in a (breezy) Skyranger.

 

But it looks like a nice clear (winters) day for it. 

 

Can you tell us something about how you planned the flight.  And about your engine? 

 

Why did you choose a Skyranger?  What other aircraft have you flown/owned?

 

Anyway, welcome to the forum.

Hallo my Friends from Australia, I had to fly from Oppenheim to Friesach Hirt (LOKH) because i bought the plane there. They finished the plane end of November. From Oppenheim to Passau was the first Route, the weather was foggy, the visibility was bad till Passau ( it is close to the alps on the north side). I stayed one night in a bed and breakfast there, the people was very friendly in ( Fürstenzell, EDMF). Next morning it was always foggy, but i checkt the weather, and in Ried im Innkreis it (LOKL) , this is very close to the alps on the north side, the weather was clear, so I asked for clearance for 10 000 ft, and I startet to climb. there was tailwind, the climbing was very slow, but it was ok. I take Direktion to Mauterndorf (LOSM). Salzburg International Airport was on the left hand side, my altitude was 10 000 ft. than I flight to my home base LOKH. The flight in the alps was 2 hours, very good time, because i hat tail wind. The whole flight was a bit risky, didnt know the plane yet, it was about 0 degrece Celcius and the carburetor startet to ice up a bit. I had to use the second pump and hat to fly full power, then was the engine running very well. I have a Sauer Engine 2,2 l. 85 hp, direkt drive. Sorry for my bad english, wish you a nice weekend.

Regards

Gerhard

This was the route.

I fligh also Ikarus C 42 Traveller from the club, in the past I had a Autogyro MTO 3.

I like also Gliders,I fly a Grob Astir and ASK 23, also a Motor Glider HB 23 from the Club.

I desidet for this sky ranger because it had only 350 hours and the engine was new.

I wanted to have not a rotax engine, and this one was equippet with a sauer engine.

I had a rotax engine on the Gyro, i had a lot of problems with strike back, the freewheel was broken. It was a lot of work to change it. It is really expensive and complicated to fix. This can not happen with Sauer Engine, this engine is based on VW Boxer engine. Old technology and good sound.

But the power is a bit less than rotax.

Gerhard,  I believe the problem you had with your 912 on your Gyro is the one described in this video,

Is that right?

We fly C 42 with turbo engine in the club, this engine is new and works very good for towing Gliders, it is super powerfull.

We have another C 42 traveller for longer trips with a new 100 hp rotax engine, with constand speed, it works also without any Problems.
