Intrigued by the engine. How much and how many horsepower? If you don't mind. I built a Legal Eagle also. Had trouble with low power engines so I now have a 503 Rotax on it. Haven't flown it yet. I was also wondering, are you using a header tank for fuel, because I noticed that your fuel line runs "up hill" when the plane is sitting on it's tail.

Dan,
The Valley engineering big twin is a converted Generac 992cc 4 stroke swinging a 74X44 prop. the complete engine setup with reduction unit and prop weighs 120lbs. the engine generates 37hp and burns 1.25gal per hour. according to the previous owner this engine will pull the plane skyward at 900fpm. I have a 5 gallon wing tank and a diaphram type fuel pump to get the fuel to the engine.

Chris

Hi all,
I have moved my Legal Eagle to the hanger and am currently doing tail up taxi and awaiting my chute from BRS. I hope to be in the air by mid september.

never run out of altitude airspeed and ideas at the same time

3 things that dont matter altitude above you runway behind you and the gas back at the hanger

takeoff is optional landing is mandatory

Fly only in the middle of the air, the edges are identified by buildings trees and houses, and it is much more difficult to fly there.

It is better to be on the ground wishing you were flying then flying and wishing you were on the ground!
