It’s Alive!!!

08.10.08: The engine is complete, all parts are fitted and all bolts are correctly torque’d down. I’ve fabricated a decent throttle set up which is of a good enough design to use in any possible future commercial venture. When the engine has loosen up a bit then it should give 15hp+ peak and 13hp+ @ 5,000rpm (approx. prop speed).

I know a smaller prop spinning faster isn’t as efficient as a large one spinning slower but I hope that 13hp would be enough for 45kg thrust.
