  • Subaru 2.2l engine brainstrust required.

    Looking for a "brains-trust" who has experience maintaining/installing/operating the Subaru 2.2 in a gyrocopter, in preparation for a new installation in case I strike trouble.

    As far as I am concerned the 2.2 is a dam good affordable gyro engine with ample power. You have several options for the electronics. I have only used the NZ Autoflight gearboxes. There are some belt drive options which I am not familiar with. As far as maintanence I just change the oil and filter a little sooner than you would a car calculating 100 km as 1 hr. One must be careful with bleeding the coolant. make sure you get all the air out at the top of the engine. Air pockets have destroyed many engines. I found that out the hard way. The good part is you can always pick up a crashed car for $500 and get another engine.

      Now looking for a recommendation to find someone who can get a g4 link ecu wired up. Not having any luck locally. SA or VIC are closest. Going into the Subaru 2.2 mentioned here.

              Know how you feel I've still not got my Microtech perfect. So hard to find a nurdy person who is willing to work on a flying machine (Afraid of liabitity) and when you do they are often heavyweights and you can't put them in the sky. No need to be big anymore. we've invented guns
