  • Direct drive EA-81 Bensen(ish) info needed.

    Hi Guys,A friend of mine is currently building a Bensen with a Subaru EA-81 direct drive setup.In order to satisfy the local "suits" that this is a Kosher setup, he needs tobe able to list three or more similar examples previously flown.I"m pretty sure this arrangement has been done a number of times,whether in the U.S or Oz I"m not so sure.Anyway, we would appreciate any info about previous examplesof this configuration.Registration letters is all we need. Any Bensen-ish machine is OK.Fly safe, Fergus Kavanagh.

    How many do you want, Fergus? I think it was in "98 that I went to the Nats at Lameroo, and the majority of the machines flying there were EA81 direct drives. I flew minew like that for 8 years. G569 is the rego. If you look back through the Gyro News of the "80"s you"ll see heaps of them.CheersFred
