ROTAX ENGINE CONFIGURATOR

Written by

ROTAX has just released a new state-of-the art online engine configuration tool. Using this tool, you can load an accurate 3D model of a current production engine, and experiment with all the various configuration options. The model can be rotated and zoomed on-screen, and as you change the various options, the total weight of the engine is updated and displayed in realtime! When you have it configured just as you like it, you can then email yourself a link to download a PDF of the configuration (and optionally you can pass it to ROTAX to have your local authorized ROTAX dealer follow up on it with you.)

ROTAX Carburetor Floats Identification

Written by

A new version of carburetor floats (Part number 861189) has been introduced for Rotax® Engine Type 912, 914 and 2-stroke (Series).

Experts agree that a used aircraft should be inspected by a qualified technician before negotiating the final selling price. Even if you are a mechanically inclined pilot, the excitement of buying an aircraft can cause people to get caught up in the emotions and can lead to missed mechanical, cosmetic and safety issues during visual inspections and test flights. There is a lot to consider when inspecting an aircraft: the FAA has published the comprehensive Advisory Circular AC 43.13-1B which weighs in at 646 pages!  

We have produced a video segment in which we cover important information you need to know when doing a pre-purchase inspection on a Rotax powered aircraft. (You can CLICK THIS LINK to view the final inspection report.) 

Watch our Rotax 912ULS powered Kitfox V Pre-Buy inspection video to follow along as we cover the WHY, WHO, and HOW regarding a pre-purchase inspection for your Rotax powered aircraft!

NEW SCU - System Control Unit for 912 / 915 iS

Written by

RS Flight Systems has now developed the SCU (System Control Unit) for ROTAX fuel-injected engines (912i & 915i).

This SCU provides you with numerous additional system interface capabilities! 

A major benefit is the Single Lever Power Control (SLPC) function. With SLPC, the EMU controls the propeller governor as a function of the power setting, the altitude and aircraft specific input parameters. This combines the advantage of the easy handling of a fixed pitch propeller with the performance enhancement of a constant speed propeller.
