  1. Hi, im just curious what gap they are trying to fill with this engine? They are obviously not trying to save weight as that will never happen with a 4t. Noise? Not sure they will be able to make it much quieter than others. Power? Its not going to trump a 2t is it? Fuel consumption it would win hands down over the 2t`s but as with anything this usually comes at a cost eg weight. It would be awesome if it ticked any of the boxes , i was just wondering what the goal was.

  4. Hi, i dont think you will find there is anything down here to help you out to be honest. Also i think you will find to do the instructor training you need to of been qualified as a ppg pilot for about 2 years before you can even start the training (APPI Rules). I think most people tend to go up country or go abroad to get the majority of training done. Cheers
  5. Just adding my little bit for anyone thinking of getting a new bit of kit. Ive only owned 3 motors so far, a PAP top 80, a Zenith with a moster and my new PAP Tinox with a moster 2020. I have flown a few others while training including a Atom and a EOS100. They are all pretty different i must say. Atom and the EOS were the quietest and smoothest but obviously not that much power. Great for really light pilots im sure. My top 80 was a really nice thing to fly you just had quite a bit of running to do to get it off the ground. It was smooth and really economical. Then came the Zenith! I never got on with it to be honest. Really uncomfortable, heavy and vibrated loads. I had the prop balanced but it was never very smooth. I also found the Arms we really high up under my arms making it really uncomfortable in flight. And now my new PAP Tinox with a moster. Much lighter than the Zenith (or feels much lighter) and really comfortable in flight. The 2020 moster is way better than the old version with a much flatter spread of power and much smoother. I was put off the moster after my zenith but having spoken to quite a few schools who put loads of hours on these things the moster was coming out as a favourite. Im glad i went with it now as its a marked improvement on my old model... The PAP is really easy to assemble and take apart and pretty much on par with others on price too. Well worth a look for anyone considering a new bit of kit.
  6. Hi, same here! (universal). Seems to work fine.
  7. Just to say i went for the PAP TINOX in the end and i am very pleased. Its a really nice bit of kit and way way easier to put together and take apart than the Maverick which was my other option. The 2020 moster is a big improvement over my older model too.
  8. thanks again for trying. Cheers
  9. Can only really be the needle valve is not doing its job. Could be a tiny piece of dirt in there doing it. Its the only way excess fuel can get in there.
  10. No it wouldnt happen. The exhaust side of the piston is always the side to get damaged simply because its the hottest.
  11. Hi, to detonate that much something is way off. If your mixture is close then it could be a CDI fault, ive seen this quite a few times over the years developing 2t mx engines. Also do you know if the flywheel is on a taper or a woodruff key? Cheers
  12. Hi, I dont have an electric start. Cheers
