Avid Flyer C model, and Mk IV
Here are some images an installation of the HKS 700E in the Avid Flyer
Model C. Prior to this change, the owner (a professional pilot)
had become increasingly uncomfortable flying behind the 65 HP Rotax 582
2 stroke engine, especially with passengers. So, this is yet one more instance
where the pilot prefers to give up some of the power all of the time rather
than all power some of the time.
The Avid presents a fairly straight forward installation. Pictured
here, with up Carbs and Ignition components mounted on the firewall.
Alternatively, the carbs can be mounted low and to the rear and the Ignition
can be mounted on the engine. This installation also uses a custom exhaust
system. You are welcome to phone or email to discuss potential propeller
and gear ratio concerns.
The next images are of the installation that evolved from the one above.
This is on an Avid Mk IV, and is available presently (2008) as a package.
Included are: engine, oil tank, mount, oil cooler, with mounting, pre made
custom oil lines with fittings, custom exhaust, etc. Our Avid package actually
has become one of the most complete and economical HKS conversions.
