Raven Inverted Oil

Hi all

Does anyone have any experience with the Raven inverted oil system? Is it a good quality kit? Easy to install?

I have an RV8 with IO360-C1C6. Hoping it won't be too traumatic an install!

Any experiences/horror stories gratefully received!

Cheers

Rob

RV8 Canopy Draft

Morning all

My RV8 has finally taken to the skies and we have a horrendous draft coming from the rear of the canopy! The British winter is imminent and I don't want to get wet or frozen to death! :lol:

Has anyone else had this problem, and how did you fix it?

Many thanks for any suggestions!

Has anyone machined a sump to change from rearward to forward facing induction? If so, do you have any details/p...

Thanks for the picture Mike. I guess I'd need a fairly long arm if I mount it to the top of the roll bar for the iPad to sit below it.

Thanks for the reply Mike, appreciate the advice.

Do you think that one of those cylindrical bar attachments will hold the mount and iPad rigidly?

Cheers

Polishing rather than painting

RV8 Range

Hi all My '8 is creeping ever closer to completion in the UK and shortly after that I'm hoping to fly it to the Middle East as I'm working here for a few years. I have an IO-360 200hp motor and it will be a Hartzell prop as supplied by Vans. My question is, what sort of range are you guys getting wi...

Well unfortunately Sunstate Aviation are a no-go; Unfortunately, we have made the decision a few months back to discontinue aircraft rental for non-instructional purposes as that part of our operation was beginning to have a negative impact on our flight training operations The search continues........

I work in Doha Radar, hope you had a delay free arrival & departure! (Although unlikely.....too many aeroplanes & only 1 runway!) Shame I couldn't have bought you a beer between flights..........if only they sold it in the airport! :bang:
