Looks beautiful! Sounds beautiful! Runs powerful!!

I am still feeling the rush of a successful first flight of "Little Stearman" powered by a beautiful R2800! My project received its airworthiness certificate on June 26th - but with the arrival of kids and grandkids I couldn't get time to concentrate on the first flight until yesterday morning, July 11th. I had done much taxi testing, but was totally unprepared for the smooth and rapid acceleration as I advanced the throttle with no brakes or tie-down. I'll bet I was off the ground in 250 to 300 feet. The engine ran perfectly - smooth as glass, with PLENTY of power. I flew for about a half an hour before landing with a huge grin on my face! I have attached a couple of pictures - but I still have to get some close-up flight photos. There were many comments of those on the ground of how nice that radial looked and sounded on this project. I have some routine trim adjustments to make - and then I'll get some in-flight photos from a chase plane. The attached photos give you an idea of how the aircraft looks on the ground - and then some long distance take-off photos of the first flight.

Amazing product!

I have a Kitfox Classic IV with a Rotec R2800 on the nose. I can't tell you how much I have enjoyed that engine since I first got it. The folks at Rotec have been absolutely outstanding to work with any time there has been any questions or issues that have arose. They have always contacted me promptly with answers to any questions or concerns I had, and have always shown the utmost in professionalism and respect in their dealings with me. I have been in the aviation industry for nearly 40 years now and have dealt with manufacturers of piston engines, turbo prop engines and jet engines. Without any doubt these guys rank right up there with the best of them for product support. This little motor is their passion. Every time I hear someone who references the negative stuff on the internet, I have to pause and remember how many negative comments I have heard about "those damned Lycoming, Continental or even Rotax engines!" If you are thinking about purchasing a Rotec and are concerned about their support... put your mind at ease. These guys have a great product that runs smooth, sounds outstanding, has plenty of power and absolutely has all the aesthetic qualities the others wish they had. Guaranteed you will not draw a crowd to look at your new "Brand X" motor like you will with the Rotec Radial!
