http://www.ultralightflyer.com – Valley Engineering, Culver Props, Swing Wing II, VW aircraft engine conversion and reduction drive. Dan Johnson talks to Alaina Lewis from Culver Props about Valley Engineering’s legal part 103 ultralight aircraft the Backyard Flyer and their new two place experimental aircraft during the E.A.A.’s Airventure convention.
The Backyard Flyer is usually powered by a four stroke, twin cylinder modified Generac engine. While it is a very fuel efficient and reliable engine it is also heavy.
The Hirth F23 on the other hand is considerably lighter, but still comes with electric start and a generating system. Performance has to be seen to be believed! The craft is airborne in as little as 50 feet and climbs out at well over 1,000 per minute.
Cruise still comes in at the legal ultralight speed limit, by the use of prop and or a throttle governing system. The Backyard Flyer features welded aluminum construction, with each craft hand built. The wing swings for ease of storage and transportation.
The Backyard Flyer is available in both a taildragger and tri-gear version and now as a two place experimental aircraft in a taildragger configuration.
