Be sure to wear your PFD when you hit the gas. This your Flyer with the "little" motor, right?

Judicious throttle application, I have several vehicles that cannot be full throttled from a dead stop, 3200# Mustang Cobra with 500 rear wheel HP & 500 pounds of torque to the rear wheels won't put up with full throttle from a stop unless you just like the smell of tire smoke B)

Frankie is home :biggrin:

The good news is this motor only out weighs the 35 by less than 10 pounds, the 50 is 120 pounds without the cowls which are a very lightweight composite, I will weight them later but my guess is between 10 to 15 pounds, still brings it in under 140 pounds.

Man this thing looks like a potent package, your creativity and talent are truly impressive.

I'm sad we missed you at Arrowhead yesterday, I really wanted to hear about this motor in person, hope you're having a good time!

That is going to be a fun ride! Your Flyer will be aptly named.
