LF 26 Update 3

Hello again

now it is time. The Engine for the Customer did arrive directly from Manufacturer. In Exchange the Dummy-Engine goes to the next Client.

A good solution is the Starter which now resides on Top of the Engine, not the rear.

Now we are waiting on the Engine-Mount, which will arrive soon

Another 109 airborne

Hello again and Horrido

A Me 109 has her rebirth. These are the first Pictures worldwide of the Plane after her Conversion to a Suzuki Motorcycle Engine. She now has a unique Feature: The Builder has left the Gear on the Engine, so he could change Reducer on Griund and in Flight.

LF 26 Update 2

Hello again.

Now we have integrated the Test-Mount and the first Tests are positive. As the Mount was fitted for the Jabiru, it doesnt fit the LF26 right out of the Box. By now we are checking the right Measures and sticking it in CAD to get the first perfekt Mount for this Me 109.

Looks good, right?

LF 26 Update 1

The LF 26 (D-Motor) from Belgium is a small, compact Engine, which will fit nearly perfect into the Me 109.

The Weight of the installed Engine with Fluids is, depending on the Installation, around 56 to 58 kg.
Not included the Engine Mount and Propeller. Actual he has a TBO of 1500 h and the Mounts are identic to the Jabiru 2200.
Thats the nManufacturers Facts. We could prove today, that the Engine is lighter than the other Engines we had in Tests since 2006.
As we had tested the Jabiru 2200 a couple of Years ago we have a Mount to adopt for th LF26.
Here are the first Results:

  • lf26d
  • lf26e
More to come.
