Electric trim kit for trike wings.
Yamaha Genesis engines converted with SPG-4 and KOOLprop.
Suzuki G13BB with our gearbox conversion kits and KOOLprops on airboats.
Suzuki G13BB + SPG3 conversion for Rans S-6 plane. This is a good exampla how G13BB engine can be installed under Rotax 912 or Lycoming flat cowling.

Trikes flying in Canada with G10 and in Russia with Honda Fit (pure adrenaline from 1.20)
"Simple" photo gallery
I decided to start this "simple gallery" because many people say me that they can't find enough info and pictures about for example autoconverted engines on conventional
pusher airplanes, or gyrocopters. I understand, it can be interesting, but I don't install GEO-Subaru engines on planes or gyros. I build trikes. My clients do it, I put some pictures
at ENGINE or FEEDBACK pages, but I can't use all pictures from my clients. I often get questions like "is it possible for me to install G10 on a Challenger 2M or not?"
Please don't ask me such questions. For me - yes I can, for you - I don't know! I don't know your skills and ablities. Experimental aircraft project is YOUR project! So I decided to make a small "depot"
of pictures which can be interesting to potential builders. Maybe you can find some elements of design (motormounts, radiators etc), maybe the fact that somebody made it before
will help youbto do something simular. Click on small icons and look at the pictures. If you have questions - ask me!

Rescue Evacuation 3-place trike with 100HP GEO-Suzuki engine and some other 3-place trikes
Russian trikers have a lot of work experience. They do agro spraying, pipeline patrol, aero photography, beach flying, take skydivers up etc. There are military special trikes.
From the end of 2008 a Rescue Evacuation Vehicle (REV), 3-place trike was officially accepted by Russian Emergency Situation ministry for work at remote
areas (in fact most of Russian areas in Siberia are remotes) together with helicopters. The Pilot can fly with Paramedic to Patient, and even come back with
Patient if necessary. Before placing the order for a serial REV, Russian officials tested different aircraft engines. The winner became 100HP 4-stroke G13BB with SPG2-3
and KOOLprop. Reliability, high power, low cost, low grade fuel acceptability, fuel efficiency, throttle response, low maintenance, no any adjustment depends on the weather
or altitude, stable start and running at low temp - Geo-Suzuki is #1 here. This engine is probably the most popular trike engine there.
Some other samples of 3-place trikes used in Russia and Ukraine. "Commando" usually made with Honda and Suzuki-GEO. 3-place float trikes - in production with Rotax, Suzuki, Subaru, BMW.
Sun and Fun 2004. Great show in Florida!
A lot of Sun, Fun, Flying and Talking. This magnificient fiesta gave me so much energy for all the year.
It was also a good business experience. We showed KLASS and Eagle trikes in our boot. It was our first but very successful year. We sold 2 trikes (all we had "for sale"),
got some orders and new students for my partners (Tampabay Aerosport trike school). Look some pictures from this event.
It's me. My (and my partners') trikes and our booth.
Our paradise - ultralight "paradise sity" as we, ultralight birds, were happy to see it.
Fauna in Florida showed us a lot of surprises. Have you ever seen this beast before? Looks like he also wants to fly...
Why not! We took any interested person up for free...
...so one of our trikes was up almost all the day. Most time it was my KLASS-GEO...
...but Eagle flew there too. I had one wing for both trikes.
These are my partners and distributors in Florida. Abid+Rob=Tampabay Aerosport
We worked hard together all the week in our booth crowded with interested people. I was happy to see so much interest to our trikes.
American people like all colors of planes about equally but looks like they like white stars and red strips more equally than something else.
Do you like this smallest VTOL jet?
Of cource, it was said to as : "No low pass over the strip". We didn't do it... Almost.
I only wanted to see this originally painted Quicksilver closer.
Pilots' briefing...or old scouts' party? The weather was fine all the week and all our daily briefings were full of enthusiasm.
We flew almost all the week. It wasn't easy. I was getting a lot of Florida Midday Thermal Turbulence kicks (it was Sun)+ vortex turbulence from up to 20 aircraft flying the same small UL pattern (it was Fun).
Only the last day of exhibition my wife and I decided to go and look around. It was really impossible to see all exposition for one day. If you want to come next year - try to come for a whole week
Unfortunately, even this great event has his end. I am sure I'll be back at Sun and Fun 2005. Meet me there next year!
My friends and their aircraft.
With God's blessing! Preparations for the first test flight.
A good quality trikes from Taganrog.
Russia as birds see it.
My French pictures.
Our road and flight carriers.
Mont Saint Michel from land and air.
I love the sunsets and evening flights!
Agricultural application ultralight planes and trikes.
A very good quality side-by-side trike from Kazan.
One of Russian Geo-Suzuki air-conversion variants.
Extremely beautiful flights in Himalai mountains.
The attitude is 3000-5000meters (10000-16000ft)!
Trike with a closed cockpit and skis for winter flights.
Trikes? With four wheels??? Why not!
I just love these pictures.
Biplane with the second deltawing.
Look at the wing. No kingpost, no struts...
4-place 4-wheel "trike" monster. It flys, trust me!
If you can't cross a ditch, try to jump! If you still can't - fly it over!!!
Some time ago one guy from India bought a set of Eagle trike plans. From this moment they built several Eagle
trikes included 3-place trike. They modified my design to use local materials, used X-17 wings and converted Suzuki engines.
I like their approach to design and flying. Look at some of the pictures David shared with me!
