Default RV flying in Germany, photo and video proof.

Posting for a very dear friend;

RV-7 Tobias Treichel, RV-6 Peter Grievner and Herbert Fluck, RV-7A Klaus-Peter Morhard.




And if all the salty food this weekend didn?t make you thirsty, this short and very fun video of Herman in his imaculate RV-8 will for sure!
https://youtu.be/qD72rP11QvE

Please enjoy and give a thumbs up to our friends in Germany!

The man has good taste... it looks like a Warsteiner Dunkel.

Cheers, Hans

I'd like to see the out-takes for that video.

And what engine is in that RV-7A? Something inline, presumably?

Hermann is sending me some more video, but he?s not one to bore you with extra footage.

LOM in-line 4

So what LOM engine is this?

Do you have M332C supercharged version:
http://www.pistovemotory.cz/en/m332a-m332ak-m332c

OR do you have

Walter-LOM M332B
160 HP, 4 cylinder

M332B Engine Features:
SMALL FRONTAL AREA
INLINE - INVERTED
FOUR STROKE
DIRECT DRIVE
AIR COOLED
OVERHEAD CAMSHAFT
HEMISPHERICAL COMBUSTION SPACE
LOW SPECIFIC FUEL CONSUMPTION
ALT. COMPENSATED FUEL INJECTION
2,000 HOURS TBO
Horsepower, Max 160
Propeller Drive direct
No. of cylinders 4
Take-off (HP/RPM) 160/3000 (high RPM for rated HP)
Power to weight ratio 1.6 lb/HP
Cruise (HP/RPM) 120/2400
Frontal area 2.1 sq.ft.
Consumption @ 2400 RPM (US Gal./Hour) 7.6
Bore (Inches) 4.13
Recommended Fuel (Octane) 78 - 100 LL
Stroke (Inches) 4.53
Crankshaft Rotation c'clockwise
Displacement 242.8 cc. (cut & pasted and "cc" doesn't make sense)
TBO (HRS) 2000
Compression Ratio 6.3:1 (low compression)
Dry Weight (Lbs.) 250

It would be great to have performance numbers of the LOM powered RV from Deutschland, compared to Lycoming 320 or 360. .
