Hi All:

I just posted this video of my Tricycle Kitfox II flying in Puerto Rico island.  You can see lakes, rivers, sea, mountains, cities and highways in a 20 minutes flight. Hope you like it.

What a great video. Beautiful scenery!

I've never seen landing gear like that. Is that a modified Grove or total custom job?

Ron:

I bought this plane originally in 1997. I was the third owner. It was TD and had a gray head 582. I flew it until 2004. At that time I bought a Jabiru 2200 and the FWF kit to install it in the Kitfox. Since the plane was at that time in need for a complete restoration, I decided to sell the plane to a friend, and install the Jabiru engine in a new plane. Since this happen after Skystar closed, and before John McBean took over Kitfox factory, I bought a Rans S6.

My friend (Noel) decided that he wanted a tricycle plane and, with support from this list (pictures and tech info provided mainly by Steve Wilson and Dave from Ontario, Canada), made the conversion using a Rans S-12 nose gear. In addition, switched to a Grove main gear.

Last summer, my friend had to quit flying due to medical issues, and I bought the Kitfox back in a partnership with a common friend of us (Henry). At that time, the new blue head 582 had 4 hours.

I love Kitfoxes, particularly the folding wings. I missed so much that tailwheel Smile

It is a Grove. The previous owner decided to add those aluminums tubes for support.

Ron, Don't even think about modifing your plane like Jose's. You don't know how to fly in Spanish!

Hey Jose'
What did you use to shoot the video? I've been thinking about a
camera for my Model 7.

Roger:

I used a GroPro Hero 2 Motorsports. This was the very first time I used it. I ordered it from GoPro (at) $300 (separately (at) $25 ([email]separately(at)$25[/email])) to attach it to the wing strut tube (no fairing). For struts with farings there are Curved Adhesive Mounts (included). Highly recommended!
