Thread: V6 STOL Plans

    Default V6 STOL Plans

    Hi all,
    For those interested, here are the V6 STOL Drawings, you can get them here: http://netmanifold.com/v6stol/


    I figure its good information for those interested in increasing the wingspan of their experimental short wings.

    Did they ever get that engine reliable? As with most of those car conversions they never seem to make a truly usable powerplant, too heavy, not enough power, too many revs.

    I'm not sure about the v6 engine...I'm sticking with my Lycoming. I'm really only interested in these plans for the wing extension.

    I actually bought a 3.8 Ford V6 that had over 100 hours flying on it. I was going to use it in my project. But the more I read and heard, the general feeling was: "if you like to tinker - put an auto engine in your plane; if you like to fly - put an aircraft engine in your plane". I sold the V6 and will use a Lyc. when my project is ready.
