  • What's the applicability for the Gearbox Vent update shown in the video?

    • Anyone that has oil going into the canister/bottle. It gets rid of the catch tank and vents into the atmosphere. -Alissa

    • Just to clarify, what you call the canister/bottle, is this the new round aluminum canister Viking has been providing, or does it include the plastic reservoir we currently have for filling and venting the gearbox?

    • No external tank of any type needed.  Vents directly to the atmosphere

  • Looking for anyone flying a Kitfox w/ the Viking 130

  • Building my amazing RV-12 aircraft in Coeur d'Alene Idaho!
    ...and excited to get my new Viking 130 installed this winter!

    • Thank you for posting.  Keep it up as you progress

    1. There is a wire shown that goes from the positive buss to terminal #30 on the starter relay. It shows a 20A circuit breaker (I did not see this CB in the video)..Correct? What AWG wire should I use (14 AWG)?

    - The 20 A fuse is nice to have 

    - Yes, 14 or16 AWG is heavy enough

    2. There is a wire shown that goes from the positive buss to the B(Bat) terminal on the ignition switch. What AWG wire should I use (18 AWG)?

    - Yes

    3. There is a wire shown that goes from the I(IGN) terminal on the ignition switch to the alternator. Is this the yellow/black strip wire from the wire harness bundle as stated in the Video or is this another wire?

    - It is the same wire.  This is where you also have the option to add a separate switch for the alternator, and onbly use the key to crank the engine.  

    4. There is a wire shown that goes from the S (center terminal?) on the ignition switch to terminal 86 on the starter relay. What AWG wire should I use (18 AWG)?

    - 18 AWG is perfect

    5. There is a label "5A breaker" just below the 18AWG wire that goes from the I(IGN) terminal on the ignition switch to the alternator. What is this breaker in reference to? I don't see an accompanying CB symbol shown on the diagram.

    - I don't use a fuse / breaker here but some would like to see everything fused.

    6. There is a 8 AWG wire shown that goes from the output side of the 60A fuse to the Alternator (this is the only 8 AWG wire used) . Would it be OK to use 6 AWG wire since I have the wire and terminal rings or should I use the 8 AWG and get more wire and terminal rings?

    - You can use the 6 AWG

    7. There is a wire that goes from the input side of the 60A fuse to the starter. What AWG wire should I use (14 AWG)? Also, how is the wire protected if the starter pulls too much current since there is not any fuse/CB in this wire?

    - The wire you mention is the 6 AWG wire from the batteries.  It has to go all the way to the starter.  The styarter can draw up to 200A during cranking and is typically not fused.  

    8. According to the diagram, a 14 AWG wire going from terminal #87 on the starter relay to the starter. According to the video, the wire marked "starter relay" from the wiring harness bundle is connected to terminal 87. I assume therefore that there is another wire already in the wiring harness that goes to the starter. Is this correct?

    - Yes, you should find a wire labelled starter, to use for this

    9. According to the diagram, a 18 AWG wire going from the I(IGN) terminal on the ignition switch to the alternator. According to the video, the yellow/black strip wire from the wire harness bundle connects to the I(IGN) terminal. I assume therefore that there is another wire already in the wiring harness that goes to the alternator that "turns alternator on/off" when the key switch is activated. Is this correct?

    - The Yellow / black wire is used for this.  Some of these wires are already in the wire loom.  You don't need additional wires for those that already exist.

VIKING 130 OR CONTINENTAL 0-200

When you install an O-200 engine, or a Viking 130 aircraft engine, the weight of the aircraft will be about the same.

HOWEVER

  • You will have 30 more HP and close to 100% more static thrust.  
  • You will have a 2018 model Honda, usually built in America - not a 1945 design now sold to China
  • You will have 5,000 Honda dealerships from where you can get parts.  
  • You will have DIRECT, into the cylinders, fuel injection.  No carburetor anywhere
  • You will pay much less for much more.

"There is not.  However, be sure you reach your normal RPM early in the takeoff roll.  If not, abort."

"I believe the question for Viking would be, is there any reason that a engine run-up is necessary beyond 3,500 rpm prior to takeoff?
