Glen,  I knew there would be a lot of interest, good luck and thanks for the reply. I was prepared to fly over to seal the deal as this gear is hard to get in Australia, especially an 801 setup.   Regards,  Keith McEwan.

Glen, Like a few other members, I am very interested in your fwf package. I am trying to ring you and talk direct from Australia so time differences make a problem. My email is if you get a chance to reply. Thanks , Keith McEwan.

Glen, very interested in your post on the FWF package. What is all included in the package. Engine, motor mount, cowlings, everything? You can email me directly at pa20(dot)cfbia(at)gmail(dot)com. Why are you swapping out this package, going for a larger engine? Curious. I think this is exactly what i am looking for.

Glen sorry for the delay in replying to your request. -- uploading photo's to this site I find is not so easy !
However I think I have managed two pics.
I built G-RWMW 2006/7 flew 100 plus hours till I was grounded 2008 with the flutter problem. I decided to go with the Zenair B mod but that took an additional year having to persuade the UK LAA for permission. G-MW is the only XL to be modified to B spec. in the UK.
My A/C is fitted with a Rotax 912S and probably unique in having a Constant speed prop.with reverse !My strip is 350yards but G-MW is of the ground in 100yards and landing can be very short if I use Reverse
My home is the west of Scotland and I have a choice of some beautiful Islands to fly to.
I will try to upload some pictures of my countryside
