Business or pleasure? Need some info that isn't written by a blogger who couldn't tell the difference between Japan and China?

For fun. Went to Japan, Korea, then Taiwan approx 4 days each.
Really didn't have enough time to explore everywhere in Japan, but I was able to go to some places I haven't visited before - Ghibli Museum, Tsukiji market, Asakusa)
Funny how I gained weight despite walking 5+ miles everyday

Yeah I walk till I am sore when in Japan but somehow put on weight. And of course the wallet is light.
So many small restaurants I wanted to send you to in Japan ~ and err, give me a first hand review of lol.
I gotta make my way to Taiwan one of these days.

Verner Radial sites

A last perusing of the ultralight area at EAA Airventure subjected a hidden gem and a harkening back to the old days of airplanes Sam Watrous, The us distributor for Verner Engines had two units on display. A three cylinder and a five cylinder demonstration of the Czech product.

Upon inspection these little engines are believed to be well built and ready for action. Sam said he discovered Verner engines while searching for a suitable power plant for his sister company, Scalebirds, Which builds WWII fighter styled reduced scale trial and error aircraft. Upon discussing Sam needs Verner suggested he become a dealer and he agreed.

When asked why he chose Verner over others Sam indicated the Verner was better suited to the size of his airframes hot spanish women and was more cost-effective than other similar output mills. Sam said the Verner product line fits the requirements of his airframe project better than other engines he considered, Including Rotax and VW based attractions, as they are more realistic and the radial planform integrates well into the airframes which were originally intended for radial engines. His first airplane of the queue will be an F6 F hellcat, A perfect choice for a radial engine.

The production includes a three cylinder, Two displacements of five cylinders and a seven cylinder one could use ranging from 42hp to 137hp. Scalebirds has repair and overhaul services for Verner Engines, Expecting to be the only US service center. The engines includes a 1 year/100 hour factory warranty. Technical aspects of the engine include internet based ignition on all units, Carbureted induction on the 3 cylinder and small 5 pump (the larger engines use fuel injection), Dry sump pressure lubrication. All engines include and integral pancake alternator putting out 15 20 amps.

When inquired about the unusually low power to weight ratio (close to 1:2, where many radials are around 1:1) Sam indicated that the engines are only developed for 7.5 to 1 compression setting ratio. this should result in very long durability and rugged reliability, And there is possible room for improvement by adventerous owners. Sam stated that Verner has no intentions in testing the engine to LSA designs and is content playing in the experimental pretty spanish girls amateur built arena. they make that beautiful pitter patter and throaty roar only a round engine can.
