Pete Plumb of Pegasus Power will exhibit his new "half O-200" engine kit, the Pegasus DP-1 O-100, in the Aeromarine-LSA booth at Paradise City during Sun 'n Fun. The air-cooled, direct-drive, four-stroke DP-1 weighs 106 pounds and produces 60 horsepower. It uses many off-the-shelf O-200 parts.
Chip Erwin of Aeromarine-LSA noted that he plans to power his single-place Merlin personal sport aircraft using this engine. "It seems like the Pegasus O-100 might be an excellent choice for the Merlin," he said.
You can see both the Merlin PSA and the Pegasus O-100 at the Aeromarine booth #52 in Paradise City. Plumb will run the engine daily on the Paradise City flight line. Check in at the booth for times. For more information, visit flypegasuspower.com or aeromarine-lsa.com.
