Bill

Are these engine or alternator/generator RPM?

Both are crank RPM, so around 1000 RPM crank RPM you'll get 15 amps, 1800 crank RPM you'll get 30 amps.

Bill,

Will you be at Osh 2022 with a sample of the Monkworkz Generator?

I can report the Monkworkz generator on my RV-8 works perfectly.

Default Works great

Just finished the install. Instructions are excellent and it does exactly what it is supposed to so. Support has also been excellent. Quite happy to replace my SD-8 with this.

Doubling down on the request for this from us RV-12 people who live in a perpetually weight-constrained world.

The output of the standard Rotax 912 ULS electrical system is limited at 15 amps, so a backup with significantly more power would be incredible.

An even better solution would be a mount which interfaces with the currently-empty vacuum pump mount on the back of the gearbox, since this would avoid having to modify the cowling to accommodate the belt drive. On the RV-12, this would need to take into account the pitot connection block, but that can probably be solved with a unified bracket which combines both functions.

Thanks for the reminder, this is for sure something I'd like to tackle. I'll send you a message.
