Superstol xl with O-320

Postby ls6pj » Sat Jan 27, 2018 4:51 am

Hi everybody,
New on the forum and waiting for the kit to arrive. I was minding my business flying the glasair 3 that i built 5 years ago when somebody gave me an O-320 and prop with 450 hrs on it.
What to do.....
there must be builders with the same engine on the superstol and i would like to hear from you to listen to all the tips you may want to share. Looking forward to do some building again, i’d like the aircraft to be as close to perfection as i can.
Thanks and greetings from the south of France.

I'm building a SuperSTOL XL with a Titan 180 engine with Wallen Aircraft LLC, we are doing a Builders assist program.

Also, if you haven't added your Names and projects to the Just Aircraft Map, here is the link to the map of owners and builders. You can add it for the Type Of Aircraft you have SuperSTOL or SuperSTOL XL.

Welcome Paul J. You have come to the correct place for information On your Superstol XL. As you know the XL was designed for the heaver engines. I think UL Power's 390IS was one of the first used. Then came the Triton OX340. That seems to be the choice these days for the XL. BUT since you already have a free engine, that weighs about the same as these I have listed, go right ahead and put it on. I have not heard of anyone using a stock Lycoming on a Superstol or SS XL. I have heard of a couple of builders using Continental O-200s on Highlanders. If you use the search function on Page 1 (near top Left) you will find references to those builds.

Do not hesitate asking question here. Everyone is quite helpful.

Again Welcome!

Congratulations on ordering your kit & getting an O320 at a really good deal. I’m kind of envious, my Titan was kind of expensive. The deal on the O320 will open the door for a lot of other parts that will be needed. I’ll have to look for you on the map.

Yippeee ! Kit arrived and the ailerons and flaps are finished. Happy with the quality of the kit but we redid the cad plating on all the brackets. But that manual..........and the drawings could do with some corrections as well. But overall Id recommend buying one without a doubt.
