Default Smart CDI diesel engine

Hi group,

can someone please tell me whether efforts are on the way already to
turn the Smart CDI diesel engine into an aircraft engine? I'm looking
for something (preferably a diesel) in the 80HP range. Maximum weight
should be appr. 75 Kg (165 lb). It looks to me the larger of the
Smart CDI's might fit the bill.

thanks!

I have been hunting for a 50 to 80 HP diesel for over a year. The Zoche
looked good but I doubt if they will ever make it into production. If
you find another one, I want one!!!!!!!

Well, there is one, but, it comes with a whole kitplane attached to it ;-)
Take a look at the Dutch RangeR, the offspring of the Dieselis, at:

Not a bad deal at all, considering what you get for its suggested price
of EUR 40.000.

Hans,
I looked at the motor you are talking about on the internet. It appears
that the diesel motor is running 40 hp vs your 80.
all the best.
The gas fired versions are doing 80 tho and have dual ignition built
into em.
Looks promising.

Morgan and John,
If you can do with just 50HP, Daihatsu has a jewel of a 659 cc 2-cycle
common-rail turbodiesel. I don't know, however, if it's available
outside Japan. These sophisticated engines sometimes are only available
in the domestic market, in K-cars.

The diesel engine subject came up at the airport today. One of the guys
said that diesels put high stress on the propeller during the power stroke.
Don't know if this is true but it is worth looking into if you are
considering using one.
