It has met or exceeded our performance expectations, having been run in our engine test cell from May of thru March ofand flown these past five months in Sonex Sport Acro NSX. I am having am absolute blast flying it! Two Sensenich fixed-pitch propeller options are being offered for AeroVee Turbo installations on Sonex aircraft. A inch diameter x inch pitch prop is intended for those wishing to maximize climb performance while still retaining a very-respectable mph TAS cruise capability at 8, feet.
The AeroVee Turbo is intended for use with fixed-pitch or ground-adjustable propellers, keeping the package Sport Pilot eligible by not requiring a constant-speed prop. However, losses are not nearly as drastic as those with a normally-aspirated engine.
This allows the cruise speed of an AeroVee Turbo in a Sonex aircraft at altitude to eclipse the performance of the hp Jabiru engine.

The first time I ran the engine a week ago the throttle was stuck with the engine running and I was getting strange numbers on my Xtreme.
So I shut down the engine. I noticed that with the engine off the throttle would stick a little when you first started moving it from the idle position forward. I did a post to the forum about the Xtreme settings and got a great response Thanks Mike. I setup my Xtreme with the settings from Mike's response and today the readings I got appear to be correct.
I first wanted to check if the bend in the cable might be too much. So I disconnected the cable at the throttle and pulled it out of the firewall.
I held the cable straight out in front of the aero injector. There still was the sticking when first moving the cable from the idle position. Next I took the aero injector apart to see if anything was in the area of the slide. The area was clean and free of any debris. The slide would stick a little when I would move it with my finger. I removed the needle. I tried polishing the needle a little.Aerovee Secondary Ignition Tool
I put the needle back. The slide seemed to then move smoothly. So I put everything back together. The throttle moves smoothly with out the engine running. So today I was able to run the engine for a second time.Please note that links on older archive pages are often not active. These pages serve purely as an informational archive.

Top of Page.The AeroConversions Throttle Quadrant, designed to work with the AeroConversions AeroInjector and other carburetors, is an attractive, simple and easy to install throttle quadrant giving the sport pilot positive and precise throttle control at a competitive price. Left-Hand and Right-Hand Throttle Quadrants are available to provide dual, slaved throttle control on both cockpit walls with one engine control output from the LH quadrant.
Designed for use in a center-cockpit control column, The Throttle Quadrant ST features a placarded backing plate, angled control arm for instrument panel clearance, and dual control grips for authoritative control from both sides of the cockpit. Designed specifically for the AeroInjector, AeroConversions Throttle Quadrants may also be used with any other carburetor equipped for reversing pull-throttle actuation.
Customers may optionally attach external linkage to a hole provided in the upper throttle arm to convert the AeroConversions Throttle Quadrant to a non-reversing control. The Throttle Quadrant features an adjustable friction knob and an optional push-pull mixture control bracket, integrated pull cable-end fitting, and an open-backed design for easy installation and mounting.
Maximum throttle arm throw for both reversing and non-reversing attach points is 39mm. The Aeroconversions Throttle Quadrant includes the optional mixture control bracket, a inch throttle cable assembly and cable adjusters along with installation instructions which are written with enough general information to accommodate installation in a wide range of aircraft.

What advantages does this "pull-type" set-up offer over the "push-type" set-up in the AeroCarb? The pull set-up offers a longer throttle travel than the push-pull cable set-up, which has been a common request from users of the AeroCarb predesessor to the AeroInjector.
I have an AeroCarb predecessor to the AeroInjector. Is it compatible with the AeroConversions Throttle Quadrants? All AeroCarbs manufactured with serial numbers newer than those in the following table are equipped for "IP" Internal Pull actuation, and therefore may be used with a reversing throttle quadrant like AeroConversions Throttle Quadrants.
If your carb is older than the listed serial numbers, you will need to purchase an AeroInjector. What kind of modifications do I have to make to a flying Sonex, Waiex, or Xenos in order to install this quadrant? The throttle cable is replaced by the cable and housing provided with the Throttle Quadrant. We also moved the canopy latch handle aft to clear the throttle quadrant handle.
