I would love to have a Subie engine in it. Obviously, we've got a long way to go (since we've just ordered the wing kit), and John seems to be enjoying researching every single option out there; so the jury is still out on Subie.

So what is John leaning towards?? Or its too far down the road to look into yet. I remember Volkswagon and Corvair engines being used, too. But that stuff is getting a bit old. If you lean towards classic engines though, one of them would prob work. Mike

He keeps speaking the word "Lycoming", followed by a bunch of Tim Taylor sounds. :lol:

Lycoming is a well known engine, been around forever. I don't know much about it though. Seen a bunch of them at EAA a few weeks ago. Its amazing how something so small can produce enough power to keep an airplane in the air!! Mike

But a certified Lyco is EXPENSIVE! One of the great things about homebuilts is flexibility on the engine choice. Although insurance companies might have a different take on that. I seem to remember seeing a turboprop application on an RV....
