And there it is, the ULPower UL350i. Just ordered straight from Belgium. I could write a really long list of all the benefits of ULPower vs VW conversion (more HP, factory built, FADEC, super high quality etc etc), but the truth is I failed to obtain the needed trust in the Aerovee to use it in an aircraft that needs the engine running to fly.
The engine comes with everything needed. Engine mount is ordered from Kaolin in the USA. There will be some glass fiber work on the cowling, but I just have to accept that as a part of the equation. Really looking forward to mount this on the nose :-)
The Aerovee? The engine will probably work just fine, but the resell value is zero. Maybe a Xenos later on? I always wanted a motorglider. But not right now. Pri 1 is to get this Onex flying :-)
