Damn. That is more than twice as expensive as 912 ULS - combine that with +50 lbs penalty ... I don't know.
I hear you. I think for aircraft like the Sling 4, this will be a perfect fit. I also think there are some SLSA taildragger’s that could use this engine with great performance results, especially where I’m from in Idaho! I would argue this engine will give the Titan a run for its money at high density altitudes! As for the rest of the SLSA fleet, it’s going to be hard to make it work within the LSA weight limits.
It’s just surprising how much more power it offers over the 912 ULS and maintains that power to an insane altitude.
