Help! I need someone to give me A little advice. I ordered a ch650 kit so while I wait for delivery day I have been online researching engine choices. So is 100HP enough or do I need 130HP should I go carburated or fuel injection, Stay traditional opposed or maybe A gear reduction unit with a auto conversion. I see so many choices out there, I just want to be as safe as I can and as a new pilot I need some good advice.
