So I received a message from a builder advising me of his engine choices for the 701. I asked about the Raven 1.3 conversion and I haven't gotten feedback to the choice. The wieght, next to the Jabiru, is the closest to the Rotax 912S. The Rotax 912S is the preferred egine choice but is also the most spendy. I wanted to open up a discussion on powerplants for the 701. I want to know why not the Raven 1.3 or tell me what would be a good replacement and light on weight replacement for the Rotax 912S.
