Sorry to say there are not any updates on the o-320 yet. I do know that there are a few out there flying. I'm curious myself, but here's what I can tell you. I've talked with the Zenith people and have been told this engine is flying around on several of their airplanes (ch750) and that they do quite well. I've also noticed that the o-200's do not do well with floats. Jan from Viking Aircraft seems to have developed a great solution for a reasonably priced light weight engine that is very powerful. UL is an engine that rotates slower and makes reasonable good power. My airplane should be running in about a year as I am on the pay as you go plan. hope that helps.

any reports yet with the O-320?  I am just starting my build, but looking towards the future for the best engine and really like the O-320.  In fact that is what I have in another aircraft now.  I am just concerned that the O-200 will be too little HP and the UL powered doesn't have a long enough track record.

O-235 is a very successful engine for the 750. Several Builders are using and flying that engine.
