I flew the SeaRey at Oskosh last summer. I have NEVER had any more fun (with my clothes on). I was ready to go for it but I plan to operate my CH750 from my farm and the SeaRey would be a questionable fit. They recently hired a german engineer and I think he will clean up the design. It is well proven. A friend of mine bought a Remos with a 912uls. He likes it but cannot maintain it because it is a SLSA. Do you maintain your Rotax? Have you been to their school?
That is a great question. I have been researching engines. Lycoming has just announced a new engine the IO-233. It is fuel injected (IO), 200 lbs, 2400 tbo, 100hp continuous, and 116 hp for 5 min. I hope to eventually put my plane on amphib floats. This is the engine I am leaning toward, but I have not made any firm decision.
My name is Tom Palmer I live in Shelbyville Ky. I was very interested in you project and how your builder assist company. I am building the CH750 and have the tail done. (lots to do) I hope to meet you down the road.
