The jabiru is easier to maintain than the rotax. I attended a jabiru workshop in Arizona(USA). there a good and bad about any engine you install. Rotax doesn't allow

you to do anything to their motor. I am not putting down rotax. I am installing a 2200 Jab in my 701. The jab is lighter than the EA-81. jab is 139 lbs complete.

Hi Phil,
