The engine was $21,000 and the complete forward firewall including mount, cowl, propeller, and everything to make it run (less battery) was $5800. Expensive compared to some, but it seems to have a good track record - I think Roger has a couple thousand hours on the one they have in the factory Cruzer. My stol plane weighed in at 807lbs. and I certified it at 1440lbs gross. I can fill my tanks (30 gallons), take a 250lb passenger and the plane leaps
off the runway. I can be 500agl by the time at the end of our 3200’ runway so it has plenty of power for the plane. I suppose the Viking will do the same.
