I have a 701 with a Viking 115 hp engine and it empty weight is 280 kg. 614lbs.

Hello
thank you very much for your analysis
with French regulations, you must have a CH710 with an empty weight of less than 315 kg. Explain my question.
cordially

An O200 is going to be pretty heavy for a 701. For example. Jon Croke swapped out his O200 for a Viking 130 and it has a similar installation weight and this is on a 750. Our 130 on a 701 has to have lead in the tail because it would be nose heavy. Just speaking as to what we know in real world experience. I think more viable options are Viking 90, Rotax and I believe Jabiru is lighter as well. -Alissa
