Brian,
I've flown all kinds of home builts and ultralights, etc. When I saw the new looking 157's on this bird I wondered about reliability. After all........ We read here on FG all the "I'm having issues" with this, that or the other when it concerns our power plants. Are 3W's and DA's certified for man carrying use? Just wondering out loud........

It's not a certified plane, you can run whatever you want on it.

Ryan,
Would you trust it? I've seen one of these things fly and they have some zip to them. The only difference was that the one I saw had some big Zenoahs on it similar to an ultralight. I've trusted those on a Weedhopper and never had a deadstick. Just curious what you guys think.....

Me, trust a 3W in a full scale? BWAHAHAHAHAHA

Personally I would use what has been proven to work in one of these planes.

I wouldnt fly it just because it has 3w's, its probably for sale because his hands are hurting from prop kick backs..

With a pair of turbines on it Id rock it!

I guess another thing that would concern a PIC is that ignition module hanging out in the breeze like that........ Or maybe a bird strike in that thing! "Hey Sulley! You wanna go to that Jersey airport or what?" "No thanks......... I'll just stay on the ground!" LOL! Oh well......... There's always an airstart if you have enough altitude.

Defintely a very bad choice for engines.

Only a fool would trust their life to single ingnition system.

The engine mounts and the ignition bracketing is not good.

At the very least a 200 CC with dual spark ignition systems both sides.

Hmm, wonder if we can talk DA into a dual ignition..

But two jetcats on there would be awesome, or better yet, 8 saito's
