How expensive is Jet A vs AvGas?
No valvetrain or ignition systems to maintain, heads are integral to the cylinder cases so no headgaskets/bolts to be concerned with. You do have the supercharger to maintain on the DH.
I looked over their Velocity when I was at Oshkosh in 2005.
I'm following their progress as best I can. By the time I need to decide on an engine I'm hoping there will be some at/near 2000hrs. Same for a Renesis rotary. Right now I'm leaning towards a 13b with a turbo.
