Default Which engine 11/2006 closed and no votes?

I'd like to start a poll on engine choice, just to see what the numbers are.

Note that the poll will show who voted for what.

Just to keep it clear you only get 1 choice. If you're unsure, pick the one that's top of your list right now. If you'd like another engine type added, let me know.

OK, I closed the other thread and duped it and deleted all posts except the first one from john that started the old one, system requires that the first post stays.

before i open this poll - tell me what to add to it to make it more complete

OMG, I didn't realize there are so many engine options available to cause in-flight failures in experimental aircrafts.

The only thing worst than proving a new airframe is proving a new airframe and an engine SIMULTANEOUSLY!

I must be getting old because I'm feeling very mortal, maybe I should build a glider instead!

Will this poll be open before the real voting day, next Tuesday??

We have early voting here in Louisiana (I voted last Friday). BTW, why wasn't "rubber band" in the mix???

Mike, I think we're (you're) trying to cover too many bases here. The number of permutations gets too long. I think it would be more useful for this poll to discover which basic engine is being used (or strongly considered) rather than what you're going to hang on it in terms of turbo, supercharger, EFI, carbie, etc. Perhaps that should be a seperate poll.

Since rotary was the leading choice by far in the previous poll it makes sense (to me) to break it down a bit. The Renesis choice has its own set of challenges, so yes, I think it deserves an individual listing.

I'd suggest:

Rotary 13B
Rotary 13B REW
Renesis

Did you see my post, Mike. The model of 13B is important information. (2nd gen, 3rd gen or Renesis). Yes, the 20b should be on there too. Turbo's can be added later, taken off etc. etc. Its pretty hard to change the base engine.

Similarly it might be useful to know WHICH Lycoming. 320, 360, 360IO, 540 etc.

If you're going to have the XP-400 you should have the XP-360 too.

Default Rockets?

Don't forget rockets! It is a "proven" powerplant now (as long as an 8 mile trip suits you) and there will be a lot of them flying soon.
