  • Rotax Rick's 670 engine

    Do any of you wonderful pilots out there have any experience with the 670 engines built by Rotax Rick? I am l considering this engine for my gyro but there appears to be a lot of controversy about it.

        I know a few guys that would never recommend one.

          I can't comment on that particular engine, but I have bought my used (zero timed) 503 from Rotax Rick and it was a real pleasure doing business with him. Great guy with a reputation for standing by his work.

          Curious what the controversy is about.

            Rick is an awesome guy and will rebuild a warrantied engine for free. I had one rebuilt 4 times and never left the ground!! So I bought a brand new 582 to replace it.
            I am no longer using Ricks service.
            For those that are happy, I am happy for you, I've just seen too much to ever leave the ground in one again.
            2 cycles are known to be problematic, but I trust a factory built or a certified Rotax service center engine over a garage built engine any day.
            My life is worth the few extra bucks.
            Plus I could never understand how a one man shop with no resources could claim to make a better engine than the factory that spends millions on research and development.
