You are welcome. You would be looking around $161,000 USD (estimate).""The base kit model is $84,995.00 less engine, propeller and avionics. The pricing will vary depending on what options you add. ""
Thanks - How much roughly ( ballpark ) if go with the standard kit, ie you add the engine and prop and rotors and basic avionics and basic paint scheme - thanks
I can't answer for SportCopter but I will give an opinion. They won't accommodate a direct drive prop, (require a re-drive), they won't make 230hp (80-115 turbo charged standard), they are very expensive for the HP that they do make, they won't accommodate a constant speed prop, they don't have a 2000hr TBO and virtually all the Euro machines that use them are under powered.Does SportCopter have an aversion to the 912/914?
Yes, I believe they are all under powered, just my opinion of coarse. My RAF has the fuel injected 130hp sub and I wish I had the larger 2.5L 165 hp eng. On a hot day you can get into trouble fast with out the extra power. None of the Rotax engines create enough extra power for the application they are generally being used for, IMHO, and certainly are not worth the money they command for the hp they make.".....and virtually all the Euro machines that use them are under powered"
Are you sure.
Bear in mind these underpowered engines are fitted to
over 1100 MT-03/MTOsport
over 350 Calidus
over 145 Cavaons
over 850 Magni gyro ( M14,M16,M22,M24 )
over 200 Xenons/Zen1/Tercel
over 30 Arrowcopters
over 50 Trixy
How can this be.
Surely you are not comparing your CC to a rotorcraft. Apples and bananas. So your point is.....?My 180 HP 889 lb. Carbon Cub has never lacked for power. Don't want or need more. I'm a happy camper!
