What is the new retail price of a 914 in England? Below link is a list of Rotax aircraft engine pricing in the USA:How many SCII gyros do you think they will sell?
Will it stem the imports into the USA - you've bought over 60 Autogyro/Magni in the past few years.
Magni and Autogyro plus others too are selling in Europe, the USA, South Africa, Australia and around the world -do you think the SCII will sell around the world clocking up large numbers of sales?
Is the SCII the key model for the future of Sportcopter or do the new models that SC have hinted at hold the key for future sales.
At the moment the imports are taking the market.
A 914 is $31,679 USD
Both ECI and Superior have a good reputation of producing excellent new experimental PMA engines. Not sure which engine supplier SportCopter is using(or others).
A IO 360/390 Experimental is about the same price and puts out around double the HP. A 914 weighs around 165 pounds , a Lycoming IO360 is in the 275 to 295 pound range. If cost are the same , adding 100 pounds of engine weight to gain nearly 100 HP will be quite a increase of power to weight ratio.
