Rotax 914 + Q2

Recommended Posts

Would weight an balance allow for an engine like the rotax 914 UL in a Q2(00)? i'm really starting to like these planes and was thinking a single place Q2 and more fuel. hopefully rotax will be around for a while, add a constant speed prop and i think i would have one heck of a fun plane.

thanks for any replies

I always say that there's nothing wrong with replying to a post from the distant past, so here we go.

I think the Rotax 912 and 914 engines would work well in a Q2 airframe. I was considering converting my Tri-Q200 project to a Rotax, but these engines are not cheap. 

Since 2008 Rotax has established itself in the LSA market, and I noticed that most of the CS prop manufacturers favor Rotax at the 100 HP range over direct-drive Continental or Lycoming engines.
