Many of you whom visited this site before noticed an engine section dealing with the installation of a rotary engine
in the aircraft. After much thought I decided to go a different route. This was not due to deciding against the
rotary, but in deciding in favor of a horsepower weight combination closer to what Rutan intended. The rotary was going
to come in at about the same weight and horsepower as a lycoming 360. I think the rotary is a great way to go if that
is your target horsepower. However, I chose to stick with a 290 or 320 lycoming like the majority of Longs out there.
Call me a traditionalist if you will.
