    Hello all. I'm Keith from Central CA. Years ago I wanted to build a Harmon Rocket (RV-4 based) using a SB Chevy engine. When it was apparent that was a goal too far, I chose a DR107 One Design. I got to about 80-90% airframe completion, but had to stop due to kids in college etc. Now they're done and out, so I'm revisiting the build. A Lyc. is still too expensive, so I'm looking at a Renesis conversion since the power and weight should be workable in the DR107. I'm a bit concerned that there are far fewer sources for redrives and ECUs than there were, and many of the familiar names are retired or out of business, so here I am to try to refresh my understanding of the current state of rotary installations and available hardware. Another challenge is, I want to keep the +/- 10g and inverted capability of the airframe. Not asking much....

    Core engine is reasonable price. Should be able to get help with using it with minimal cost if you are handy.
