What's the price tag on those Verner engines?

I know. If I have to ask I can't afford it.

They are published on our site. Whether it's affordable, I can't judge that, but it's not the cheapest $-per-HP for sure. But I dare say it's not a bad deal for what you get.

I went directly to the Verner Engines web site and did not see any prices. But I did finally see them on ScaleBirds.com. IIRC, they start at about \$7000 for the 3 cylinder? The LB/HP looks inviting, though.

Love that sound.

Always think about a hummelbird with one up front.

Mmmmmm

Yes, but maybe a bit more streamlined. More like crossing it with a Hawker Tomtit look cowl and the Fury.

isn't streamlined and radial engine an oxymoron?

Oxymoron,

A bit naturally.

I just like the idea of a speedy gleaming polished alloy airframe with a radial up front. I love the sound and look.

Also I think it is a better engine than a half VW. More expensive though.

Just like a nicely cowled radial looks sexy.

That hangar is unnaturally clean.... Take something greasy apart and leave it on one of those tables so the rest of us can feel better!
