    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.
