Personally, I wouldn't want to hang one on an RV-12 if I were building. By the time you're finished I'm not sure how much money you'll actually save, but I'm pretty sure you'll significantly extend the build time -- and it will (if history is any indication) be difficult to sell when you need to sell it. It certainly would be "experimental", though.

That said, I do like what I have seen of the Aeromomentum engines and PSRU. I talked to the guy for a while at Airventure in '17. I have another project under way that I may hang one on, if I live long enough to actually get to the point of needing an engine.

A very valid point. You will save $15k on the build. But if you take a $20k or $25k hit at resale time, what have you really saved?

You could invest that $15K for 5-10 years and have $25K? It worked for me.
