Re: RE: STATUS OF DISCOVERY AVIATION

Rotax not best,gearbox inspection or tear down if you use avgas.The 915 will give 135 continuous horsepower which will add significant power but i will stick to my 240B

They have quote me $2500 for the repair.The quote is via my lame.I hope he is not milking me.The issue is I bought the aircraft with the prop having a ding on the leading edge metal part.I am doing the annual and it has been sent to Southern Propellers.
