I too have been in touch with Jim at Rotec. He provided me most of the same information that I’ve seen on the blog. We have the R3800, including the VDO instrument package and mount, in our preliminary budget. Sign us up for one R3800!!! I might suggest that if we go the bulk engine buy route that we put one of the teams in charge of the buy so Rotec isn’t dealing with several different schools. This might eliminate the chance of generating any confusion and improve cooperation.
We went to Fantasy of Flight last Friday and got some decent shots of the DVIII and Morane (we were like kids in a candy store!!!). We’ll post another blog later today with some pictures and info.
