HKS 700E

Hello dear friends,
today I would like to introduce you one idea we had.
From my experience I know also pilots using motorgliders mostly for gliding. They use engine as "something heavy and noisy necessary for independent takeoff"
That pilots would like to have maximum glider ratio and they don´t need to have 100 hp for 10 m/s climb ratio or aerotow.
Then engine HKS 700E can be solution.
(more info about the engine is on web http://www.hks-power.co.jp/hks_aviation/)
Because HKS 700E engine weight is low, we could use also retractible gear and still stay in UL category.
Just an idea but.... what do you thing?
Best regards!
Martin
