    Personally I would go the route of big fat tires with low PSI.
    Might not be the idea that you're looking for here, but if you take it far enough you could (impractically) operate off a tilled field.
     
    P.S.  I'm jealous of your private Airfield!

    Vance ya did good on that $550 mount!
    Heres CPS at $995 and it looks like just for the frame and no hardware.
    Oh and for sure if you can build it yourself then that's pretty much always the way to go.  For me I'd weigh how long (reaaally long) it takes me against just going out and doing my day job and paying someone who is better at it

    Willam is extremely reasonable.   He said it will be right about $1000, which is about what you would pay for a 912 mount for kitfox.
    He is also planning to offer headers, oil tank, coolant tank, and throttle reverser for the Avid.
    Next he hopes to make up KF fwf parts.

    Thanks Jim
    Are the Heavy Hauler and Magnum just MK4 variants, sharing the same engine mount?

    For my information, does the MK4 share a mount with any other models?

    So you edit out the camera and stick, OK. 
    But how in the world does it give a 15 ft "off the wingtip" view??   
    How can it see the around the tip of the wingtip?
    Dang!

    Yamaha Engine Mounts and FWF components for Avid!
    FYI:
    Over in the Yamaha Aircraft Conversions Facebook group we have William Langford who is making  an Avid Mk 4 engine mount jig for the Apex engine.  He is also planning to offer headers, oil tank, coolant tank, and throttle reverser for the Avid which would take about 75% of the work out of a conversion.
    The RX-1 also fits in the mount but it has a prop location that is about 2.5" lower than the apex.
    The mount weighs 7.28 lbs.

    Yep the 300 HP testbed is great to do some overload testing!  I really like the idea of that.  Assuming it does well there it would give some real comfort zone for running in that 180-220 HP range.
    And for reference, the 300 is on OEM bore (998cc) and the stock crank as well.  The OEM crank is even used in the 600 HP Apex drag racing sleds.

    ^^  Hope you are right!  What you say makes sense.
    But I wouldn't entirely blame EP for seeking a premium for the big power they are offering in the EPeX.  220 - 300HP at a smidge less than 200 lbs total installed weight is pretty unheard of and probably worth a few bucks to the kind of people who really want that much power.
    In terms of $/HP I think they would have grounds to look for a bigger margin.
