Rotax has been stepping in engine development for the past five years and the latest is the 916 UL. In this in-depth video, KITPLANES editor Marc Cook talks to CubCrafters’ Brad Damm about why the company went with the 916. He explains the reasons behind adopting the four-cylinder turbo Rotax into the Carbon Cub airframe, talks about the ongoing development process and gives some insight into the next steps for the airplane, which will be offered as both a production-line LSA as well as an Experimental/Amateur-Built airplane.
