I have used the 377 and two of the 447 Rotax engines in the many years of my time in the air and have never had an engine out ,I now fly with a New 447 and Fly with a friend that has the 582 on his T-Bird if I use 5 gallons of fuel He will use 71/2 gallons of fuel on the same trip and he is much slower than I am (draggy T-Bird) so fuel burn can be a problem if your expecting to make it to the next airport and can not carry enough fuel to do so.

I fly one of the Original firestars and its a fat one with the 447 electronic Ignition second engine the last one was a 447 with Points and it was just as good Plenty of power to spare I fly it on Wheels and skis and I think I will have plenty of power when I get my floats on also
(at) 5100 RPM its fuel burn is 2.5 to 2.8 GPH

at 5100 RPM my ground speed is around 65 MPH
Yes the one on barnstormers is the one, I am 185 lbs and 10 gallons of gas and me in it weighs in at 588 lbs if I remember correctly
I am selling it because I am working on getting A private license so I can be legal but I need a bigger plane so My wife can go and I have a son interested in learning how to fly also
if I had all kinds of money I wouldnt think of selling it I would just use it when I went flying alone
I have more in it then the asking price and I have done some major improvements to that little plane that you never see in another Kolb of the same caliber ,and shes a blast to fly I am just hoping what ever I get next will fly as good as it does
