Alternative Engine..

This sure looks impressive; especially the times and costs. http://www.rotaryaviation.com/rvotter.html

Those of us who fly behind Lyc engines are used to seeing bigger $$ on every aspect of those engines. Having had three in-flight engine failures, I am always looking.. looking.. looking.

You know, Tex, not having to convert the up/down motion into circular must do something worthwhile and contribute to efficiency, right?
I did remember something called a NSU and I also remember the rotary piston jobbies were very thirsty. Everything looks like a trade-off of one kind or another.
