    No, no, no. They're not designed to run flat out for long periods. Rotax for example only recommend maximum power for a couple of minutes, i.e. for take off.

    You want an engine that you don't need to run flat out so you keep it reliable. Eg, if you want 80hp, get a 100hp engine and run it at no more than 80% throttle. Cruising speed should be half throttle or less.

    I weighed the Honda V4 VFR 750cc engines that my friend was trying to sell to me. They weighed in a 170 lbs. each dry. Just a little bit over the 80 lb. limit for my Canair 300. I had a line on a Polaris 440cc snowmobile engine for $200 but by the time that I got there, it was sold.
