The BD first flew in 2001 with a Hirth 2706 efi engine and the .020 wing skins. The wing had an undesirable stall and the Hirth a high frequency vibration that we could not fix. Re-skinned the wings with the BMT .032 skins and installed a RotaMax 65 HP 650 cc liquid cooled Wankel engine in it. The motor runs fine but a Wankel is very loud and has very high exhaust temp . The RotaMax is a single rotor with a torque band that comes on at low rpm. Installed 2 CDI"s and 2 spark coils with a coil splitter to a single plug for dual ignition. Last mod"s were glass panel and AOA. The original weight was 410 lb and is now 485.

About $2500 in spare parts, rotor, cdi"s, starter, alternator, seals,bearings, coils.
