Ok James Hansen   I liked your tale of gyrating   please share it with ever=
ybody here.Many dreamers were intrigued about this craft,and many more than=
 we can count here ,are friends or kids of someone involved with Bensens.Th=
e right procedure is to tow it first ---then add the motor.Tricky little de=
vil ---for sure.---Wisdom ? from Hagar    ---You can teach yourself to fly =
one --that was testflown. You can not testfly and teach yourself to fly at =
the same time.(without undue risk)
Mine was powered by   .first a MUKKELOK 100 cubic inch 4 cyl two stroke   1=
05 HP. Then a  Arial 4 square motorcycle engine and now  1600 cc VW   ---ne=
xt a Rotax ---just you wait.Will feed a few tales here as we go-unless some=
one complains.One dreamer here turned drawing the wrong way ---he has the o=
nly Bensen with a Rotor turning ass backwards--that I know off.I think Mark=
 Shepherd is going to suggest selling it to someone in Aussiland.       And=
 I also lifted a car rear end off the ground with it ---A VW Van full of ca=
mping gear.        Hagar.

PS: use a front wheel drive for towing.
