Friends don't let friends fly behind two stroke engines.
....only take 20 minutes
speaking of 2 strokes, its 300 on the 582
I've flown/owned a few two stoke powered planes. 2-strokes are reliable ... right up till they quit!
Certainly can get more than 200 or 300 hours between overhauls. Gotta let these motors slowly warm up amongst other best practices.
Absolutely! I've heard that you need 200ºF CHT before take-off but a wise Rotax rebuilder taught me that the engine needs to be run about 10 minutes or so to make sure it is "heat soaked" before full power application.
Is this like Jeopardy?

Alex - "The answer is.... 200 hours between overhauls...
Contestant - "Alex, what is - what do you get if you run LOP?"
Alex - "Ohhhh no. Sorry. The correct answer is low wings rule and buy a Bo."
Contestant - "Wait, how are you still the host?"
