Building a Vario Benzin Trainer for our company to do some aerial photography. We are going to use the Zenoah 23CC gas engine with fixed gimbal - carrying a simple SLR camera.
I have a chart that I need to fill in and it asks me to project useful life of the engine and time for replacement.
This is part of a budget we must create for the next 48 months. If we are going to use this 10 hours per week can you give me an idea of what number I should fill in?
I do not want to put down 100 hrs if it is 500? We will probably budget for a new engine - but I don't know when to put it in the chart.
I am afraid to look stupid - thank you for your help
