    Jabiru 100 hp; Rotax 100 hp.

    The prop should be chosen carefully. The design point for STOL is takeoff, so when you order the prop specify your takeoff speed and RPM. A lot of homebuilders have a collection of props because they don't get it right the first time. Check with a tech counselor at the local EAA chapter.
