    Loki M-1378 for L3 Cert Flight

    Any reasons why I shouldn't be looking at using a Loki M-1378 for my L3 cert flight? I understand it's a relatively new motor with a very high L/D ratio, so I'd enjoy hearing other's feedback on it. I like that's it's a relatively small impulse/high thrust design and also, after the L3 cert is...
