    Falconer V12 vs. Walter 601

    Which powerplant would you rather fly and own? Please address reliability, maintenance, fuel economy, and anything else pertinent. Thank you....

    Walther 601 hands down. It's a turbine and therefore much more reliable. Now if it was against a rolls Royce Merlin V12 we would have a much tougher decision because of the cool factor along with the song that a Merlin makes is true music.

    I think the Walter has a better track record for reliability just because of the number in service. How many Falconer V12's are flying and how much time in service has the fleet accumulated?
