Default Rotary for homebuilt aircraft-how choose?

I'm thinking about something like a 13B -RSW for a canard airplane.

Requirements are longevity, power, quietness.

I am of the current opinion that a rotary would be ideal for an aircraft as it runs a long time at high power setting and does not change speed frequently like a car. Is this good assumption?

I am open to suggestions. Since I am visiting in ST Pete 'till the end of Jan, is there anyone I could visit near here to see equipment and discuss possibilities?
For me seeing equipment is better than just talking.

Thanks. George Weller

Hello,
you may have seen my thread on a very similar topic. I agree with what you say, and i am also working on building an aircraft, but mine will be a little bit more complicated. I am working on building a 5 place twin (similar to the Diamond DA-42). message me and we can discuss this...

I'm still getting info. The problem I seem to have seen is the sealing in the combustion chambers, top and sides and their longevity. What points have you seen?
I bought an Aerocanard project that I/we are slowly working on here in Stanstead, QC, Canada.
