Steve speaks the truth. Assuming that one can get uncertified motors into the US, the next challenge becomes insurance. Without the appropriate manufacturing, use, and transport certifications one cannot secure affordable insurance, and would need to have their own piece of property to fly from, and be willing to personally carry any risk associated with use.

Pitor seems to be the first Euro boutique manufacturer to have solved many of these issues. I commend him, and sincerely hope that he has the resources to begin marketing, shipping, and selling these new motors outside of Europe.
