Its all a balancing act like anything else.Cost-benefit ratio has to be a big consideration in a project like this.Id probably tend to lean towards the more cost friendly approach to prove the concept.Theres always time to get the maximun efficiency later.Although 2-stroke power has gained alot of reliabilty in the last 20 years the angry monsters do like to quit from time to time for various reasons.One motor in a twin wouldnt be as bad as a complete deadstick.Thats just one of the things you keep handy in your thought process flying an Ultralight.Unless your flying low over a congested area its likely you can fairly easily find a safe place to land with an engine failure.At least now that cell phones are so common its not as important to land by a road or house so you can call a buddy to bring the trailer to get it home.
