Flight Controls - Pressure, comfort, effectiveness,                


Light pressures, very comfortable, and effective.
Propulsion Package - Reliability, noise, vibration,                


Rotax reliability, belt drive system and inverted engine mount are the drawbacks.
Performance - Compared to other craft with same weight, power and style of control systems.                


Take off distances, and climb rate is not as good as other craft, probably due to the beefy construction, but once up and flying it is better than most.
Overall Rating                


New ownership, low number of planes built, inverted engine installation and belt drive system are the only reasons for the lower overall rating.
