Hello,

I saw the plane at Toledo this year and it looks nice. A little large for a 480 motor, but it would probably still fly fairly well on it. Is it a pattern plane? I do not think so. The tail moment is a little too short and the rudder does not extend below the elevator. I suspect that the plane would probably have a tendency to corkscrew while rolling if using any rudder. Is it a sport plane? Definitely, and it looks like a nice little one. With the bubble canopy and pilot in it it definitely looks like a vintage plane from the 70's.

Teo
