Anyone else had the chance to see one in person?
There were three 130Xs at the Toledo show a few weeks ago. I didn't see them fly, but I did get a chance to hold them in my hot little hands and examine them up close and personal.
I was impressed with the amount of technology present in such a small aircraft! Other than the tail gears, it looked fairly robust. Due to it's small size, a shaft driven tail is probably more practical than a belt and the videos show the tail is definitely locked in though.
Of course the 130X is a high-performance aircraft designed for flying not crashing...
