The CHCH earthquake damage is a big deal!

Took me a while to work out that you have to slide the arrows left and right to see the full pictures!

It'll be loud (all pusher wings are). The prop will slow it down on the slope.

For slope (and DS they claim) there is another plane at HK called the ridge ryder. I don't know what it's worth as I haven't seen it fly but here:

If you want a pusher, it probably could be adapted to it. It has a ballast system.
