Intresting. This would have been the choice of mine if not going the turbine route. I might still try this in the future.

It will be faster once you fly it never seen a shelf or bench at impressive speeds.

dont know if this has been discussed before ? anyway, why dont they sell the Swist in europe? It would be such advantage to all people living within EU to avoid that taxes that comes along from USA or Russia...

germany would be the best country to ship from I think to all europe..

Anybody that has ever cut up one of there favorite planes that was flying just fine will understand this..." I DO NOT CARE WHO YOU ARE,THIS BITES CUTTING UP A NICE BIRD" After doing a CG test,and motor placement,i soon realized i needed to go in and cut some more....which ended up being a good thing,this cut came out ALOT nicer (not easy with the Kevlar inlay,and now have less sanding) and the plane looks more proportioned when together....OK,back to work for me.

Doug,
That looks the real deal!

Sure you're not entering the Daytona Beach Speedcup tomorrow?!

Good luck.
Peter
