In my search for a hopefully affordable, good performing, backcountry performer, this plane has caught my eye. Anyone have one, have experience in one, know somebody with one? Are they pretty tough/durable? Seem to be fairly light, some around 1100 lbs. I have seen them powered with cont O-320's,Lyc. and Cont O-360's and 220 Franklins. Some without flaps, but 'with flaps has to be better. Some wood spars, some alum???? Speeds seem to be in the 115-120 mph. range. I wouls hope for very good slow flight characteristics. Carry a pretty good load. Experimental. Take out the backseat and have enough room for camping gear.
Know of anyone wanting to sell one?? (I would prefer this info PM'd)
