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)

If you want to go up, pull back on the controls. If you want to go down, pull back farther.My SPOT page
