Yeah, he’s got quite abit more (going by what he says) power than the usual engine installed in these planes. The Rotax for this plane I believe puts out 80-90 hp? Whereas the EFI Yamaha with turbo will put out 160-180 hp. Plus he’s right at 100 lbs less in weight, engine wise. He could do stuff to get it more “hot” he said, but wants a do all, user friendly, fuel efficient plane, but still have plenty of power. Will be an interesting build for sure!

Sweet deal, oshkosh is huge. They have a fly-in in east tx as well, not near as big as oshkosh but a pretty cool looking venue. (I've not been). Reklaw I believe it's called.

Who knows, he may plan on the Reklaw gathering as well. Like I said, he’s shootin for next spring to keep everything paid in full, but wouldn’t surprise me if he hit all the shows he could. If for no other reason, than just an excuse to fly the new toy! He lives in the panhandle, in Vega, so finding a flat spot he can take off and land won’t be too hard! But he’s also in with some buddies at the local municipal airport and they all went in on a hangar. Good Huntin, and God Bless, Rusty

I remember going to Oshkosh by gosh a few times as a kid. My grandpa and I would fly his Cessna up there. He would do all the cooking for everyone. It was a big deal. If you get a chance....go!
