Default Interesting

Wow that is pretty exciting. If it's a new model they are really good at keeping a secret - much better than the gov't.

At least it has an engine and at least it is fueled by Avgas.

Good find!

Default -6 builders beware!

I think Van's exceeded critical mass on product support sometime ago because of so many models. They can't seem to even spell -4. One more on the line means another one has to fall off!

Sorry, I didn't get much sleep last night.

I found more registration info on the aircraft. It's registered as a 2 seater.

It has a Mode S Code, so I would assume they have a Skyview system in it...

Now, can I make a automated camera system that starts snapping pics whenever it sees that code and stick it at the end of UAO?

I heard it's a electric powered high winged bushplane/glider. useful load 1000#, cruise at 170kts and stalls at 35. prepunched and build time is 120hrs if you count beer breaks.
