No, not an SMA. He has a hybrid Continental, a mix of CD-230, CD-265, and experimental parts. Yes, it has obvious SMA genes (the worst kept secret in aviation), but nearly everything has been revised. The upcoming 265 makes another jump.
It's easy to be confused. The Continental TD-300-B (first generation CD-230) was pretty much an SMA-305. Not dead sure, but I don't think Conti ever sold any of them.
Watch for the May issue of Kitplanes.
