I flew the first 25 hours off with out the springs in the system. I wanted to feel what the roll forces were without the springs. The plane is quite a bit more stable then all the other RVs, with the exception of the RV10. I just installed the springs but have not yet flown the plane to see if there is a difference in feel.
