Summary:

Awesome, fast aerobatic plane. Takes off in a short distance, but takes a big landing area to bring her in. The suggested control throws are very gentle for this plane, I found increasing the throws helps with landing. It does tip stall at a high speed, which makes it a plane for intermediate to advanced pilots. The 75ax by OS was plenty to fly the snot out this plane. At wide open throttle paired with the Pitts muffler you can feel the vibrations on low passes in your feet. It's a crowd pleaser when the smoke valve was flipped, and a rock solid performer.
