Good to know about the canopy cover. Don’t know if you viewed the photo, but that’s how I plan to cover my airplane if I ever get to own one. Pretty much every square inch is protected.

High altitudes-X/C (another engine vs. engine thread)

There are multitudes of threads regarding engine comparisons (160 vs. 180 vs. 200 horsepower, etc.). And having browsed through many of them, Iíve learned that while the bigger engines give you...

While itís anyoneís guess as to what theyíre actually working on, I would prefer something between the 150-200 hp range (like the majority of RVs). Not too small and wimpy as the 100 hp, but not...

Why is it that 14s that are already built cost over $200k? Thatís close to double what the average 7 is. Iíve even seen a kit thatís not quite yet completed that listed for $219k.

Vans has made no mention of it, but it presumably will be a 2-seater. Could be wrong, though.

Tandem or side-by-side seating?

Are you hoping the new RV-15 will have tandem seating, or would you prefer it had side-by-side seating?

…what about the 4 is cheaper as far as operation & maintenance is concerned? The 4 costs less and therefore, would (presumably) be cheaper to insure. But how would it be cheaper to fly and own? ...
