Mine works great, but I have found that you get less “noise” if you use an external battery (GoPro batteries don’t last long) as opposed to ship power which tends to add a humming noise as referenced...

Weight is going up
HP is going up
Sport Pilots are not going to be carrying more than one passenger
In-flight adjustable props/CS props are likely

Sorry, but yes it was an April Fools Joke. But I would not be surprised if Rotax built a higher HP engine in the near future.

It is a bit of a tough one though, I am about to begin a Bearhawk build...

1700’ so plenty long especially with the 6% uphill grade, but folks are talking about a 175 knot plane, that would be pretty dicey when you think a big ratio is 4-1 cruise to stall. Not many planes...

I voted side by side on the advice of my wife… who refuses to sit in a back seat.

Tandem is fine for the pilot, but do you want to sit in the back?

You expand business by reaching to new customers, so reaching beyond the typical RV crowd would be expanding the business I should think. Some of the RV crowd will buy into the 15 though for sure. ...

600’ runways are all but unusable to all but the slowest flying cubs. Unlike you I live in the mountain west, so DA and dirts strips are more or less an everyday occurrence. Using good...

I am sure you are infinitely more knowledgeable about this than I, but I think a high wing benefits less from ground effect which plays a part in landing speeds.

You say “low 50’s” while I said...

If you are cruising at 175mph, what do you expect landing speeds to be? It would be a pretty big envelope to land below 50mph with a cruise (as in NOT top speed) at 175.

Personally I just don’t...

The screen shot from the Bearhawk website shows 150 TAS in cruise at 62% power for the 260hp

135-140 TAS for the 180hp
