This is my rocket a Harmon II I finished in Nov 2012. I am very happy with the performance and enjoy every minute of stick time I can get. I would say the above statements are true. She is a great flying machine, easy to fly but unforgiving of laziness on landing and roll out in the conditions described above. Nothing to fear but something to be aware of.
I dont have any current pictures of the interior but it is all leather and the panel is an Advanced flight systems 5400 and 3500 with a garmin 430 driving it all. John designed a fantastic machine.

Ahhhh - - that is better, worth the wait -Thanks! Nice Plane!

Somebody with a really nice camera caught us landing at Copperstate last year and was nice enough to put it out on the web.

...Thanks Google!

Wow, another Rocket in Canada! You are hereby invited to the coast... Langley fly-in in June, or anytime you want.

Race yah.

p.s. This looks like a Harmon with an EVO wing, registered as an F1.

This is pure F1 EVO with a custom tip-over canopy (still have the slider canopy/parts and speed slope windshield in the shop). Reason is I bought the salvage from an F1 EVO that had an off-airport landing. It had this canopy on it. I was flying an RV-4 at the time and I love the unobstructed view and the easy access of the tip over. Plus using it saved me a bunch of time during the build.
