Default Any Infor About This?

I was cruising through RV10 stuff and stumbled upon this youtube video. It's got a -10 with turbo, air conditioning, and ifr...but what grabbed my attention was the side stick controller (like the Cirrus) installed. Shows up about 2:10 and again at 2:40 in the video.

The engineer in me would say..."don't mess with the control linkages" since the linkage system in the Cirrus is way more complex than the Van's. And yet...

Text with the video is Portuguese; I'm barely conversant in English.

Here is their site:

I really like the paint job they do around the windows...

And this is how they lay out the side-stick, and the arm rest needed to make a side-stick work:



Looks like they build the door latch handle into the arm rest.
