Those are actually great flying planes, I've got a buddy that kit built one and it flies like a dream. They aern't as small as you think.....they are designed for 2 people side by side. It's very cool to see Sonex take on this kind of project. Well Done!!!!

Give it 10 years and they will probably be a standard option on all homebuilts. People once said that computers would be nothing more than fancy room sized calculators...
