XIO-360 180hp.. currently a FP Sensenich, but I'm looking at either a Catto 3 blade FP, or waiting until I'm home from next deployment and going big $$ for a Hartzel composite C/S prop.. but that's $14,000 including spinner..

Congratulations,

It was actually built in 2007 if I remember correctly, by Luis Luciani.. Believe it or not, it was ground looped and damaged a bit after only about 110 hours when Luis took off with a leaking right main tire. It went flat in flight and he was unable to control it once he landed. It went off the runway into a shallow ditch.

It was rebuilt with a new engine, and later purchased by Tom Moore, who is the current owner until I get home from the sand.

It's sitting up at Santa Paula airport right now, but I should have it before the new year. I have a hangar lined up at Ramona airport just northeast of San Diego for it.
