Damage history:

Ground looped/gear folded years ago by a previous owner. P-Ponk for main gear installed afterwards. I tested the P-Ponk and it worked....



Located: Moraine Airpark, i73, hangar 89

I love this plane. Takes less than 700 ft to make a full stop landing and then take off again. I can be on final in full stall and have total control surface authority.  The slow speed, about 48 mph and 700 ft decent rate almost makes a crash landing a non event. Panel is steam gage heaven and I wouldn't have it any other way. Sure, glass is nice but it doesn't help the airframe handle better. If I have to make a forced landing, I want to be going as slow as possible when I contact Mother Earth. Glass doesn't help me do that...
