    These guys are doing some neat stuff. Saw their Merlin at Sun-N-Fun, it's a great looking design. They're also planning on trying Pete Plumbs Pegasus 0-100 in the Merlin. I hope it works out for them and Pete. I'm looking forwards to seeing what these guys do next.

    Nice little aircraft, would be great with the Pegasus or a 582. But the Pegasus would be the choice for me. Lovely single metal high wing. The stall seems a bit high for the performance envelope though. Or s the cruise kept low?

    He quotes $6950 for a complete Pegasus is that correct? If so and makes 60 HP then that is great for ready to rock

    And here I am all disappointed...I thought you meant someone was building an LSA version of the pre-WWII Aeromarine Klemm designs.

    I looked around their site. A few other things look interesting. Including an upcoming electric motor.

    You're just going to have to do it yourself Matt. A Klemm would make a neat alternative to the Pietenpol and be a great place to put one of those new little radials.

    Yup, a riff on the late Klemm L.25 variants set up with enough engine mount flexibility and tail volume for different engines and the builder's choice of open or closed cockpit and cowling would be great fun.

    A Spacewalker would need another 10 ft of wing to be like a Klemm.

    Here's one of the later L.25 models....

    Note the much-improved tail surfaces.

    I wonder if either of you could even define what "liberal" actually means? Politics aside....

    Here's a replica Klemm L.25D with a modern flat engine, very graceful and elegant in flight, IMHO.
