I think it's probably more than half the draw. It cracks me up when people don't bat an eye at a single pilot in a two place, but look down their nose when they see a single pilot in a four place. Not sure what you mean about aerobatic capability. The Musketeer had a four place aerobat, probably some others. In an EAB, as long as it can take the projected loads, who says you can't do aerobatics?I think half the draw of four-seaters is not just size for bigger folks, but also the ability to load up and go places. Take the dog(s), take suitcases, etc.
There's a part of me that kinda wants access to a four-seater but I think the only use I'd have for it would be dropping our son off with his grandparents on the way out for a trip with the wife, or giving rides to him and his friends at the same time. To me, that's not worth the extra expense and loss of aerobatic capability.
