    I'm curious to see how long their dev cycle is. Looks like all renders and engineering data so far. Looks cool,s especially for a "beefed up LSA" sort of design. Designed in anticipation of the weight/performance rules changing I presume?

    It looks like they used a safety factor of 1.5 on the aircraft. Isn't a safety factor of 2 more of the standard with composites?

    Pretty slick looking. Has anyone seen this in person, is it all "artist's conception" or is there an actual airplane in existence?
