That is an interesting looking airplane. Has anyone here flown one?

It doesn't look like the wing has much/any forward sweep, yet a lot of heavy stuff (pilot, engine, nose gear, etc) looks to be forward of mid-wing. I'm sure the CG is fine, but it would be interesting to see the W&B spreadsheet.

ETA: Wikipedia says these planes do have fwd sweep. That solves that puzzle.

Interesting motor glider, bit draggy with tricycle gear (better if a taildragger), and broad three blade prop?
Should be running a two blade 'toothpick' prop.
Little wary of the 'cosmetic' crack in the leading edge 🤔
