I hear a lot of people who have flown both say the LE flys like a Piper Cub. The only other gripe I here is some of the 1/2VW's feel noes heavy. I'm making a slight change to the nose design of the Legal eagle. The nose will form a triangle from the pilot forward. Simpler, stronger and lighter than the squared nose and I don't think the engine cares if it is mounted to a square or a triangle. The big thing will be actually reworking the stock engine. Case cutdown, balance, blueprint run on test stand. I plan to fully break in the engine with it on the test stand. It will give me a chance to not only get real world thrust numbers but I'll know what service maint it will need to stay tip top. In the end I should have a Engine that is 30% lighter than the 1/2VW, comparable thrust, and 1/2 the cost.
