Hey Andre, sorry for the slow reply.

Thanks for the comment about the plane. Kodak the husky belongs to a mate of mine but the dog and plane looked made for each other so I took a photo.

I operate from a reasonably short strip on the side of a hill with a descent slope - the aircraft is absolutely perfect for that and I really enjoy flying her. I'm located on the coast in central New South Wales (just North of Sydney) and most of my flying is low along the coastline -mostly 'Tiger Country' inland [cliffs and forests] but literally hundreds of miles of long sandy beaches in the event that I have a problem - the bush wheels are a little bit of insurance in that event. Running a 912S and get about 70knots at 5'000RPM. No need for a mach meter but it would be hard to watch the wales and dolphins at 500 knots :)

Woooohie..... that's a beautiful plane....and what to say about that dog.....just great.

Are you satisfied with the STOL performance...and what speed do you get with those big tires??

Enjoy and fly safe.
