Nope, we sold ours almost right after we got it flying. It performed reasonably well on wheels, but we wanted to put it on floats, and it was pathetic on floats. Really bad. Very slow flying on floats, down to about 70 to 75 mph while on floats.

So we sold it to a guy in New Brunswick who is flying it on wheels.Ours had the Subaru engine when we bought it, but after some research on that variation of Subaru, we swapped it out for a Lycoming.
