Thanks Bob for your input. I find the center stick forces to be quite sensitive. I'm used to flying Cherokees.

I test flew a CH601XL-B with dual sticks for a builder...and absolutely hated it! Heavy control forces required, caution not to de-nut yourself getting into the cockpit, and it introduces the potential for stick elevator travel to be limited by a seat cushion out of place or large a persons belly. Throttle was centre panel mounted. Don't add complexity and cost to your project.
