I want one, too!
I wonder if it would be allowed to start it on the glider field near my home town (my brother flies gliders there). They only have a winch designed for normal gliders, and no motor planes.
Wow - That looks like a Really practical glider! I’d love to catch some thermals in that baby.
I love the concept and ease of launch, but for the entry cost, I could own a nicely built RV6. I suppose that it’s like buying a Carbon Cub (please). At the end of the day, the return on your investment is justified by what you feel are intangibles.
I think it is mainly aimed at the european market. It is light enough so it fills a niche.
Flying a real aircraft is much more expensive here, and also there are lots of restrictions.
Getting and maintaining a license for everything more advanced than a glider in Germany is a nightmare for example. And extremely expensive.
That’s why people search for ways around those regulations.
Edit: oops. This topic was marked recent on my phone for some reason…
