Wide main gear and a large rudder make ground handling exceptional. The ailerons have a 2.7 to 1 differential throw ( the one going up travels 2.7 times further than the one going down), this virtually eliminates adverse yaw, making the plane easy to keep coordinated in flight. Control surfaces are large, giving good control response clear down thru stall, the controls feel light and positive throughout the flight envelope. The plane doesn't have any bad habits and stubbornly resists a stall. In fact you have to force it to stall, then the nose drops and the plane recovers by it's self! It's a very pleasant and forgiving plane to fly.
This plane is powered with a Continental o200
With a 912 Rotax or an O200 Contenental the sport II needs only 300 ft of hard surface runway to get airborne, and will climb out at 800 ft per min.(at gross weight!) Landing roll is under 400 ft,
It can be ordered as a Tri gear or tail dragger and there are 2 engine options currently available.
