On the eve of four announcements

It is Sunday evening; my wife and I have comfortably settled into our rental home in Lakeland Florida. Sun N Fun starts in two days. Tomorrow, we’re sending out four news releases.

We’re exhausted. Our staff and us have been working nearly around the clock for the last couple of weeks, trying to get everything ready and buttoned up for the show.

Most of my time has been spent on the development of a suite of avionics — you’ll be able to read about them soon enough. I’ve already concluded that once you fly with our new air speed indicator, you’ll never use any other air speed indicator again. Ours is designed from the ground up for slow experimentals and ultralights. But it’s just one of ten or so new avionics we’re introducing, and it is by no means the coolest. Enough said on the avionics, or I’ll spill the beans prematurely.

I asked for feedback on the Trike several weeks ago. You responded; and we completely redesigned it. Take a look at the pictures which have been posted on flickr
and you’ll see that the Trike is now identical to our conventional taildragger model. And you can switch back and forth easily!

The Trike pictured is powered by a MZ202 engine with 45 horsepower. It uses carbon fiber wings, and tips the scales at about 250 pounds. Amazing.!

That’s all for now.

See you at Sun N Fun in two days!
