New US Sky Arrow distributor

Talk about airplanes! At last count, there are 39 (and growing) FAA certificated S-LSA (special light sport aircraft). These are factory-built ready to fly airplanes. If you can't afford a factory-built LSA, consider buying an E-LSA kit (experimental LSA - up to 99% complete).

One other thing I consider a plus...

...rods instead of cables for both the ailerons and elevator.

Gives a very solid feel, and though cables work just fine - and cables are used for the rudder - rods just seem a more secure method to me.

I think it’s very clever the way they articulate movement of the sidestick to the appropriate control movements:

And don't forget in a tandem they puke on the back of your neck instead of in their own lap, as well. :lol:

Neat article on breaking a Plexiglas canopy: http://www.europa.com/~swayze/RV-7A/Cha ... eting.html

Thanks for the video. That was a good demonstration. If I recall correctly, Mythbusters used something like that with equally great success to break a car window under water and escape. Looks like a worthwhile addition, and probably safer to use than a handgun. :shock:
