I've been coordinating with Barry from the Airplane Factory in Torrance to schedule a demo flight.
After months of research, I'm super excited to visit and get to see the plane in person.
While we were there, I was able to see a Quick Build kit in it's raw form from the factory. I was surprised by how much of a complete kit it already is! The fuselage and wings are basically put together for you. I was seriously tempted to jump in and start making airplane noises... ;-) Luckily, I had the real deal right next to it - N135WT.
Barry and I had a quick flight just off the coast and I the handling characteristics were great. We saw 1,200+ fpm on climb out. Once over the water, Barry handed the controls over to me and I felt like I was in a fighter plane, it was really responsive! Cruise speeds were as advertised, even at lower elevations I was seeing 135 kts indicated and true airspeeds of 145+ kts.
I took a few pictures and videos and stitched them together to remember. It certainly was an epic flight!
