Doug, it has a ZDZ 160 RV-J again. I'm kind of soft towards them. Still short of my altime desired ZDZ 180 RV-J.

-Snuts-
The 160's are wicked, run with or better than all in that category. Seems the 180 is an animal...so say the eastern reports..and a few on Crying Giants! And those Ultimates are great flyers!!

I'm not convince that the quad is really worth the $$$$ and weight it packs when there's lightweight and wickedly powerful and smooth twins now!!

However....decision will made tonight!

Between the 190 and the 180 my pick would be the 180 or even the new 210RV-J. It would be a monster with it.

Have to agree Doug. That young fellow in Camrose has been venting that for a month now....and yes I'd love to try the new 210RV-J...I bet it's a monster in it's own!! Guaranteed it'll be smooth as well.

Jack I would go 180 over the 210. I've seen the 210 run before reminds me of a tractor for some reason

So, I'm laying in bed this morning. It hits me I was offered the CARF Yak last spring that my first 160 came out of. The J.R. Scheme. I passed on it. I tried to tell Dan to buy a ZDZ 180 RV-J for the CARF Yak he had, but sold quickly.
That is one of my Grandsons holding onto it last spring.

The 210 RV-J Brad?...I have to be cautious with you guys because your flying style is completely different than mine.

WOW...those were beauties Dale....I think Dan was hugely confused last spring...he seems to have really settled into it now!

When can we expect you going to blue Dale?
