You are most welcome John! If I may be so bold as to chime in on the semi-novice applicability of this plane. I would say most definitely not! It is very small and can easily get too far away from a novice turbine pilot to be able to ascertain the flight perspective of the plane.

I know this sounds soapboxy but I mean it to be a helpfull suggestion. One of the most common novice mistakes is keeping the throttle at full power for too long after takeoff allowing the plane to get going too fast to be controlled properly. By the time the novice has it under speed control it is too far away to be seen, even if the novice had the mental alertness to turn! This sounds very critical to the uninitiated, but you turbine experienced guys out there will realize the potential folly inherent with a turbine in a plane smaller than an Ultra Sport .40! Remember this plane is BALLISTIC off the end of the runway on takeoff!

Let me assure you gentlemen that the BobEcat with an MW44 is REALLY FAST!!! Not only in true airspeed but also in the perceived airspeed that small size develops.

This is the forth small MW44 size jet that I have built. I used two 14ounce and an air trap on all of them. It depends on the airplane but you can expect a 6 to 9 minute flight time with this set up.
