Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."

  1. The limiting factor seems to be their desire to stay within Sport Pilot restrictions (GTOW about 1325 lb) – a marketing consideration rather than a technical one. A slightly heavier model with a bigger engine – and increased payload – seems to be feasible, but would be less accessible because of the need for a full Private license as opposed to Sport Pilot rating.

    I wonder if they are considering the fuel as part of their payload or if they mean what it can carry after the tanks are topped up. Normally fuel is considered part of the payload.

    Perhaps they’ll start with a sport pilot version and then produce a more capable version for serious users.
