  1. Hi Marshall! If the limited payload suits your mission, you can't go wrong with a well maintained Sport Cruiser and the best way to verify the one you choose is right here in the knowledge shared by the folks on this forum. My previous 50+ flying years were limited to Lycoming and Continental engines so the high revving Rotax with a gearbox was a leap of faith. I needn't have worried. The Rotax is safer and stronger than any other. It is also simple and forgiving to fly behind. Your 456 would be an "in the ballpark" trade for a high-time legacy Sport Cruiser if you could find an int
  2. Thanks for sharing another great tip, Shawn!
  3. Shawn, A lot of the "smooth" part came from you. Chris and I appreciate all your good advice.

Maybe that attitude was why the Piper relationship was so short. Thanks again, Chris & Gary
  4. Update! N520PS has a new nickname. "ELSA". The process was relatively painless. We've received immense help from this forum. You have all made our entry into the LSA world much easier. Thank you! We've also met some competent friendly people in the form of LSRM and DAR here in Florida. Now on to the mods to our "new" E-LSA cruiser. Chris & Gary

  7. We purchased our white & red 2010 PiperSport in Titusville recently with a little over 400 hours on the clock. After the mandatory 5 hours insurance check out it was repositioned to Craig Exec in Jax. The plane appeared cosmetically perfect and well maintained except for trailing edge flap damage from stray feet. This is our first foray into light sport. Our previous flying experience was with Aztec, Comanche B, Pitts S2B, Great Lakes and the usual 182's and Pipers. One point I noticed during check out was that the PiperSport taxis just like our S2B only without the S turns. Kind of like h
