No spin experienced. Can be made to drop a wing deliberately with misuse of aileron or rudder.
Load carried only experience 2 pob. Full fuel and 20 Kg behind the seat speed 85 kts@ 5000 rpm, very slight reduction of control responsiveness.
Glide 70 knots fairly shallow not explored. Landing characteristics.. should not be taken over the fence over 60 kts, will float if too fast and bounce if dumped.
Ground handling quite easy and safe. Aircraft fitted with two independent hand levers on stick and they have proved to be quite convenient to operate cable brakes.
It has been a joy to fly, but I am getting too old, and a bit too unwell.
