That was full flap no power stall, without looking at the test flight sheets I would guess that with similar power settings and full flaps it would stall at 28. We've also experimented with landings. Without slats we have done approaches at 50mph with and without flaps both landings are similar, power idle, hold 50 to flair, hold it off till it won't fly. There isn't any trouble holding the nose up and we don't have to add any power at flare. That being said we have vg's on the elevator and our elevator/horizontal are wider than stock 701..... We copied the 750 dimensions. We have no issues with lack of elevator authority all the way to landing, like others have reported. The second 701 were building has the long wing and stock horizontal with a beanie mod, this way we can evaluate the the aircraft and determin the mods that work best. The third 701 will have long wing with slats. A side by side by side compairson can be made. No. 2 is waiting on avionics I expect it to fly this spring.

Thanks for the offer.
The kit is 95% complete, in fact it is even painted. There is nothing FWF. No engine etc. Besides the FWF it still needs a panel and the upholstery wheel pants and fairings, a few things like that.
I don't have many pictures as it is all separated in my shop at home.
I think $21k is a fair price.
If you are still interested let me know.
