Ramesh - congrats on your completion and first flight.

Darn - that Corvair engine sounds good. I am considering using a Corvair engine on my Cruzer. How do you like it? Did you go the WW route with engine parts or in a different direction? Also - any comments on how the aircraft responds during landing? Approach speeds? Did you have to carry power through the landing? - Thanks
