Hey Dave (Flyer5),

Time to add a couple $$$ to the cost of a LL heating appliance.

This could be your new commute to work.

Check out the super short quick take off............

I flew one about 10yrs ago when it was a fairly new concept. Lots of fun. But even back then it was almost 40k just for the engines.
There was no such thing as getting behind the power curve even with floats. :)

A lot slower but with only me I was off in less than 50'
This should have been the corporate plane. I should not have sold it. :(

Nah. That plane could handle more than I was comfortable throwing at it. I could land it on a postage stamp if needed. Flown cubs and champs there fun but I like the openness of the quicksilver. If you have never been in one you are mislead on the safety if properly maintained.

Oh yea the personal Jet would be nice.

That's a cool plane. I want one. Although I'll never be rich enough to ever afford one or a vacation to Disney.

I was just on the Air-Cam site and the kit is about $49k without the engines.
