"This is my second plane after a 25 year hiatus. Mostly all sailplanes prior.
"Saito .91 is more than ample power. Flaps are a hoot! Take off run with half flaps is ten feet or less - and that is in pretty thick grass.
"The kit was wonderful, although this plane takes a little building. I just finished one of Bruce's Ventures and it was every bit as nice - just many fewer pieces.
"My re-entry plane was an LT 40. The FK requires just a bit more attention in the air but it is actually rolls much better than the LT 40. I think with the flaps and a little headwind it could be landed at nearly zero groundspeed.
I might have to build another one of these just for grins.
