    Beautiful little plane. What are the real operating costs/hour and how do you calculate them? I know that these can run on extreme low fuel, lower then cars/mile.

    My highest was also 16000ft, in a ASW16b glider (not motorized). My highest in a motorglider was 14000 ft in a Ximango. I really like the look of the Sinus, taildragger. Thanks for sharing. I am enjoying your videos. I decided I want a Sinus. I think I am going to get one. Greetings from Australia.

    Can't believe how fast this plane gets off the ground. It just hops up within seconds. What's the stall speed and takeoff speed of these? Amazing little plane Darryl. I really like these aircraft. Would be awesome if they made one of these with amphibious capabilities.
    Also, congrats on the baby!

    Any particular changes for the engine, is it fuel injected?

    why is there a True airspeed Vne? the only Vne speeds I have heard of are Indicated airspeeds, not True.

    It's probably still a bit cold out for this, but when the weather warms up a bit, can you show your pre-flight and run-up procedures?

    How tall are you? You don't have much headroom in that machine.

    You weren't joking when you said the turbo Rotax was overkill for this airframe. Looks like it got up to FL160 fairly quick! It didn't seem like you were up that long but what was your true airspeed at FL160? Is 147kts true the VNE?

  20. Mark McGuigan September 23, 2017 at 4:53 pm

    Congratulations on your new born and your 16,000. What was your fuel burn like?

    Have you the 80ps or the 100ps Virus?

    That was your best video to date in my opinion. Thank you!
    Congrats on becoming a father and thank you for putting on the plane data on the screen.
    Great job!
