My Rans S9 Chaos kit was delivered to me here in Thailand in March 2006. Completion to first flight was the 23rd December 2015, due to all the usual delays, work interference, etc. The engine is a Rotax 582, giving sporty performance on the little single seater. Cruise is about 75 mph with about 1000+ fpm regularly seen on the VSI. It hasn’t been upside down yet; but certainly it’s a fun airplane. Not one to finish one project before starting another, I got a Sonex OneX kit about three years ago and have about three months into that one now, so look out for that completion some time in the next decade.
