From what I got from the guys at UL the project is being built at the Just factory and was delayed for some reason but is now back on track. I was at the factory over the summer and saw the progress at that time but havent heard anything since. Troy seemed to think it was gonna hang off the prop on TO but be much heavier than most would like. UL website says its a 242lb engine and thats quite hefty vs the Rotax but then again it is 180 HP. Thats all I know but Im eager to hear about this as well! Maybe someone from the factory will chime in...

Ul just posted aid on the FB page of it. They say it's extended two feet?

I sure would have liked a stretched fuselage when I started my kit...

If just enough is really good, then too much ought to be perfect.

Next will be the XXL version, stretched ANOTHER 2 feet for an IO-540.
