  For those of you that read the 202 article in Sport Aerobatics , I suggest 
you read the rebuttal article posted by Chris Meyer , as it brings to light 
many points that were very one sided in the magazine.I agree with Chris that 
the 202 is a fine a/c and has yet to see it's day.I have been involved with 
building a couple of 202's myself  , as well as maintaining a couple more for 
customers , and this is a great little airplane that keeps up with all of the 
6 cylinder monsters with just 200hp. Very few homebuilts can you find that 
can be assembled in kit form that are pre-preg carbon and engineered  to 
perform like it does without spending $300K . Dispite the downfalls of the 
factory , as more and more 202's show up at contests , this little airplane 
continues to impress everyone who watches it fly......Mike Mays
