Before I list it in Trade-A-Plane I thought I'd see if anyone here might be 
interested in a lowly monoplane.

This plane is easy to fly, flies well, and much, much, much, much easier to 
land than a Pitts.
Crosswind landings are almost easier than no-wind condition landings.
The engine runs strong, low oil consumption(upright), two oil analysis 
showed normal conditions.  Last compression check was 76/80, 70/80, 70/80, 
72/80.
I would not recommend this plane for anyone 6 foot tall or over unless you 
have good knees.  It may not be the prettiest plane on the flight line (it 
has been banished from the community hangar at a contest this year), but it 
is capable of kiking butt and flying the advanced maneuvers(with practice of 
course).
