Writer Harley Carnes wrote a superb article in his Experimental column
in the "Atlantic Flyer". He met with the designer/builder and test flew
the aircraft going through the advanced envelope. It is capable of
flying unlimited with no problems I understand. The article was several
months ago but I believe you could obtain a copy by Emailing the
publisher. You may wish to contact the author Harley Carnes personally.
His address should be archived in the IAC mail list or be found  at  the
chapter 52 homepage.
I got a chance to see the aircraft At Oshkosh. It was an impressive
machine and the designer a pleasure to talk to.
