Member Frank Davis built this beautiful Xenos and reports
I only have about 13 hours on and am still fighting new engine high temps (Jab 3300). It gets off the ground smartly and I am usually at 500' agl by the end of our 7,000' runway which is at 4,700' MSL. As you can see from the pictures I am flying it with the short acro wingtips. With the longer utility/soaring tips it doesn't fit in a 40' hangar. I'll install them later in the test period.
