It is probably a good thing I do not have the time to build one, or the money to buy one already assembled. That looks like a hoot of a plane! And estimated 23 MPG at 55% cruise? That is crazy (in an awesome way)!
They are amazing aircraft!
In my 8, at my usual economy cruise (I run lean of peak), I do 172 kts (198mph) at 7.8 gph which is 25.5 mpg! If the weather is good, I can beat the airlines to any place west of the Mississippi. All without being strip searched. I can even do a few rolls on the way there.
