Great for you Elvis 70, I like the 407 cockpit due to a little more room and the speed. I like the L4 because is is just like putting on a glove when you operate it. The A-star has a good following but I don't have any time in one. Did fly the SA-315 Llama with 100' long line hauling explosives and Bambi buckets. Great sling load machine and good at altitude in the mountains. Never got used to the "backward" rotation of the rotor system and having to grease the machine every fuel stop.:huh Look forward to meeting you down the road. I will be the guy on the XR650L laying on my side in the dirt.
