That looks like a very interesting project!
Definitely went with function over form.... that Adept looks like its going to be working hard.. :?
Its the 320hp Adept which is apparently enhanced in terms of performance by the custom MT propeller.
Wits University computations suggest that the combination is going to do the job well, but the proof will be in the pudding when it flies.

Interesting C210 - didn’t realise they had braced wings - the cantilever must have been a later addition?
. Looks like a straight back too?

Pretty bird.

I guess that depends on the definition of function.
I like planes one can actually see out of...
