What's the latest on that 4 seater twin that a proof of concept model was built and flown?

Would make a lot of sense for a twin Jabiru engined aircraft for training / pleasure flying....

You're right it would make a lot of sense. Our quarter scale model flies really well. It also spins particularly well. Luckily it also stops spinning promptly with the correct inputs! Scale factor may be an issue here or perhaps it is just the aerofoil we chose for the model. Assuming we can tame that aspect (which I am sure we can) we will pursue that project at some point. In the interim the Whisper X is on the cards. Lycoming 160Hp 2 place side by side with much the same dimensions as an RV7 but built using the Whisper methods and most of our hardware, parts etc as well as a very similiar cockpit.
