My opinion

It would be little but definitely cool addition in IF. I really like the cockpit as it’s very modern. All in all this plane looks good, I am sure it flies good and it would be quite fun :)

Tell me your opinion about this aircraft !

See you around !

This actually looks like a nice little GA aircraft! Nice and sleek, as well as a great cockpit as said! Development on this would be pretty cool, since the designing and programming is no more difficult than the XCub, and has both a steam and glass variant!
