    Let’s face it- the current RV series will already go anywhere that the target market of this rv-15 is likely to want to take an airplane; I think all this discussion about flaps, gear, slats, etc etc...

    I’m not sure that’s simple spring gear- what are the weird fairings where the legs go into the fuselage? Covering some sort of suspension or pivot point? Who knows at this point but I’m not sure...
