N 156RM was inspected by the FAA on May 3 and flown the first time on
May 4. After several take off and landings the BH out performs my 150hp
citabria, the controls are more responsive. This plane flys fanstastic
its Stol alright. The only problem a bad tailwheel got to get rid of the
Maule and replace it with either a Scott or a Bob Wheel. My first flight
was over an hr, had to quit because of shortage of fuel on hand. Got to
get my fuel barrel filled. Its hard to keep from flying it, FANTASTIC!
