  1. You mention the Legend Cub as a “major competitor” to three of the ten above. When including its amphibious configuration, it challenges half the list. In sales, the Legend Cub surpasses the bottom third of the list combined. So why is it not mentioned? I suppose it’s in a class all its own since it’s the one that really does fly like a Cub.

  2. Pretty soon, LSA/GA new is going to price selves out of range for most… noted many LSA cost more then great used low hour GA. so if changes come to GA p23..???

  3. I have a remos absolutely the most fun you can have with your clothes on super tough landing gear ,some of my landings scare the crap out of you. But it keeps on taking it .

  4. Don,

    Agreed. My trainer was Remos N265RA. Hell of a plane, and took alot of student mistakes. Actually landed it in 27kt direct crosswind on my second Xcountry. Love that plane, though my CTSW is a bit more refined and more comfortable for longer 4-5 hour flights.

    I recommend anyone searching for a great LSA to check out the Remos and the Flight Design, though I probably wouldnt buy N265RA…. 😉

  5. I think a great project for plane and pilot mag would be to make a comprehensive book of LSA. They did a great GA book about 20 years ago and I used it extensively to preach the gospel of aviation.
