No Roger, no change of platform for me.
For the photography that I have done over the years https://www.airserv.co.za/galleries/ there is no finer aircraft - where else can you fly alone, with camera in hand, orbiting the target target with precision using feet only, whilst feeling the aircraft's behavior, no risk of a spin and with supreme confidence in the engine. In fact, if my Cheetah had to be replaced and you lined up a variety of 10 different LSA for me to choose from, I would go for the exact same again.
As said in my advert "Reason for selling; diminished usage with only quarterly flights" which is due to the Tsunami of drones having slaughtered my business and with it, the disposable income to play with aeroplanes. Its a very sad day and when I hand over the log book, there will be tears.
Thanks for writing and you keep well. Cheers.
