Some early one's had problems with min fuel/ weight and balance. Some people reckoned they needed wing and tail straps. I've never had any problems with them except mastering the Turbo V35B which was only one of dexterity that could be taught to a Chimpanze, (I mastered it). My favourite was the S model which had a phenomenal turn of speed. The aircraft itself was a derivative of the Mentor which was built to land on aircraft carriers or dropped from 50ft by idiot pilots.

You could say it's my favourite aeroplane.
