EXPERIMENTAL N923DT, The best description is: Fun, feels like a little fighter, it is fast and economical. Completed in January 2008, with TT1012hrs
You may wonder about the raked back wind screen and what the visibility is like. But, once airborne nearly everyone is pleasantly surprised at how good the visibility actually is.
The seats are very comfortable and lean back to about the same angle as an F-16 seat.
The plane has a stick and uses torque tubes for the ailerons and a push-pull tube for the stabilator, it is very responsive, requires a lite touch, but is also very stable. Gentle turns take a little nudge on the stick to start the roll and another nudge to stop when you get the bank angle you want. Little to no rudder is required.
The plane uses a stabilator and anti-servo tab instead of a conventional horizontal stabilizer, elevator, and trim tab. While N923DT does not have an auto-pilot it can be trimmed to fly hands off.

All instruments are electric, powered by a Plane Power Alternator, with duel batteries. No vacuum pump to wear out.
The ignition is duel E-Mag P-114 self powered ignition system with NGK BR 8EIX Iridium spark plugs. No antiquated magnetos to fail.
This plane is the epitome of simplicity and reliability.
