The elevator is quite powerful due to its size.
The R/STOL feels very different than the Horton STOL.

My mistake. My previous P337 had Riley A/C. It ran off the rear engine and wasn't as effective as Keith.

Ken,

What's the empty weight of the plane you just bought?

Too heavy. Aren't they all? About 3450 lb I think

I must agree. I came out of an E-series Bonanza, which is a pure joy to fly. Light on the controls, instant response. Just pure aviation magic.

The 337 has me thinking I'm flying an airliner again.

I would go so far as to say that the 337 would be a good trainer for those planning on moving up to the big jets.

You'll start out on a regional CRJ or ERJ, which both have the engines on the rear of the fuselage. Pretty darn similar to Center-Line-Thrust!

I feel like the R/STOL planes are two planes with one yoke. The handling at cruise is COMPLETELY different than the low speed handling. It's wild having two planes in one package.

My Beech is an absolute joy to fly, but it won't land in the same places this will and doesn't have the same amazing view when flying low over terrain. They both put grins on my face.

Unfortunately I haven't had the time to fly it much yet but this weekend I hope to get it up to altitude and go somewhere.
