Economy cruise at 2500rpm gives approx 65/70mph @ around 10lph mogas.
The take off performance is outstanding with a lift off within 50m.
See https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e5QkZY-RvIA for take off and

The 3 stages of flap give the potential to land in the smallest of strips and the "flotation" tyres can handle "boggy strips" with ease.
Under MANN 2051 The useable fuel capacity has been increased to 70 litres (standard 40L) by replacing the 2 standard plastic tanks with upgraded composite (g.r.p.) wing tanks, the same as the Reality Escapade.
The view out is excellent. The cowling doesn’t impinge on your line of sight at all, and you can see the horizon ahead even with the tailwheel down. The MATCO tail wheel assembly (new in Dec 13) is both steerable and fully swivelling. The independent heel brakes allow easy ground handling.
The pilot seating position is adjustable (3 position). N.B. The aircraft cannot be flown from the rear seat. It is purely a passenger seat.
There is a luggage hammock behind the passenger seat.
One of the "Jewels in the Crown" of the Easy Raider has to be the wing fold. It is very simple and completed single handed in around 2 mins. After removal of the turtle deck, there are just two pins to remove at the root of the leading edges and the wings fold back neatly against the fin. Then the aircraft can fit into a 9ft wide space, thus reducing hangar fees. Better still, put it onto a trailer and take it home, eliminating hangar fees altogether.
With the wings folded the dimensions are:-
21' long x 9' wide x 6' high
Included within the price is :-
A Lynx Micro system intercom with two Lynx Headsets.
A brand new (Feb 2017) 8.33KHz Icom A6.
Buy it, fuel it and fly it.
