Re: Sling TSI High Wing

Personally I hope that the new plane will have a different aircraft type designation like "Sling H1" as I presume it's performance characteristics won't be quite the same to the Sling TSi and it will cause confusion.

Since the Sling TSi is gaining popularity quite quickly and (I'm hoping) there will be many of them in the sky in the future.

Unless both planes have the same climb & cruise characteristics (which is unlikely), it will be quite a mouthful having to call up ATC every time with "XX Tower, Experimental Sling TSi High Wing N12345 is 5 miles out".

I guess we won't know though until the first High Wing will actually be built and flown.

I hope they get this ready for release soon. I like the Sling TSI, but I really like the high wing.

If I remember correctly, we are supposed to see a flying prototype at SnF.

It's also up on the official Sling Aircraft website now.

I've set up a new Model specific forum for the new Sling HW, now that we know it's official designation.
