    Please spread the word.
    I Still own and operate the Team Mini-max LLC Company also.

    I thought I saw something about that recently. Best of luck!

    Only 3 posts since May 2020? Don't be such a stranger!

    Not to derail your announcement but, any update on the Epic Sport?

    Also, what engines will the Carlson Sparrow Sport use now that you can no longer buy the HKS700?

    Just a couple things need done and then the DAR Inspection, covid19 and funds put a delay.

    The Sparrow II choice of Hummel 76 HP VW or Rotax 582, or add your own Rotax 912
    Sparrow ultralight Rotax 277 28HP or Polini250 DS 36 HP
    Sparrow Sport Special Hirth F23 50 HP

    Regards,
    David Cooper

    The Sparrow II XTC looks like a very practical 2 seater/LSA, hope it can be made compatible with newer engine options like the viking 90, AM10 and even the aerovee or the 80HP jab

    And if you could somehow figure out a folding wing design for the II XTC you could make it a winner in the market

    I posted that, Jack. I just grabbed it off the internet; had no idea it was your photo!

    Your original is far clearer!

    All the shoots can't be as awesome as ours in Sedona. :D
