Airworthiness and certification requirements are not operating requirements, except in cases where they are.
For example, in FAA certification requirements, maneuvering speed is a minimum speed, while for operation, it is a maximum speed.
So why do you want to move it to ELSA to do maintenance if you plan on taking the course? I assume the course you are referring to is for the repairman certificate. You don't need the repairman certificate to perform maintenance on an ELSA. Anyone can maintain an ESLA just as with any other experimental. But you do need a repairman certificate to maintain SLSA. Now, if you just mean the two day course to do the annual condition inspection, then ok, you do need it for that. But if you mean the 15 day course then that is only required for SLSA. Now, you might just have not expressed yourself correctly or I might have misunderstood but you may want to revisit the requirements. Personally I'd recommend keeping it as SLSA and doing the 15 day course. The money saved on the DAR and the two day course could help a bit with the 15 day course costs.

Right. I said that badly. I want to be able to do my own annual inspections, thus the 16 hours course (LSRI). The fact that it's experimental will let me play with the panel stuff. (Within reason.) I shouldn't have used the word "maintenance," I guess. Or used it more selectively.
The repairman certificate lets you do ONE thing, and one thing only, for an ELSA -- sign off on the condition inspection. That only requires the 2-day class, not the 2-week class. The benefit of ELSA is being able to modify it as you see fit, as long as you stay within LSA limits.
Yeah. I know that. I was just questioning his logic based on how he phrased his post.
