    $$$ vs $$$$$ was why I chose the 170. And that sexy round tail.

    Awesome video and plane! I just finished watching it. For me it really was the low maintenance, all metal construction, low fuel consumption, and the back seats. Along with looks that only can be Trumped by the 195.

    Wow, awesome footage! I love the heads up AOA display - makes it seem even more impressive (even though it is supposed to make it easier) to see these approaches that spend the whole time on the backside of the power curve.

    Fly8MA also has some cool videos showing what a 170 can do.
