Found this on U-tube, pretty impressive. This was a record setting S2 down under that has disappeared since it's sale. Cool airplane.

I still believe the R912 is the perfect modern power-plant for the Sonerai...

That is an impressive climb rate!  Any educated guesses on a number?

He mentions in his "AIRCRAFT DEVELOPMENT STORY" tab that he had "Above 105 knots however, performance was good with a 1600 ft per minute climb rate and good top-end speed."

Yowsa!  ;D
