I thought this was a great interview telling the story from the designer Miro. Very inspiring!

The dam yaw pedals work backwards in every flying machine if you ask me. 😉
Clyde Cessna felt the same way. When he flew check flights in newly built Travel Air airplanes, he had the mechanics reverse the rudder controls to suit his idea of the way things ought to be. After the flight, they put them back before delivery. Nowadays I don't think this would be considered a best-practice.

Great photos, thanks for posting. I was very surprised that poly V belts were used and such thin ones. Much cheaper than my synchronous belts. The engineering is wonderful, you can't appreciate it until you get close up.

Rene: Merci, beaucoup for sharing your close-up photos!
Is safe to assume the green tubing extending out of each fuel tank connecting top & bottom to be fuel sight "gauges"?

Were you able to see any flights of it while there @ BLOIS?
