If it really were a jump-takeoff machine, that would be one thing. What we're seeing here, however, is a wobbly takeoff behind the power curve. Poor and risky technique. Things would not go well if the engine quit on takeoff, given that technique.

On the design side, the tail surfaces are far too small. Because they also are not symmetrical about the prop axis, there is a significant, difficult-to-manage torque roll and yaw.

There certainly is a touch of 'lurch rattle and roll about it...but no denying it is a short take off.

Not sure I’d ‘jump' at the chance of having a ride though.
