If you ever need any kind of info or support or deals concerning O2 or fire protection, shoot me a PM. I will fix you up.
Mine is a Backcountry.
I do not have fire suppression or oxygen on mine, but thanks.
Is that what you sell?
Nothing is nicer than flying my plane to a remote beach, or grass field, and camping.
It will land nearly anywhere.
I can land in a gravel pit, old road, fields, even a sandy beach is fine, just need 300 feet for extra safety.
Last summer I landed it on top of a mountain, chocked the wheels good with rocks, and walked around up there and snapped pics for a few hours.
Got back in and took off within about 50 feet.
Point it into the wind, and its nearly helicopter like if you want it to be.
My friend wa swith me and nearly crapped his pants when i put it down on a mostly rock surface, with patches of snow, no more than 100 feet long and 30 feet wide, at 7,400 feet elevation.
Just lean it out before takeoff is all.
