Ben, it's the 750 Cruzer. I'll be visiting the factory in September for their "Open Hangar Day" event, and plan to take a lot of pictures. :)

Me too, Karl!

I logged 10 hours in the 701 (the smaller, original STOL) but it's just a tad too small for me. Tremendous fun though!
When they came out with the 750 STOL, I was immediately interested. Then later they did the faster Cruzer, so it was pretty much a "had to do it" thing. :)

In my area, I'd probably go for the STOLCH750. Would be nice to fly into a lot of the areas in the mountains.
In Texas, with the vast flat land, the faster plane makes more sense.

The funny thing is, you really don't give up much of the STOL performance in the Cruzer, other than it has smaller tires. I've seen some builders who plan to put "semi-tundra" tires on the Cruzer and have a bit of both flavors.
