It's been a couple of years since I built mine, but only I year since I rebuilt it
I concur with most of what's been said, but mine flies well (very scale-like) with the LA 46. I did need to add quite a bit of nose weight (moving the CG further forward than what the plans call for) to eliminate that "It's gonna stall" feeling.
One of the best flying days I had last year was breezy, and I would bring the Pete across the field and just slow it down until I found a little updraft from the ridge at the edge of our field, and it would just hang there stopped for several minutes at a time.
BTW, the rebuild was because of a stupid mistake--turning the wrong way, too low, on a botched landing attempt, and it cartwheeled onto the field. You wouldn't know it to look at the plane now, though. Mine is covered with Sig Coverall and doped. Cream and maroon, like a Pietenpol Air Camper.
