Default New biplane from BJCraft - BiSide version 2?

Saw that BJCraft is releasing a new biplane, Encourage.
From what pictures I could find, it looks very much like the BiSide biplane, just a new scheme?

Perhaps the new plane is designed around the new BJCraft belt drives and will come with laser cut ply mounts?

It also appears as though BJCraft is getting back into the 70 size airframe business again.

The re-released Fantasista 70 came out first (this is the 3rd version IIRC), and now there is apparently a 70 size Encourage biplane (similar to the BiSide 70 originally)
