I got the Unlimited stuff. Two problems: it is HEAVY. With the new prop,
the paint job and the sound deadener, I added 80 lb! Second, the metal foil
can cause problems with the antennas. I have the marker beacon ant. on the
floor and the ELT ant. on the roof. I had to cut out large pieced of foil.
Difficult to do and the material loses a lot of its consistancy.

The noise, however has deminished a whole lot. On my first flights with
nothing in the cabin, the noise was such that the radios hardly worked. Now
it's very comfortable. Not like in a car of course but with a set of
Lightspeed headsets I think I can fly forever without any problems.
