The airplane comes nicely equipped with:

3 blade tapered tip composite warpdrive that provides better thrust but is easy on the engine. The experimental version has a 2 blade wood prop. It is also less noisy.

It comes with E-gearbox reduction, battery and built-in electric starter so the airplane can be started with a button push instead of hand proping it like the experimental version (B gearbox).

It comes already with oil injection so the pilot can just add fuel when flying to another airfield instead of having to prepare the oil-gas mix in an strange airfield like the experimental.

It has a 12 gallon tank in place of the standard 6 gallon tank in the experimental version so that the airplane can fly longer distances instead that just around the patch.

It has K&N filters for easier maintenance. They can be washed and re-used. The standard foam-type I the experimental had to be sustituted every 50 hrs. It comes with larger diameter 15" wheels for softer landings from un-improved airstrips and smoother taxi. The experimental has smaller 13" wheels.

It comes with a double panel for a digital engine info system and analog flight instruments that allow checking the engine in flight and offers a more professional flight experience. The experimental version does not come with instruments (except a Hall) in its most basic version.

It comes with black max wheel brakes for better braking action in very short fields and precision teleflex table for firmer and more responsive feel.
