For one reason or another neither of those aircraft went past the "sitting in the cockpit" stage. While looking for Dragonflies here in Canada; so I could talk to the owners about local operations, and less than 10 of these aircraft flying in Canada, one turned out to be in the city where I live.

We were unable to go for a demo flight at the time but we parted ways with Patrick indicating C-GKPG might be for sale. Eight weeks later, all the stars lined up and we went for an amazing flight. Afterwords, I caught Patrick in a "moment of weakness" and made KPG mine!
