This RS-15 is quite a ship, near as I can tell. Built by Jim Fisher, apparently a real craftsman. Dave Nelson profiled the wings and added winglets. Fisher built it with a front-hinged canopy that features a one pull quick release for emergency bail-out. It also has a gear up warning buzzer, oxygen, electric w/audio and mechanical (Schuman TE) varios, and full mylars on the wing seals.

With only 500 hours on it and it has apparently been well cared for, it looks more like a 5 year old factory ship than a 25 year old homebuilt.
