Here is my favorite photo of my little Corby Starlet CJ 1. This is a popular home built in Australia and New Zealand. There are only 4 of these flying in the USA. It is of wood/fabric construction powered by a VW type engine of about 65 HP. It stalls at 40 KTS and I cruise at 120 KTS. The empty weight is 588 pounds and it has a 5 hour fuel range. In my 50 odd years of aircraft ownership I think this Light Sport plane tops them all. I still enjoy doing Sport Acro at 82 years of age and love the low cost of flying my Corby.
