    G-info shows a 462 engined Blade as SSDR.

    I am not a flex jockey, but possibly the 912 engined version has too high an empty weight to allow a decent SSDR payload?

    Blase 912 IIRC is a 390kg microlight. Worth looking at the TADS, but might be a go-er for SSDR.

    I'd have thought so. Subtract an 86kg PX from 390kg and you have 304kg. Lose another 4kg with fuel or anything else you can think of, and you're legal SSDR.
