The StingSport comes very well equipped with many features as standard equipment that would be found as options on other aircraft.  The StingSport is a dream to fly with great visibility, comfort and safety features like a GRS ballistic parachute system.  Compare standard equipment in the StingSport with “options” required on most other LSA aircraft to be equal and the price is not so different.

Aviation experts are saying that carbon fiber composite construction has many advantages.  Composite is not subject to stress fatigue as metal is and can be much easier to repair than metal.  Corrosion is not a problem for composites like metal and they are much lighter.  It is hard to make metal look as smooth and fluid in curves as that found in composite construction.

Maybe.  If the aircraft has all the equipment necessary for night or IFR conditions and the pilot is at least a private pilot with the proper endorsements, then yes night and even IFR flight is possible.  Individuals with only a Sport Pilot certificate are restricted to day VFR only.
