Love the 407. It is an absolute racecar. Plenty of power and like the previous responder pointed out it does run hot in the summer and in high altitudes. The hydraulic pedals are night and day compared to the L models. The FADEC is a nice system but don't get too comfortable during the start and do other tasks. It can fail and will cook an engine. Also, verify the throttle is completely in the fly position prior to take off. The NR/NP will show 100% with the throttle set at about 82-85 on the throttle. One more thing, when doing fadec ep's know that if the aircraft has a stiff fly detent you will have to roll pass that. You have more travel in the throttle which is additional power and you will need to use it in certain scenarios. Other than that have a blast!
