Do you have confidence in your CFI? Does he/she have time in type? There are plenty of instructors out there who think "they can fly the box it came in," until they see their first tiny homebuilt with dubious wheel alignment and one brake that pulls way better than the other. Just be sure your expert is an expert. This is from a guy who used to do friends' test flights for fun when I was in my 20s. Now that I am in my sixties, forget that!
