If you fly a Cessna in the backcountry , this kind of STOL kit does make a big difference.

Does it change your cruise speed?

(I like the realistic comments by the way - "landing slower is better for strips where you might hit something, like I just did..."

Yes AoA indicator is awesome, lets you know exactly how much lift you got , which in the backcountry it is very useful.
