The "H-29B 1500 series" is intended as an upgrade to the H-295 and an engine varient with a fuel injected engine and some minor changes to the electric flaps and trim. Because of incurable problem with the injected engine running rough at low rpm power setting, and many tests with lycomings help the intended upgrade was dropped 11/73, TC amendment not pursued and it was converted to 1400 series aircraft c/n 1458, only 1 built.
