Well, they fly fine, heat may be a problem, depending on the plane you purchase, but that can be solved either by improving the heat or electric socks.

Never heard of a defrosting problem.

Make sure the canard counter weight ice shield is on, a small simple piece you can add if it is missing. Also I would install a heated pitot. I can tell you how i made mine.
