    t can you show us some pictures of the setup been trying to imagine your setup but a picture would be helpful. Does it have air conditioned. Being you live in Florida I would hope so it can be dam hot down there.
     
  2. Ok, fine!! I have taken the day off but I guess I can snap a pic...lol
    The green one is the previous shed/shop, the grey is new. The white ramp door I built to replace the cheap and un sealable roll up door and it is hooked up to a winch cause it is heavy. The siding from the back of the green shed will be used to replace both ends of the grey one. The roof between them will simply be a 25' sheet of rubber roofing material creating a 24' long valley. Maybe in a year or so I will recover it as a single peak, but not now I'm tired. There is another ten foot section of lean-to that still need's to be added to the left and on the right a new patio will be added in stead of just a lean-to. Also, the mobile home to the distant right will be removed from the property after the mother-in law is gone leaving that front acre+ an open view, maybe put up a nice wood fence across the front at the road. The silverish structure to the left in the tree's is a barn of the only close neighbor I have, whom stays to himself.

    That looks like a nice piece of property almost big enough to make a runway and have your own private field. Well when you get your plane buildings built you will not be short of space. Looking good.well maybe in five years you which you made it twice as big it is always like that.

  4. I do have a run way, 650' long and 100' wide, or as wide as I need it. The property is seven acres, that shown is one acre abutting the road with a rectangle of the remaining six. The outside may be a bit odd with the double peaks but the inside will be more than big enough at 24'x26'.

    Plane on snow skies would be a lot of fun in your backyard. Stand out of the rain undercover and fly an old beater with skies. There is enough water there to do that.

    Hi Acerc, have a question I am flying a big AMR Stick with my DA150. It is big long plane with huge wings and I am thinking of something a little smaller and aerobic, to transport in my minivan. I would like to strip everything off the Stick and put it into a new plane. So my question is that I believe the planes that are the smallest and with the biggest engines are Bi-planes. So can you help in which one and the easier to fly. It does not have to be scale just a good flyer, some thing I can take to the field and put 100 gallons through it I love flying.
     
  8. For that DA 150 even a bipe will be big at around 86"ws. EMHW has a few versions of the Pitts and Ultimate's, Skip model designs has a few versions of the Pitts as well. PAU has an Ultimate but list a DA 120 as the top, guess that one would depend on you. Somebody else make's an Ultimate but I can't think of it right now.
    If it were me and I was going to build it I would go with EMHW's 2.43 Pitts, 2.20 Challenger although it may be a tight engine fit or the 2.15 Ultimate. I have the 2.43 Pitts and the 2.20 Challenger and could verify the cowl if you should choose that direction.

  9. The shop is getting much closer and most definitely will be done this week. Here is a shot of the front, waiting on the metal to put the roof on and the floor is slowly being completed between rains. On the inside the center wall is nearly done, won't take a day to finish up. Still have not decided if I am going to do any finish work, might just wait until I have rested and played some to get in the mood to do mud work.

  10. The burn hole to the left was 300' long and has been filled in well over half way, it will be finished this winter and become the new run way.
