    Thanks for documenting your build here. I have most of the parts for this plane and will no doubt have some questions when I get started.

    I have wanted one for a number of years do not know how I missed this thread. Looked at the plane from Jtec several times really would like to buy one but it is a short kit and that is why I do not have one. If it was a full kit I would have one or maybe two. But buying all the parts separately and trying to get them can be difficult and expensive.
     
  7. I kept a spreadsheet for my build which I would be happy to share with you if you wish.

    Yes I would very much like that . I need all the help I can get to convince me to build the plane. I just love building kits. Does the spreadsheet have all the supplier details.

    Well just sat down and read the hole thing nice build and thanks for doing that. It looks like you spent 3 years building it. After reading the hole story I have a couple of questions.
    1. The wing struts is one of my biggest concerns with all the connections because I read you managed to them from aerworks and they no longer exist.
    2. In one of pictures in the background it looks like you also have a Decathlon, and so do I, how do the two plane compare in flying characteristics.
    Thanks for your help.
