Just picked up this model the other week at a relatively cheap price (I couldn't build and cover it for this price if I put it together from a similar kit).
The idea was to try and put together a pattern style plane using equipment that I had available...in the hope to relive my earlier flying days when I had a FunKey Skyleader .46 kit (no longer in production).
The plan is to power it with a trusty O.S. 120ax and I am hoping there is enough room in the cowl to hide the muffler using the original PowerBox muffler in the Pitts style configuration. Given I am doing this on a budget I don't want to go out and buy another Pitts muffler for the project and the 120ax has run flawlessly using the original setup. I am sure it will be well overpowered but hopefully manageable.
Have read some negative reviews of the earlier versions of this kit but the latest one looks like a ripper for the money.
Interested to hear from anyone else who is currently flying one.
