I built an Easy Riser a long time ago.
Then when I wanted to build a real plane I went to Oshkosh several times
Read Kit magazines, traveled to Oregon and flew the RV-3, and to Canada a flew the Rebel
and sat in the CH301 with the canopy closed at Oskosh and hated it as it heated up instantly.
Thought I wanted the Avid Amphib and went to Caldwell
and eventually just bought an old PA28-180. Flew it for about 8 yrs and sold it. Done !

I know guys who haven't FINISHED their kit planes for over 10 yrs or more in some cases .

Now a days Kits cost MORE than my Cherokee then you have to put an engine on it and some instruments !
GAWD how the prices have gone asymptotic !

Even the CH7xx kits are over $19 grand base. No motor No Instruments. $40k EASY before you are done.
