There have been issues with shipping of the parts and templates. They were truely lost in the mail. Once they arrived it was on to the next step.

This is where I open myself up to public ridicule. If you want to blame someone, blame me!

Yes, there was kind of a false start but I am working on it now. For the record I bought the kit, and agreed to assemble it using the instructions provided as a beta build. If this sounds great to you, you are wrong! Take the hobby you love so much and add timelines and deadlines and it is no longer a hobby, it's a JOB. What's worse,is it is a job that you don't get paid for. You will know when you get there. When you say to yourself I HAVE to work to this plane (instead of GET to).

As I said, I am doing the beta kit to verify the instructions and parts. This is to verify that the builder (Steve Neill) has transfered enough of his excellent knowledge to the end user to build the kit as he would have.

There are many times on ezone that people don't get the meaning of what was written and take it the wrong way. The same thing happens on a new model build. The author has a very good idea what has to transpire to assemble the project. He should, he has done it more than once. To the new customer, they are starting from square one.

Customers can be categorized into several groups:
1. The ones that pitch the instructions and build the kit.
2. The ones that give the instructions the once over and look for the CG.
3. the ones that read them back to front and memorize them before touching the plane.

The idea is to give all the people what they want, every time. This means that Dave will ship no plane until it's time. It is not worth it to ship a partial plane.

Now I have to get back to my REAL job (the one that pays the bills) so I can get home to work on finishing out the plane.

Getting off soapbox. Thanks for listening all. Sorry if I ruffled any feathers. It truely, was not my intent.
