Thanks for the kind words. The second one is coming along building airplanes takes a long time in my experience years. I have watched him build several full size planes in his life. He built a Cessna 180 pieced together from 4 different airplanes it had a brown and white cabin, red and white wings, and a blue and white tail.

He built a Pitts special, and a Sonerai 1 also. All have taken years to complete. I will take some video of the second airplane he has the wings done but the fuse has yet to be started. He has the plans and has rescaled them for this high performance version. I have yet to ask if the new aerobatic version will be Part 103 FAR compliant but with a 4 cylinder engine i doubt it.

Thanks
