  • Ready to Build!

    Good Evening Everyone!

    After a couple years of interest in experimental aviation and a year on this forum, I am excited to announce that Plans #1515B arrived earlier this week and I will begin building very soon. The build will be a family project with my three sons, dad, and grandfather helping when they are able. I will start with the wings as a scratch build and, as the build progresses re-evaluate if I want to exchange time for money and look at some parts from the factory. Looking forward to sharing updates and asking lots of questions soon!

    Sounds like you have lots of hands to help. Nice! My building partner and I did everything from scratch but if I had to choose I think I would take the fuselage as the quickbuild. I thought the wings were easier to understand and build. My partner did the heavy work of welding on the fuselage. I never would have learned that in time! Have fun with your family project. Eric
