Randy is building one of these from plans.
A big job. I've seen some of the assemblies.
He's brought them to some meetings. They
really look nice. Al has his flying.
A new member, Pat has one of these in the works.
4 years so far but only a couple months work left.
None of these in the chapter but a nice
looking airplane. Easy to build but expensive.
I'd have to sell my house
to buy one of these.
