    Airplane for the Common Denominator

    Can't be stored outside. Excluding #6 makes it the RV. I think that the Thorp and Mustang violate #4.

    Airplane for the Common Denominator

    I think you missed my point. I was agreeing with the concensus on this thread in regards to RV's and I was suggesting that being an outlier is okay. Being content and grateful is the most important aspect in wherever you are on the bell curve.

    Airplane for the Common Denominator

    I agree that the RV class checks off the most of the boxes in the right proportions. The ideal plane is the one you have. I am grateful for what I have; it isn't the fastest sexiest thing on earth but it's mine. I know that the RV's are less of a compromise when it comes to specifications but...

    Getting old and depressed...

    I wanted to move to Seguin but for some reason I can't recall we couldn't make it work. I would rather be flying out of San Antonio instead of IAH sometimes.

    I have plans for the Mustang 2 which is very similar to the Thorp T18. If you wanted to meet up somewhere I could bring them so you could see what is involved in building that type of aircraft.

    Getting old and depressed...

    I drove through your area last week on my way to the Colwell clinic. Being by Hooks puts you close to a couple of airparks out in Brookshire. I'm further out west but my plane is in Mineola until I can get the updates finished.

    Mold Material That Can Be Laser Cut

    Interesting option on the fanfold insulation. I wonder if I could snag a little piece before buying 200 sq. ft. of it.

    Mold Material That Can Be Laser Cut

    I designed a layered mold for my landing gear with a plan to laser cut the layers from 1/4" MDF. I have tried 2 different kinds of MDF but am unable to cut through it. Is there another material that is cheap and can be laser cut? I am considering cardboard with a coat of body filler as an...
