    Bamboo?? Interesting....

    Howdy folks: Below is a post that came up in the yahoo Ragwing Aircraft group. Pretty interesting. Thought I'd copy it and post it here too. I know, my brother recently bought some of that flooring, and it is some durable, HARD stuff, and really not all that heavy. If I didn't already have all...

    Fisher v.s. Ragwing

    xj, I thought it was an option. No big deal. Not sure about this either, but a Baby Great Lakes is a hand full of airplane too! You should get with someone like CFIIDave, or a GOOD aerobat instructor before hand. Too much airplane-not enough pilot has been the cause for many a mishap! Ask JFK...

    Question for you welders..

    You betcha Ice. Where you want me to send it? I seen that picture about 5 years ago, and immediately adopted it. My dad's mom was a full blood Apache, so I figure I got bragging rights! John quote=AVI;33755]Badger: That's one cool avatar!! Can you send a larger image?

    Fisher v.s. Ragwing

    Well, you'll love the Fishers then. When I got mine, you couldnt buy just the HAD to buy the kit(s), so I was stuck. Somebody said somewhere that these new owners are going to start selling kits again, so maybe? Personally, I'll never buy a "kit" anything again. You pay for a LOT...

    Fisher v.s. Ragwing

    I CAN tell you this much, for sure... Being one who has already built a Koala 202 (see xj's avatar), and being in the middle of building Roger's RW-11 (Rag-a-bond), I can say without a doubt that the plans that you get from the Fisher folks, will be 10 fold better than the ones you'll get...

    Zenith CH-701 Plans Unused

    Funny bud....I did think about that very thing, but this guy.....just what he was saying and the way he was saying it, made me trust him. He's a **** good actor I bet, because I felt as safe as if I were sending the money to my mother. And true, the "cheap plans-credit card" was about the way...

    Zenith CH-701 Plans Unused

    Casey, Thanks for the concern, but as of today, still nothing. I'm sure I got took, but I'll guarentee you it sure as hell wont happen again. And I'm a firm believer that one day, some way, he'll get his due. No doubt. People like him usually do. To me personally, it's not worth the...
