    Low and Slow......and quiet ?

    You can take a 150mph airplane and fly low and slow if you use the throttle and keep it just above stall unless of course the aircraft stalls at 90mph and think of the fuel you will save. I think many guys are worried about getting something that requires no PPL to operate.

    Most Beautiful Aircraft Ever Built

    As far as retracts on the T-mono I'm amazed they where able to fit the system into the root wing. I look at mine and say ?? on how they did it. Many homebuilts such as the VP, Mini Max, and Fly Baby would sure look better and preform better if they could get the gear up out of the slip stream. IMO

    Flaglor Scooter ?

    After looking at the prints I think this plane would easily be built from square Alum tube other were the engine comes into play but even that doable. I would myself would not scale up to a two place but even that would be a mission accomplished. A VW pulled it around and heavier weight plane...

    Wanted Flaglor Scooter plans

    I have a set of the original prints and for those who are thinking of a first build I'd stick with the Mini-max or VP. IMO

    What did you do on your airplane project today?

    VB: I get the same type of response every time the wife goes down stairs to do laundry. Been thinking of bringing the plane up stairs to the living room. What did I do on my plane today ? Went and picked a few flowers because I need more wood. :pilot:

    KR2 and Taylormono plane

    Dropped by to show a test fit going on with the fuel tank. Took only one cut to instrument panel to get the height needed and now to get some mounting tabs welded on along with a hand full of elbows and so on. The black bolt on cap will be replaced with a Alum plate with fill neck welded in...

    Skis and floats

    The floats would have to hold up the GVW and enough HP to get up. Maybe a set of puddle jumpers that can handle the weight. As far as skies you'ed have to get the aircraft out on the snow and see if they will hold it up.

    49 Aronaca Chief North Dakota 65 Cont.

    Drove over and took a peak and a bust in my opinion. I offered to give him 2500 for the 65 Cont but he does not want to part out at this time. Fabric has more dust then paint and strut fitting mount appeared to be bent also. I will try and share any aircraft that shows up locally in my area...
