    Timeless tale... cutting aluminum

    Before I start going to town using snips to cut out some aluminum ribs, I was wondering what you all determined was the best method to cut thin aluminum in the long run. water jet/CNC worth the cost/setup? Good ole snips and scotchbrite? Patience but covered in aluminum shards from a router...

    Acro sport or Acro duster?

    I was looking at two place aerobatic planes that could be capable, not necessarily competitively, of participating in beginner and sportsman that were more affordable than an s-2. From what I've seen, single seaters aren't bad but 2 place aerobatics are an expensive combination.
