    N-numbers: bending the rules?

    Only civilian, private and commercial aircraft are required to have "N" numbers. Aircraft operated by federal government agencies and the military do not normally have "N" numbers.

    Beachner V8 Special

    I thought I would "bump" this thread again. I am still looking for a set of plans for the Beachner V-8 Special. If anyone has a set they would like to part with, I would appreciate it if you let me know.

    experimental help

    I suggest you take a look at the Panther. It is within your budget and does most of what you want to do. As an extra feature, it is also trailerable. FlyPanther.net
