    Project Bush Demon

    This, I completed the written before flight training and got a loan from AOPA so as not to drag it out for lack of finances.

    Yeah, if you're not proficient in 40 hrs you need a different instructor.

    Solidworks question

    Narfi, I see some grey lines in a grid pattern and some curved darker lines. Are you trying to annotate the points at the intersections of the dark lines to the lines in the grid?

    Best decision ever.....JUST DO IT !!!

From what I understand it's just finding a supplier for the crank machining that's holding things up.

    Thanks for the comments, all are being taken into consideration and appreciate the fine work that has been done by Mr. Poberezny. This is basically a new airplane because of all the modifications, weight saving is part of the goal, plus I like the what ifs. Like Scrapper, I want to participate...
