      Terry, P130 plans are in french (as of other french planes as Jodels) + I have some addendum with structural changes. Do You want them? I didn't bought MFI9 things from EBay , as it is sheetmetal.
      Other similar conception planes are sheetmetal ARV Super2 and old SNCAN N85x, with welded fuselage, 2-4place according version. Did You read all my messages? Maybe later build some towplane for Goat as Dragonfly.

      I could send You P130 plans + info and list of plans I collected over net, if have Your e-mail contact. Would be nice to know more about Cygnet fuselage - tubes material, diameter/wall. btw I also like airchairs - Goat, SuperFloater, Tempest and thinking about building

        I like the idea of a tubular fuselage as well. I could try to get a list of Cygnet tubes for you. Are P130 written in French? Did you buy MFI9 plans on eBay?

      Friends are building Wag-a-bond and I am thinking about building different plane, which I hope could be better. I also like Wittman Tailwind, but it need too much rework to fit in LSA, so maybe build as next project. I like idea MFI9 with welded fuselage, wooden wings - some kind of reworked Cygnet - newer airfoil, higher placed wing like on MFI9, P130 - lower dihedral and sweep, smaller tailplanes, wider cockpit .

      Terry, I have some flying history with HG, helos, gliders and UL planes, building of sheetmetal UL planes in friends factory, short TIG, acet, el. welding experience and almost zero experience with woodworking. Sheetmetal building of plane needs tools, so for me is good to build welded fuselage with wooden wings, or allwood plane, as friend helps with woodworking and I would learn.

      Terry, am thinking about building plane, as I like MFI9, Bolkow Junior, Pottier P130, collecting info about similar plane. I can weld by TIG, bought plywood and have many plans - now have to decide. Wag-a-bond and Piper clones are available, but MFI9 conception interresting me more. I have much photos, info, incl. P130 plans - could share, if You're interrested.

        Thanks for the message. I haven't decided if I want to move forward with Wag-a-bond or change to something else. I will be adding on a shop here in the next few months. I like MFI-9 and if I could find a MFI-15 I would probably jump on that. I like the P130 and also Bert Sisler's Cygnet. I've got Cygnet plans. I need to develop welding skills, getting harder as I get older. Please tell me more about your background.
