    Bamboo?? Interesting....

    Howdy folks: Below is a post that came up in the yahoo Ragwing Aircraft group. Pretty interesting. Thought I'd copy it and post it here too. I know, my brother recently bought some of that flooring, and it is some durable, HARD stuff, and really not all that heavy. If I didn't already have all...

    Question for you welders..

    Dana, Good question too. I used the smallest tip I could find, but still I kept burning holes in the tube. (4130 x .058). That link that Mike has....thats ther exactly one I've been looking for. Thats the same one that the guy on the EAA welding hint (help) videos uses! Looks a lot easier to...

    Fisher v.s. Ragwing

    xj, I thought it was an option. No big deal. Not sure about this either, but a Baby Great Lakes is a hand full of airplane too! You should get with someone like CFIIDave, or a GOOD aerobat instructor before hand. Too much airplane-not enough pilot has been the cause for many a mishap! Ask JFK...

    Question for you welders..

    You betcha Ice. Where you want me to send it? I seen that picture about 5 years ago, and immediately adopted it. My dad's mom was a full blood Apache, so I figure I got bragging rights! John quote=AVI;33755]Badger: That's one cool avatar!! Can you send a larger image?

    Fisher v.s. Ragwing

    Well, you'll love the Fishers then. When I got mine, you couldnt buy just the plans.....you HAD to buy the kit(s), so I was stuck. Somebody said somewhere that these new owners are going to start selling kits again, so maybe? Personally, I'll never buy a "kit" anything again. You pay for a LOT...

    Fisher v.s. Ragwing

    I CAN tell you this much, for sure... Being one who has already built a Koala 202 (see xj's avatar), and being in the middle of building Roger's RW-11 (Rag-a-bond), I can say without a doubt that the plans that you get from the Fisher folks, will be 10 fold better than the ones you'll get...

    Zenith CH-701 Plans Unused

    Funny bud....I did think about that very thing, but this guy.....just what he was saying and the way he was saying it, made me trust him. He's a **** good actor I bet, because I felt as safe as if I were sending the money to my mother. And true, the "cheap plans-credit card" was about the way...

    Zenith CH-701 Plans Unused

    Casey, Thanks for the concern, but as of today, still nothing. I'm sure I got took, but I'll guarentee you it sure as hell wont happen again. And I'm a firm believer that one day, some way, he'll get his due. No doubt. People like him usually do. To me personally, it's not worth the...

    Zenith CH-701 Plans Unused

    Yea, ol Bill learned well, didn't he? I'm not going to make a big stink about 140 bucks. I am a FIRM believer in the saying "What goes around, comes around." He'll no doubt get his due someday....no doubt. And with any luck, it'll be from someone he stung before, getting "even", as it were...

    Zenith CH-701 Plans Unused

    Thanks for the info Joe. I didn't know all that. I paid him with a credit union money order, but dont ask me where my copy of it is. I reckon by now, it's out at the dump somewhere. I used to keep them, but never had need to use one for anything....so anymore I just throw them down somewhere...

    Re: Zenith CH-701 Plans Unused -SCAM- Stefan, I'll be go to hell. Yep, he told me that was his name, but everybody called him Jim-Bob.....said he was a high time crop duster, and he used a 701 that he'd "just bought" to do small fields and stuff around there locally. (The 701 must have been...
