    Mazda 13b w/ Tracy Redrive I have seen this advertised before. Does anyone know the story behind it? Is it worth making an offer on? What is fair considering I want to be as 'cheap' as possible and don't mind waiting a year or more before...

    Question for the mods

    Well I bought plans, so I need to start a log here. I don't want a sterile record of my progress, I want an interactive log where everyone is welcome to respond, critique and offer suggestions. I am old enough to have my own strong opinions but young enough I don't care if someone disagrees with...

    Watching his videos brought a little color back to my graying beard...... Went back and re-read some of the discussion of a conventional class quickie style idea but it devolved without alot of resolution..... My "DIY Guy Inspiration" this morning was wandering how quickly you could build a...

    Trifoils discussion

    Do you have information on the builder? If I followed what you said the sequence went like this: Plane was built . . . The builder donated it to someone he believed would find it a good home . . . The recipient sold it to you unable to transfer registration as he never had...

    2016 - Flying RV

    There are certainly lots of older posts on this dream, but since it is something that interests me I figured I would start fresh again. 1. What features would you want? 2. What would you limit your size to? 3. Realistically how small of engines could you use to accomplish this? For me, I like...

    I would like to discuss this further, but do not want to cloud up the Skigull thread. (perhaps a moderator can move the applicable posts here if they feel that is appropriate.) My experience in this is limited to 180s/206s/beavers/otters/Supercubs on floats/amphibs, both aluminum(nothing more...
