Hi folks,

Anyone here building gazaile 2 here? I received my plans from Serge yesterday and want to to ask some few questions regarding C1, C2,..... Etc. The plans are good but I need heads up on how you guys started.

Cheers

Steve, I cant answer your question but have more questions for you:
  1. What engine are you planning on using?
  2. What is the anticipated build time for Gazaile 2?
  3. Is there a possibility of using CNC machining to reduce the build time?

Hi! Yes i'm a wanabe gazaile builder ;) but i can try or forward your question to Serge.
Btw there is a builder forum, you didn't get access?
And there is now a new gazaile 2 forum (I am the admin), more free (some people didn't like the way Serge handled his replies), more modern. I have yet to create the non-french section but go ahead I'm here for the translation.

Around 2000 to 3000h. Usually 3 to 5 years, depends on builder. Yes cnc can help, a lot of DXF files exist, for the 18mm plywood corners and firewall for exemple, or all the metal parts for the controls (you can buy them lasercut from Serge)

Hi,
Am not sure of which engine am going to use, but definitely am build g the ultralight version. So probably the Peugeot e vine will be my choice.
