Hi! For valentine's day, my wife bought me plans for a Mustang II, which I would consider my "dream" airplane (cross country IFR platform). Ive been doing a lot of looking into it, and to equip it how I want and to build it is going to take at least 10-15 years. I'd like to get airborne before then. So, I was wondering if anyone has recommendations for an "around the patch" airplane. My criteria: 1) 2 seater (tandem preferred) 2) Open cockpit 3) Reasonably quick build 4) Kit availability is a plus 5) Can fly on a "cheaper" engine... VW, O-200, etc 6) Anything other than composite construction 7) Reasonably well-known design - I don't want to be a guinea pig 8) Mild acrobatics a plus Any thoughts? Thanks!
