I have had some flying experience, not a whole lot, that includes some solo hours in Tigermoth. Right now I am planning to get hold of an either complete or almost complete Dragonfly 2 to own and fly. Anyone has any input for me? Will greatly appreciate. Am doing my flight training in Chacago area currently.

The Tiger Moth and the Dragonfly are probably on the opposite ends of the spectrum for all handling and flight characteristics. So what you are saying is that you have had some experience driving a 1984 Chrysler minivan and you want to buy a (150HP Ninja "rice rocket" motorcycle, or a Mini Cooper, or a 4 Wheel Drive rock crawler Jeep).

If the Dragonfly works for what kind of flying YOU need to do, then you need to get some instruction or experience in the Dragonfly, Quickie, Q-2, Q-200 type of airplane if you can. If you cannot do that, then I would use Burt Rutan's old suggestion of getting checked out in the Grumman AA-1 "Yankee" series of airplanes.
