Glad to find a home-builder forum that appears to be active. I am not a pilot yet. I am probably going to start lessons this spring. I'm 51 years old, and maybe finally financially able to fly. We shall see. I have been a subscriber to Kitplanes for about 15 years. I plan on building my own plane from plans I develop very close to the Sling Tsi, but with a Subaru engine or some other auto conversion. I will have a lot of questions pertaining to how exactly flight controls are routed, connected, concealed with the fuselage and wing (IOW, not looking like an RC plane), etc.
