    Why so much $$$ for tube and fabric J-3 type kits???? Engines at 12K for +/- 100hp and build times of 500 to 2000 hrs for what is essentially a flying lawn chair. I can see all of this for something like a Lancair but a kit fox....

    Here is a link that is a good start. I know it's no Kit Fox but the design principles could be applied.
