Just read my new online version of kit planes today. A great write up of the Thatcher CX5 tandem. Now I see something that fits all my wants. Sheet metal low wing that runs on a Revmaster 2300. To say I'm impressed is an understatement. I've been feeling the industry for a project but kept going back to Sonex with a Revmaster. The CX5 is a great design and the VW seems to give it all I want. It is a sharp looking machine. The pre cut pre drilled kits are not there for a lot of the parts but a lot parts have dual functions so there are many of the same pieces used other places. Less pieces, less jigging. And it looks cheap enough without getting bit by prices. Aircraft spruce is a couple hours from here and a couple trips down the highway in my GMC and trailer an do a lot of hauling. Sonex, it's been fun.
