Sure started 11-28-2014 finished 04-07-2018
I started with a bare fuselage from a Kitfox model one that was untouched and built the plane that I wanted around it. I wanted to use the standard early kitfox airfoil for the STOL performance I used heaver spars and stronger wing internals.
Things that I changed Designed and built
Wing struts
wing tips
Cowling
landing gear
tail feathers
turtle deck
Exhaust
Brakes
taller tail
Bigger elevator
bigger rudder
Seats
Flight controls
engine cooling system
There is so many that i have forgotten about too
Fitted a Jabiru 2200 85hp
there are many areas in the fuselage that I cut apart and made better, far to many to list.
There was very few parts on this plane that I could buy and just bolt in but I sure love how it turned out. Still working out the bugs before I try to fly it.
