    Congrats, Frank, looks fantastic (and sounds great too in the other clip). I can't wait to see some in flight videos and to hear your thoughts on the Verner Scarlett 3 once you've had more time flying it. Bravo!

    You have 13 stripes on the rudder, starting and ending in red. Your obviously a superior craftsman and know what your doing. ;) I'm sure your LE will fly great!

    I met a guy called Les Homan at Oshkosh this year in the Ultralight area who flew in with his LE XL he called ORV (for off road vehicle) that's sporting a 3 cylinder Verner as well. The planes designer was there too :) Here's a pic.
