I am looking for something plans built along the lines of a Phantom I. I would prefer strut braced wings, and capable of mild aerobatics. Are there any proven aircraft like that out there? Light sport is ok since I have my PPL anyway.
You got lucky. Around here they are impossible to find used, and if you do find one, the price is outrageous. There's one at out local field that gets flown 2-3 times a week on average, and the guy does acro with it every single flight. He's never had any sort of problems with it at all, despite having 2500 hrs or so on it. It's definitely a sturdy design.Yea, your probably right. And from what I have just read about the Fighter on this forum, it may not be a very good design.
I'm actually getting ready to buy a used Phantom. It needs a bit of work but the price is right.
