    That's the best looking VJ22 I've ever seen. Hope you enjoy wood working....the smell of spruce and plywood is fantastic.

    Hi Guys

    I am currently rebuilding a Stits Playboy SA-3A, that I bought as an insurance write off after a taxiing incident for just £650, thats $1000 for my friends across the pond. Damage has mainly been to the leading edges of the wings, hearing from any other stits owners and people with experience making aluminium leading edges would be great, as would any stits drawings

    all the best

    Jack

    I sure enjoyed many of the links to web pages and projects.
    I have been working on a Fisher Horizon 1 for exactly one year this week. I stopped working on March 23, and didn't resume until October. I am amazed at how quickly this plane is coming together. It is a PFA approved design, has been tested to destruction, and there are numerous flying examples. I expect to have it sitting on the gear uncovered for about $1500. I used Sitka spruce which I purchased rough cut in Boston and all aircraft approved plywood and AN hardware, with T-88 epoxy. I have cut no corners, other than purchasing some local spruce for such things as fuselage longerons and rib caps.

    Every time someone posts that they are looking for a solid, inexpensive 2 seater, I want to yell, "build a Fisher Horizon!!!"

    Have built one kit, an RX550, sold after a few years, bought a Piper Cherokee 160 and sold that. Now have an ultralight that I can just squeeze into. That is going to go also.
    I have been looking for a new build. The N3-pup by Preceptor has my interest as the cabin is wide enough for my shoulders. Speed is not a major want. STOL is what I am after. I was thinking of doing a collage of planes. Using the pup fuselage with the Zenith wings. Just want as much lift as possible as I am around mountains. The fiesler storch would be right up my alley, but can't find just plans for it.

    As I suspect you know, the Fieseler Storch has a few reduced size replicas out there (Slepcev, Pazmany, Roger Mann, etc…), but a somewhat easier STOL variation might be the Preceptor STOL King… the Storch itself is way large for my use, but the STOL King seems to retain a good amount of cabin space because it follows the Storch motif in expanding nicely above the mid-line, but in a package about the size of a CH750…

    Preceptor, like many small businesses lately, has had its delivery problems, but if you go onto the Yahoo STOL King forum and inquire, there is one of the senior members who has an arrangement to be a conduit for the plans… I ordered a set and they arrive in about 12-14 days (with a confirming email). The STOL King community is small, but pretty active is my impression, so you might inquire there if that seems a viable alternative for you.

    Once I get my current project finished, some time in the next decade:devious:, I’m kind of looking at the next – Buttercup, STOL King and the Zenith STOLs are all in the running (already have the plans – as well as Pegazair).

    Just joined this list and thought I would tell you a little about myself. Until a year ago I was building a Zenith CH750 STOL. Great plane and lots of fun to build. Had it almost done, but the CH750 Cruzer was introduced which was more perfect for me. Went ot the factory and flew both and made the switch. Sold the 750 and in January started the Cruzer. Both are all aluminum and both are fun to build. Haven't decided on an engine yet, so am hoping to get some guidance. Any input will be greatly appreciated.

    The A10 looks great - did you design and build it?

    Ha, ha. Don't you know they do that on purpose? When you get the Cruzer almost done, they will introduce something you like even more!

    I have two projects I'm working on. The first one is a 1956 Cessna 172, which I am converting into a tailwheel configuration. I took over management of an existing FAA STC approval, but there were no parts available so I had to design and develop completely new parts for the conversion. This will be an FAA approved commercial product for sale.

    I recently bought a damaged Avid Flyer model B, and am in the process of repairing it, installing a 4 stroke engine, and getting it back in the air.

    Wow, looking at your avatar, it seems that each of your floats by themself are larger than your fuselage.
