    Well since I had such amazing response from my Wichawk ad in the for sale section. I am obviously keeping it. I have to figure a way to fly it light sport. Ha you say.

    My plan? Make a parasol out of it using some C-120 wings I have laying around. I plan on using a C-85 or O-200. Getting it on a diet will be the biggest challenge. The fittings for the cabanes and lower wing attach should be good for the struts and center wing attach pylon. I will modify the root section of the wings for the sweep.

    I have put a request to the FAA (fun police) to see if I can license it that way, we will see. :gig: Any thoughts about the mod?

    In case anyones interested we disassembled the frame and removed the tail treated and primed every thing and will start tomorrow reassembling it. The gear legs are very light for as beefy as they look.
