Promise me you will finish one of your airplane projects before before starting another one! Of course I start a dozen hobby projects for every one I finish, but do what I say not what I do.

BTW, I hope you're taking medical advice from doctors rather than judges. And I hope your daughter has recovered fully.
In the five years I've been here, I have never seen a single person here finish an airplane, and post a video flying it for the first time.
Hope you are doing well. How are things going in China now? I will be checking in on Glassair and Top Cub when I return to WA state. Things appear to be grinding to a halt. Both have China investors.
Hi, my name is Grant and just read your Oshkosh post. Is this Dan? The reason I ask is the photo of Dan's plane at ATC KRNT. I assume the answer is no and believe we may have spoken once about 8 mounts ago when you were flying the plane.

Post is to long. More to follow.
I am writing because I though we may get together this summer to make up for the KOSH nogo. I am retired but still fairly active in aviation. I have a lot of things to find homes for as I downsize. If your son is interested in aviation I would like to pass along a few objects and stories for his education.
Give me a call sometime. I am in AZ at present but will be back to RNT soon as the Covid19 backs off.

425 495 7946 Pass the number to your son if he has the interest to call. Text too.
You were correct in your assumption re: Mitchell Wing with 24 hp being viable. I know, I built two of them... started with a 12.5 hp McColloch engine... then an 18 hp Zenoah engine; Then a Honda Oddessy; then a 25 hp KFM. All set up in pusher configuration. All stable except Honda.. too heavy.
Had many hours of great flying fun with each one. KFM best by far of all engines flown with.
