An airplane sounds badass. Imagine flying up to your favorite fishing spot.

That, and a big enough back yard for your own landing strip. :-k

If you Google, Lenard Milholland's Legal Eagle, you can see what my engine looks like. Can't wait to get this project back into my hands. \:D/

Get lessons JJ. Gyro's are different animals. Especially at higher altitudes.

Here is a link to the plane I'm picking up.

Not generally Woody. But this plane is pretty roomy. Smile Bigger problem right now is I'm kind of heavy, about 30lbs. over planes' gross pilot weight of 240lbs. Need to lose some weight. :-k

Got one wing half and bunches of hardware home tonight. Tomorrow early, I'll get the other wing half and fuselage home. \:D/ \:D/

Broke my propeller taking it off the trailer. ](*,) ](*,) Lots and lots of rework to do. My standards and workmanship was below par then. :-k

Come on down JJ. the Chirco show is coming up in Oct. Third weekend if I remember correctly. Great camp out at the Red Barn round up right by Chirco's. Come down Thursday leave on Sunday after show.

No starter I assume. Bummer on the propeller.
