Thanks from you all,
I figured some real builders would respond with some real world experience here, not what they heard someone else say..
Makes me glad to see that there are still you guys out there how actually have the requeist skills to build your own planes like I do. Not many in my area that I know of..
Some of the folks I know thought that using pine was a real bad chioce, but that was coming from the ARF crowd most of which have trouble even assembeling thier own ARF's
I enjoy building as much as flying myself.. I think there are only a couple of guys in my club that build at all..
I have used pine for serveral builds but was looking at the poplar because its mostly clear and fast to pick at the lumber stores.. The 1/4 Sq's I ripped up on my band saw look great to me, seem to be very strong..
Well thanks again,
Happy landings too ya from Texas,,[:@]
