I know, years ago when ducted fans were popular and nothing else was around, there were plenty of plans and build up kits. Ok, those times are gone. We have turbines now and composite Air frames with high tech computerized control systems. Despite all this, I still believe there are individuals who take pride of their own build. Don't get me guys wrong, I don't mind nowadays trend at all. It's a clean, quick build and as mentioned above, it saves a lot of time. Me personally, I like to have a bit of both worlds. Having something I can fly any day but in my workshop there's almost always some scratch build project going on. Jets were always on my list but I'm new to it. Never know, I might end up buying arf but I like the challenge. And I also know, I don't have to spend ridiculous amount of money for my first jet.
I can build the airframe cheap and all I would need, is to invest in good reliable gear. I hope it makes sense for some.
