Thanks

I just recently finished an Ultra Hots from the MAN plans. If you are going to build from the MAN plans, be warned that they are not very good.
Templates are not accurate. It is impossible to cut out a "kit" and build the plane. It takes a lot of cut and fit to make it work. I am confident that
whoever drew the plans never built a plane using them. I don't know if the plans from Santich are better. However, if you persevere you will be
rewarded with a plane that is really fun to fly. As to the construction article, if you have built any planes from plans, or even kits, you really don't
need the construction article. It is a simple and straight forward build. Even with the poor plans I ejoyed building my Ultra Hots.

I agree.

Always finding someone who wants to shortcut the process, and then the slots get bigger. Most folks now go to one plan fits all. They take the advise of those who preceeded them, and use it instead of looking for lowest cost.

I got the Aqua star plans here someplace, but again found one sheet to say this and contradicted on another one.
