Default RE: New kit ideas?

Most of the Bridi designs are alive and well at Blue Jay. Even the 80 inch Kaos and Big Bee. Modern cutting??????? The cutting has never bothered me one way or another. It was the death of all the old kits we used to have and they were turned into ARFs that bothered me. As a plans builder I don't worry about it any longer. Cutting a kit myself only takes about two hours so it's part of the building process.If people want a big something that is in kit form just buy the small one and have the plans blown up at Kinko's to the size you want.
With all the plans on the market there is no reason to lament the loss of kits. Just using MAN, AMA and RCM plans service there are more planes you can build then were ever offered in kit form.
