There was a pretty extensive thread in the Kit building forum. I tried to search it, but I couldn't get it to work. You might want to try searching there.

I've built two of them, two of the finest flying 40 sized bipes made. You do have to pay attention to the wing alignment. I found mine flew best with the lower wing at zero degrees and upper wing at -1.5 degrees. In fact, you could roll inverted and fly straight and level hands off with no trim changes. My only other plane that will do that is the smaller LazyAce bipe. An absolute dream to fly but not real easy to build, especially if you are a new kit builder. The wood selection was very good in both my kits.
