Hi Pat,
Looks good so far. I just requested a new price list from Don; so I can check out what wood kits you offer. I am hoping you might do an all wood MK Wild Beat. Will you still be doing custom cutting, too?
Good Luck!

Hi Pat,

could you take on another laser cutting project for wings and stabs of new plane design? If yes, I can put the principals involved in touch with you.

thanks

Thanks Pat,

I can't open .dwg files so I'm not certain that the ribs and crutch stations are in the attachments. The PDFs are there only as building aids after the ribs have been cut serving no real purpose for you.

I got another set of attachments from the designer which are supposed to be a complete file set
Of the wing and stab ribs and the spars that require laser cutting. I will send that to you shortly.

lets take this off the forum and communicate directly please

Hi Don,
Sounds like you are getting settled in Colorado. Have you updated your wood kit price and availability list to include the Wild Beat?
Thanks,
Will

I'm waiting until Pat ships me the parts he cuts for me and I add all the blocks, sticks, sheeting, canopy, fiberglass chin cowl, fiberglass pipe exit molded piece, and plan. Then I see what my cost is and post them on my monthly list.

Hi Pat,

Would it be possible in your view, with some changes to the fuselage design to convert the build to electric ? It is such a beautiful plane. There is a master builder in our club who would help me.
