first thought Saito FG 100. Yeah right that thing cost more then my daughterís car. Next I thought about a GP123. Hmm but would have to sell 10 Saitoís to get that. Last thought is my other 3W 120 with tuned pipes. Snicker snicker. So right now still pondering

if I could make a decision I could have ready to fly by the end of the weekend

That's about when the blue and white one was built by my cousin, it's a rubber band held wing, I build all mine with bolt on wings.

most of it was firewall. The fuse I repaired like we had talked.
The wing still needs to be fixed but I figure a glop of epoxy and will be all good.

Well if the early airplanes are any example if you have control surfaces and the wings covered you're good!

Better for us to be twisted than the connecting rod in a Saito, right?
