Actually Joe ..you would be welcome to fly it! I am currently working on the basic wiring just to get the engine running. We want to do some temperature checks and will likely have to fine tune the cowl design. If all goes well the cowl will lend itself to any Rotax 912 install.

Good to see you are making progress. The 915iS should be a good match for that airframe.I am more than a little jealous.  Would love to get a ride in it someday.

Its been a fun 2 year project with lots of enhancements based on previous builds. Hope to do engine runs in the next couple of weeks. More to come....as for paint...have a design in mind. As for weight we need to add paint and fluids to the 845...we'll see. More to come.

Good work, do you have plans of painting? What do you anticipate for final weight?
