How is the 650 project coming along?  I've only been up North once since we talked last Winter.  Hopefully, I'll get a chance to check out your project sometimes this Winter.

Thanks for the info and tool offer.  I'll be up in the county to visit my Dad in Van Buren sometimes over the next couple of weeks. Maybe we can get together and look at your project if convenient.

Cheers and Merry Christmas!

Thank you Roger, and good luck on your project.  I'm eight hours into the flight testing and enjoying every minute!

Hello Roger, I set the stab at zero degrees to start, but have not flown the plane yet. As you, I have read that other builders have had to change it after performing their flight tests. I intend to do the same .. see how it flies, understand the impact of my elevator trim tab, and the adjust as necessary. Regards //Dave

Roger, Glad to have you as a friend. Feel free to pick my brain, but it would be preferable to do it by e-mail. I don't visit this forum regularly and am still unsure how it works. I have had messages simply disappear, so I don't trust it for reliable communication. My e-mail address is
