sweet! thats a great price but i think i'd rather have one of the more 'polished' kit planes. a good friend of my dads is building one though i don't remember what it is.

I like the polished kit. Pricey though. I mean, for $98k you can get a light sport, with no real restrictions on where I fly it, and I could log the hours.

Though, this only works because I'm certificated.
