Bought this project a couple months ago for $500, which I thought was pretty good. Everything behind the firewall is in great shape.
Has/had a run out Corvair, Im slowly working on getting the wing shifted back to its original position (was moved rearward by previous owner for W&B issues) then it will be time to look at getting an engine and mount built. Should be a fun project and a fun flyer.
I dont love the paint but its probably going to stay like that until it gets recovered a few years down the road.
Hopefully a Cont 65 or 85. My dad has a couple extra props that would work.joea wrote:Looks like fun but better wear something warm with that open cockpit!
What kind of engine are you going to run on it?
Very nice. Can't beat that price. Don't expect it to fly like an Aeronca though (which I'm sure you don't). Buddy of mine built a Piet. That's an old airfoil and there's no dihedral, so she kind of wallows through the sky. But for low and slow sightseeing, it's hard to beat.
