Dwight, I'm building a belt drive off the flywheel end using a 36 mm wide gates polychain. I haven't built any of the aircraft yet, so I have a long haul ahead of me. I had started building an aircamper clone, but it was just to cramped. My wife is also much more interested in an enclosed side by side design. Your plane looks great. I love the wood accent on your panel and clean interior.
Thankyou for your kind comments. I have invested way to much time into my upholstery but in the end I will feel good that I had a go myself rather than pay un upholsterer $300-$400 to sew it up.
those checkers look very tedious to demask. Nice job though, very striking.
