Sample building log

Hi all, I have decided to make up a computer log/diary for my computer and so have attached a copy of it here. It is a microsoft Excel spreadsheet which performs auto sum of all pages etc. Simple to use and I have filled in a few sections so you can have an idea of how it all goes together.I have a note at the top of each section to add in a hyperlink to the related folder with all the photos. I did this to make the whole folder more organised and easier to track. …See More

Hi Peter,
Plane has arrived - it's effectively a quick build kit based on the amount of work/re-work to be done. - still very cool.
I fly back into Australia for a week tomorrow, will give you a call to work out a time to catch up.

Hi Peter,

I had great plans of getting there after kayaking today, however instead of being out of the water by 1pm we were still getting out in the dark and cold at 1800.

Have a great holiday, will catch up when you're back

I'll give you a bell and drop around on Saturday.  Thanks.

Hi Peter,

I'm back in Aus for 2 weeks.  Looks like your having a wonderful time with it.  Mine arrives at the port on the 7th of July at the port of Brisbane.  Unfortunately that's the day I fly out form China, don't get back til the end of the month.  After that I will be in Aus for a bit, we'll have to catch up then.


Cheers.

Hi Peter, Just got back to Au - been in India and Brunei for work.  I organized the freight online with a mob called FCL, and a local FBO to pack the plane in the container for me.  Should ship on Tuesday, and be here end June.  Plane has a ground adjustable prop, but I'm looking for an in-flight system for it.

Hi Peter,

Mine is coming for San Deigo, it's about 70%-80%, Powered by a Crossflow Subaru 250HP engine and Warp Drive Ground Adjustable prop.  I was about to place my order for the full kit when I came across this one.  I am actually talking to the shipping co. tomorrow to organize it.  Will probably be about 6 weeks, but that's OK as I will be overseas for most of it working.

Cheers,

Brett

Hi Peter,

Just purchased a partially completed '801, eagerly awaiting it also.  Based at Nth Maclean, just south of Brisbane.

Cheers,

Brett
