I heard there was somebody around building but my search failed. Received my 750 kit in mid  Feb. Rudder went quickly, and now about 90% done with horz stab. I called Hupe about hanger space and he said they didn't have any. Have you contacted a CFI yet?

I live about 5mi west of Wamego. I hope when I get experienced I will be able to land in my pasture. We should get together sometime. 785-617-0808.
