This is Joe Begany from Elyria, OH.  We taked early last summer and you were struggling with your engine.  You mentioned an air show at the Lost nation Airport just about the time we talked.  Did you ever get your engine running properly?  Have you flown off your hours?  I spent all summer talking to everyone I could get my hands on and finally broke down and purchased a set of plans for the 750 just last week.  I am currently looking for materials suppliers in the area.  Just started making calls today.  I would still love to get together and talk building sometime.  Have you been out to the new sports complex out your way.  They are flying RC aircraft a couple of evenings each month.  I plan to stop out and check it out.  Might be a great place to get together over the winter.  Let me know.
