Hello, Scott

Thanks for your comments.

I originally was going to use Python, but could not find a graphics library that was easy to learn and had all the features I wanted.

(Tkinter does not support anti-aliasing.)

Not to mention installation: some of these  open-software products are a bear to install, oodles of pre- and co-requisites.

You are right about ports, it'll be a consideration when I reach for the wallet. But the engine monitor will use multiplexers such as this:

which will reduce the I/O requirements.

The RPI is supported by openFrameworks, and the PCduino only recently saw a  couple of successful installs (the pre and co-requisites were the major issues - not surprisingly).

The advantage of the PCduino is the abundance of ports, speed and memory. We'll see...

Hey Scott,


Thanks for the comment on my quick build kit.  I need to give you a call and get together, I've said that before but I'm sure you know how life interrupts plans.

Hi Scott,


No problem. If I can help, I'll be glad.

Thanks to you as well for the welcome.  To clarify (as I did to Bill) I just order my planes yesterday so it will be a while before I actually start.  I will also be spending some time figuring out what this site is all about.  Thanks again, will keep you (all) posted.

Hi Scott. I am not sure of pesticides being used but I did find rodent droppings in my storage facility. Could rodent urine cause this? I know airplanes can get rodents nesting in them but you would think urine causing corrosion would have been questioned before.

HI Scott, I have only been working on the 750 for about 3 or 4 weeks so far but I have been impressed with how easy it can be to scratch build an airplane part. I really like the option on the 750 to use the 0-200 engine. and the thicker skins. I realize that this project will take several years but I really enjoy the building process itself. Also, my trip to see Mr. Carpenter's 750 impressed me and I made my mind up then to go with the 750.

Hi Scott,
My partner Gene and I would be very pleased to show you our 701 which right now at the proverbial 90% complete with 90% to go stage. Our airplane is at a hangar at the Blue Ridge Skyport (57GA) near Blue Ridge, Georgia.

As for instruction, we have another home builder and CFI, Lex Fisher, at our airport who has a recently completed Challenger II that he is interested in instructing in. I'm not sure how far a drive that is for you but that might work. As you get close to flying your aircraft I'd be happy to take you up in ours to show you how it handles (assuming ours is finished first). My direct email is and my cel number is (706) 889-4903.

I'm out of town until June 25th but we can set something up after that if you'd like to visit.

I look forward to meeting you.

Warm regards,
Mike Jones
