This week marked the 4th anniversary of that first snip into the metal of the rudder kit. I now have 340 hours into the project, only managed 53 last year thanks to 10 weeks of airport resurfacing that robbed me of hangar access during the best months of the year. But what I lacked in hours I made up for in dollars, lol - the purchase of the Rotax 912ULS added quite a bit to the rolling total. I think it will be worth it though.
It really is starting to look like I am near the finish (though much like Vegas, the next milestone is always further away than it looks), and have promised myself we shall be done before Dec 2015 when I turn 50. Would be great to be done before the start of the summer heat next year but I think that will be pushing it.
A couple of weekends ago I braved the heat to unload the FWF kit so I could take an inventory (and pique my curiosity as to what was inside) so this is pretty much where the project stands right now.
As always, I appreciate the help and insight from you all on this site, I doubt I would have a rudder without your help, let alone something look like it might possibly actually fly some day.
