Thank you for the incite, I really wasnt' surprised, after having met Chris years ago, It was kind of like the saying like father like son's , I have met and found the boys a tribute to him , honest , straight forward , and down to earth , there is a reason they have been in business for what now ? 30 years, a man told me yesterday that there are other airplane companys out there , but none he would rather do business with, you did a good job Chris on the planes and sons and I want to personally thank you sharing some of your knowledge and the chance to build your designs ...BOB
