HardKnox Posted February 25, 2008 Share Posted February 25, 2008 I just ordered my plans today... Here we go! This will be my second airplane to build. My first was a Van's RV-9A - the best flying airplane I've ever flown. My family grew with addition of my daughter, now 5, so I so I aquired a C-182 just over a year ago. I HATE not being able to work on it, and I HATE the cost of parts, maintenance, etc. So I'm doing it again... This time it will be a different experience, having both a daughter and an airplane to fly. I don't expect I'll complete it quite so quickly. Composite should be a totally different experience as well, while I can stay with the tried and true Lyc 160 or 180 with which I'm very familar. I'm hangared currently at CPT (Cleburne Muni) just south of Fort Worth, TX. I hope composite construction and Texas heat will work together. Please let me know NOW if I'm making a mistake. My shop is not insulated or climate controlled. I'll be attending the Composite Construction SportAir workshop in Dallas this weekend. Will I see any of you there? I hope to get some experience with some different expoxies because I'm SOOO confused as to what to use. I'm looking forward to adding some bells and whistles that I didn't on my previous build. I'll have dual displays for sure so the copilot can fly. I'm also going to focus a lot on cockpit organization (cubbies). These are invaluable, IMHO. Please EMAIL ME PICTURES AND WEBSITES. I'm a huge reader of other builder's sites...so if you have one, send away. I look forward to many discussions with y'all.
