Started building November 1, 1982…..first flight April 16, 2000. Plans built with the LS1 canard and Revmaster engine. Over 1200 hours flown. No idea of the hours spent building, but worth every minute.

Subject: Re: [Q-List] Build times
Yours is probably more relevant, since almost no one from here on out will be buying a virgin kit. They are almost all partially built. Would be good to have you do a zoom sometime to tell everyone how you found and fixed the mistakes.

Do we that bought a project, partially built, get to play?
TriQ on the gear when purchased. New nose gear, built new main wing replaced same, fixed many mistakes, MANY mistakes.
