Thanks Frank, I would recommend this kit. The build is more work than a laser cut kit, but I knew that going in.
The wood is a bit heavy in this particular kit, but there is always a variation of densities with balsa. My friend has an Astro Hog that has wood that is too light. Between us, we average out to perfect weight.
Instructions are easy and not many problems, other than the modifications I want to make to the plane.
My personal preference would be a slightly smaller plane. I keep hitting things in the workshop when I move the wing. My preference would be around a 50, plus or minus, inch wing.
The wing is done except for the cap strips, I'll wait on them until I have the fuselage done, one less thing to damage while moving parts.
I'll have a slight delay while I repair my Pulse. I flew it through a tree Sunday, broke the aft end of the fuselage off and tore the gear mount out.
The plane fared better than the tree, we cut the tree down to put it out of our misery.
