    I'd hate to know what the shipping was on that. What is the delivery airplane?

    Yup.... Thing is....they ainít legal... and life got in the way...over the past 2-1/2 years....Iíve busted both hands, then busted my right foot...thought it was a sprain...three months of barley able to walk got an CT scan...it showed the fracture and X-ray did not. It still painful after an hour on my feet. Then thought I had a heart attack when I was muscling a generator into position...never hold your breath and push with all your might...thatíll squeeze off blood flow to the heart. Every wonder why an elder died sitting on the toilet?

    Two echocardiogramís and a stress test...Cardiologist says Iím in great shape for my age..no issues other than blood pressure...Iíve always been between 130-140 over 80-90. They say 130 is to high now ah days. So at nearly 60...Iím now taking a pill every day.

    I havenít taken the Boeing engineer up on his offer to do the engineering documentation to make the FAA happy.... and Eddie Trimmer has told me repeatedly to buy a set of legal wings....when he get the stc...Iíll have a set of wings ready to go.

    Havenít received the bill yet. Was right at 400 pounds when I dropped off the crate. Then it was weather tested.....gained 80 pounds of water weight..the quarter inch plywood...really cheap chit...and didnít weigh much..until it was soaked... hope they charge me by the pound...not by the cube.
