In this episode: Chris is back, and he brings a guest. In this show, Jon "scrtsqrl" Baron joins Chris and Bobby and talks about crossing over from RC to full scale aviation. Beware, this could be an expensive episode. But tune in anyway!

Great topic. I on the other hand crossed over from Full Scale to RC. I am checked out in 17 types, and have 3000+ hours. I used to be the right hand man for the IA who also happened to own main FBO and flight school on a busy airport. I usd to fly everything I could get my hands on. I have time in everything from a J-3 to a P-51.

Thanks for having me. Sorry for all the coughing...

Chris: I did not know you got that far into building a Sonex. Ultralights should be a cakewalk for you (Liz-permitting).

Here are a couple more links and videos:

The Aerolite 103. http://www.fly103.com and for our European friends: http://www.aerolite120.com
The Zigolo. http://www.aeromarine-lsa.com
The Belite Pro Cub. http://www.beliteaircraft.com.
The E-gull. http://www.thundergull.com

A an example of used Aerolite 103. $7500, RTF!


This one is for Bobby:


Let me know if you have any questions...

Thanks again for having me over.

Chris: Again, I'm sorry for your loss. I'm sure things will work out...You'll take care of your dad...no worries.

JBB

Thanks for joining us, Jon! No worries about the coughing, having everything in separate tracks makes editing out the coughs pretty easy. I also noted times for most of them so I just zoomed around muting your track. ;)

Yep, I got the Sonex to the "90% done 90% to go" stage when someone who'd been following my build log online called up and asked if I might want to sell it. He'd already built one plane (very similar to that 2 seater you flew) and knew what was involved. He was looking for something faster and almost finished... so I sold it.

Dad will be OK, I'm actually up at his place again this weekend helping him make knives. I didn't bring any toys to play with this time, I figured I'd get more done without them. :roll:

Always liked the midget mustang... Very cool. Too small for me though, would need a whole bucket of Crisco and a head start to get in one though!

I did not know you were that far along into building your own plane...

Making and flying one of these ULs should be child's play for you.

You said that you had some time on a Zenith. How did you like it? It looks like it won't be too much of a drill to build. It looks like an good "second" plane.

Thanks again for having me.

:)

I've got about 10 hours in my logbook on the Zenith CH-701 STOL:

The one I'd like to build is the newer (faster and larger) CH-750 Cruzer:

http://zenithair.com/stolch750/index-cruzer.html

They aren't beautiful, but they are a simple build and fly really well.
