I bought this plane from a friend out in Columbus Ohio in 2016 summertime. I was never sure as to whose plans they were. I wanted to determine that so I could better understand its construction and layout. Meanwhile I bought most everything I needed to restore the plane and improve upon it. This was to be my long term project plane. I spent those two years studying and researching what to do with this plane. I finally had come up with my plan for January 2019. I began work that new years day with orbital sanding the imperfections out of the surfaces. I removed all the attached panels, cowls, firewalls engines, fuel tanks..the works. I could then see what I was working with. Being well built and remarkably intuitive design, I began to look for key markes of the design to determine the plan maker. Noted that the wings disconnected at the posterior flap location. The canopy was set with 4 mini screws. the battery compartment located just behind the cockpit, all key elements to determining the Don Palmer plans!! I began to develop a research packet on the plane, panel lines, fuel tank location, bolt patterns, etc. I have a great love for this plane as it represents all the skills I have developed in this hobby over the last 6 years. I expect at least a year or two before she flies, but it can always be sooner. stay tuned!
