I'll bet it would do pretty good with a Jabiru engine on the front. Way lighter than the VW, and a bit more power as well. PS looking at this plane a bit more, and it has folding wings and looks to be in good shape. I would go have a look at it if it was close to me and I was in the market. Way cheaper and quicker than building one

Looking at the registration on the FAA site, and the registration is expired. It wasn't cancelled by the owner looks like to me. It may be possible to get it reinstated. If the engine was any good, it would be worth that much by itself easy. The 912 Rotax is not real bad for rusting up internally when it's sat a long time. Cam and lifters are down low, nicosil cylinders, If it was real close to me, I would go have a look at it. Even though I've been saying for the last year, "no more projects" JImChuk
Allen, if you private message me your phone number, I can message the guy and ask him to call you. As far as facebook goes, I really wish it hadn't taken over or maybe say overtaken the forums. I think of it more of a gossip thing, and less of the real plane building and information. On these forums, you can do a search and find stuff that was posted 10 yrs ago, and it very well may be relevant to what you were trying to find out. On fb its hard to find something that is a week old. Also, lots of key board commandos. Maybe some screwed up kid in his mom's basement trying to sound like he knows something. And often enough maybe someone older than a kid with the same desire to sound important. It especially peeves me when someone posts an add, and the first question some one will ask is "is the price negotiable?" not how many hours, what engine, ect, ect.....

Hi Kent, I got those control rod lengths just now, I forgot till I saw your comment again, and ran out to the garage. Elevator is the short one, flaps are the long one. The dumb end of the tape in the first picture shows where I measured from. JImChuk
Lots of stuff hanging in the rafters and such all over the country. Probably half of the kits never get finished. Kitfox 4 that I'm working on now is from 1996. Still not done. Many others just like it. Just a matter of finding them, or at least one. There was one in Michigan last week. 1050 Kitfox 4. Covered and with poly brush on it. Been sitting for a bunch of years since. Was 8000 or 9000
