    Measuring them side-by-side confirms this.

    So I received a check from a guy that has been texting me back and forth. The checks for 10,850.00 not the 7,500.00 I was asking.  (That’s my shocked face) I'm debating on how to better troll this clown? I already texted him and told him he can pick up the cash (extra) in person when he gets the plane. We'll see how it goes.

    Kitfox 3 Project #2!
    Since I have recently acquired a 4 kit the 3 kit is on the chopping block. I would keep it for a rainy day but with a 1/2 hangar space is tight. 
    Need to clarify, the Grove gear, the Khar 9mm and the lead shot bags in photo #2 do not go with it and are not for sale., the yellow gear mounted on the fuselage is sold with it. 
    First $7,500 takes it.

    It's gone. 
    Somebody upgraded their 3 to a 4 in one fell swoop.

    Got most of the control system removed along with the floorboards. The flap lever bolt seems to hit the frame tube, not sure how it got put in but it sure doesn't want to come out.

    Finally got the half hanger sorted out, lights installed etc, and actually did some work on (removed) the rudder pedals. Floor plywood is starting to crumble due to age and lack of finish. Going to remove all the controls, brace the fuselage sides, reshape/enlarge the tail feathers and build new rudder pedals with proper geometry and re-powdercoat everything, Going to make the tail similar to Av8r3400's and copy his fuselage and rudder pedal mods.
    I want to update the controls and wing to KF4 but every time I talk to KF about it I seem to get the hard sell "buy the whole 4 wing quick-build" instead of these are the parts you need to swap out and this is the cost.  Same thing with the control system. They act like they don't want to sell the parts. I may have to flatten the wing and build a 4 control system the hard way?

    TJay, I'm about to widen my 3 and would like to copy what you have done rather than simply order the Murle kit. Could you post some additional pictures of it? Top weld, middle, front back and what tube size(s)? Pretty please?

    I used this years ago to take a really nasty scratch out of a Europa windscreen. (spinner departed in flight, don't ask) works well but follow the tutorial.

    I would not run that prop on any engine. But I wouldn't let an Ivoprop near any engine I own anyway.
