    I would buy one and play with it if teal would make a gearbox for them. But Im not crazy about the rotax gearbox.

    Ha I tried that ended up with a distorted mess. I just used two pieces of lexan one for the top and one for the bottom.

    Can you tighten that bug nut a little bit. Or maybe grease it a bit more.

    Im excited too and yes I bought directly from them Nice people to work with did everything I wanted got blue tips painted on and leading edge laid in the carbon fiber the prop is extremely nice looking. I got a 2 blade. took about 2 mounts to get but that is not a problem. I didn't care much for the western union money transfer. That cost me 35 dollars. But it did go smoothly. And I would buy another from them.

    I bought those years ago and was really impressed with them yes you need to fill in the blanks but thats not so bad. I have pulled plans from old popular mechanic magazine that were alot worse.

    I got a 68 inch Luga sitting on the bench shaped just like that.  After Christmas I will be leaving Wisconsin and moving back home then we will see how they do on our early birds.

    Well to me I guess there is only one way to fix this problem right.
    And your right My mind has been made up about that from day one.
    If you wanna go out to your plane and chop your spar in half at the  29 inch mark tonight  then splice it back together and fly it all winter  I will listen to your suggestions but for now this will be my last post about this. 
    Sure would love to see you start another thread on this plane you designed and built?

    What a bunch of Gobbledy Gook. I cant tell you what to do but I can give an example to think about. Take a 5 inch thick slab of concrete you put a saw cut 1/2 inch deep in it that's 10 percent of its original thickness. The first time that slab moves it cracks in that cut every time. Now you need to think about how much that spar bounces up and down right in that thin spot. Just something to think about the next time you go fly.

    You could just make a block and pound them out. Its been done for years for just one airplane. Just a thought.
