Things are coming along nice I see!I was wondering, your current total is about 5-600 hours iirc, but what about expected total time? I understand this is a very rough estimate but in what span are you expecting it will take to build the aircraft? All in all?
Well, really feels like I am sticking out my chin here:My original estimate was that I would spend between 1500 and 2000 hours and probably closer to the latter number. Now I am starting to believe that it would be possible to build this ac in under 1200 hours if you are experienced and that I as a first time builder can be ready for first flight in under 1500 hours. This is provided that I stay with an engine that is compatible with the firewall forward kit and with a non-complex panel.
Ah. "Only" 2000?! Cool. So basically 1/3 - 1/4 done or so? Reason I ask is, not only am I curious and do follow your progress - but I recently saw an estimate of 10 000 hours of a guy building a **model** a/c. You've probably seen it on facebook etc. Thought to myself: that is a sh*tload of time, how much for a **real* a/c... :)
