Feels like we've been working on it forever and then I look at what we've done (v-stab, h-stab, elevators, rudder, trim-tab) and it doesn't seem like 2 months of work.

I'm building a QB kit, wrapping up the tail-cone now, should be done with the emp in under 2 weeks if we don't have any setbacks.

My QB fuse/wings, and engine should be here in August so I'm a little ahead of schedule on the panel but better than being behind (thanks, SteinAir!)

We're spending somewhere between 25-30 hours per week, two of us. She dimples while I drill or she primes while I rivet, etc. Then when it comes to the hard stuff 4 hands and 2 sets of eyes helps. My helper/girlfriend absolutely loves it and does solid work.

You are an inspiration, sir. I don't know how you found a helper/girlfriend who loves working on an airplane and does a good job, but I hope you know how special it is.

Just wanted to let you know we're out here watching your posts and trying to learn from them. The QB option is one I haven't considered but your experience may push me that direction. You seem like a man of action -- just the right temperament to tackle a project like this. Good luck and thanks for the posts.

I have no idea how she puts up with me, but Phoenix rocks and is way smarter than me. Thanks for the compliments! Hopefully I'll get to meet some of you soon.

Default Amazing progress

i am to the point of trying to figure out all the wires to my Dynon Classic 10 inch panel, Radio, intercom, and peripherals and never thought to do it as you have.

I am in the process of painting the panel and installing the EFIS then hooking up things, it is so INTIMIDATING!

Great work, nice your partner is helping so much bettter when the other half is part of things.

Dave
