Hi Alan
we estimate by 0ctober, work commitments allowing the time frame isnt abig issue really 2 bodies working should keep a consistant work schedule but we are sure there will be some down time ,we also have to both get our licences as well !we will keep a pretty detailed work and progress log as well as plenty of pics and maybe a video as well

thanks for the encouragement :cheers:
Cheers Gareth

Hi Gareth
Are you based in Brisbane? It would be good if I could come have a look once you start building, if thats alright with you of cause.:smile: I'm looking into starting one of the kits myself in the next for months, they sure are a awesome bit of gear. Good luck with the build

Sounds good Gareth! I'll be putting in a 2200 Jab ... bit cheaper to buy, maintain and operate. I can see that the extra power could come in handy though. John.

Hi John
we also have to consider that craig and i are 220 kilo,s up front plus baggage and camping stuff the extra oomph will com in handy on climb out and cruise
