    Default STI Farm Fox Build Log

    Hello all, welcome to Farm Fox build log. My wife came up with the name since we see most name their planes.
    I have enjoyed following the build logs on Teamkitfox.
    This is our first build and we will have many questions and we hope to be corrected when you see mistakes we make.
    Thanks for any and all help along the way.
    We have not picked out engine, prop, or electronics yet. We will cover with Oratex is about the only solid decision we have made.
    So far the truck has left a lot of parts that are suppose to be a plane someday hopefully and inventory has begun. Harlan and Susan Payne

    Awesome! Did they leave you a Cobra as well? I am Considering building one of those. Have a great time! One piece at a time and before you know it those parts will be an airplane.

    Harlan, Thanks for posting and keeping us up to date. That same truck dropped off my cobra build in 2015. I will be only a couple of months behind you so the info is great. Jim

    A cobra would have been nice. He had a couple rans left to deliver after he left me.

    You will probably pass me on your build, we are coming into our busy season but will try to do a little when we can but winter will be here before you know it.
    A couple of cobra pics would be ok too..

    I got the rotisseries completed today and got the wings mobile.

    Here is a couple. My car is parked in my future kitfox build garage and I have to make some plans to change up the build order. Canít put the wing on inside, so I will have to do it outside when the weather is warm. Envious of your space. Jim
