    What a surprise reading this thread, and seeing an old picture of my plane! I purchased N193TF a little over two years ago from a gentleman who purchased it from Skystar in 1997. I knew from the history that the plane was a factory demo plane. Here is a picture of it when I bought it.

    That's fantastic.

    I recon it was around October 1996 when I went for that demo ride at Skystar.
    What motor is in it, a 582UL ? Probably been replaced by now.

    This is making me remember other visuals of that visit to Skystar.

    Across from the main Kitfox buildings was another hangar where they showed me the Biplane Kitfox. Photo below.
    I also was introduced to Dan Denney, he had the Thunder Mustang in that hangar. So cool!


    Strange! I can't upload photos. Team Kitfox states upload has failed.

    Eric, I just tried uploading an image and it failed also. I have my I.T. expert looking into it.

    Photos are now available.
    The biplane and the results of my couple of years of building.
    I didn't take a photo of the Mustang.

    It has a Rotax 618 in it. I plan to replace it with a 912 at some point, but it does fly great as it is.
