    Hello Chuck... Thanks for your nice words. It was long to modify the tail. Bcos i made the speedster kit myself, USA its looong way for the post...
    I think you must take 2 month min. to modify your tail, but the winter will be perfect for a big work lie this. And after will have a very different Kitfox ... Thats right Chuck, here we have montain, montain and again montain... Its a big place to play... But sometime dangerous when its windy... Have a good day Regards Vincent

    Good job, waiting the end of my overhaul in a few days, 4 months of job quite a complete rebuilt !
    We are not far together, i'm in Dijon. Mine is a KF2 and i increase too the tail in high. I hope it will improve rudder authority.
    But one question, i was thinking that ultralight are forbidden in Switzerland ?

    Hi GDN... Thanks, you are right for ultralight in Swiss... But my Kitfox is to heavy (MTOW 500Kg) to be in ultralight class then its a aircraft funny but its true. And today we have a new class in Swiss: "Ecolight" then some (few) ultralight can come in the Ecolight class. Dont you undestand? Me too !!! Its a Swiss law ... I hope to see your Kitfox one day with new tail, i believe you will won in efficacity... !!!

    Vincent, Thanks for reviving the KOTM program. We need more posts like this!
