Oshkosh? Status?

Postby dolbydigital » Sat Jul 23, 2005 9:14 am

What's going on with the Cruiser program? It's been very quite on this forum and the web site has not had an update in months.

I would like to make a suggestion if the project is still alive. Check out the cartercopters.com web site. They have a weekly update section that always has some kind of info about the status of the project even if it's to tell the public that they did not get much done that week and maybe they will have more info the following week. When a web site on a new project does not get updated for a long period of time some either stop visiting or assume the project is dead or both.

I hope the project is coming along and you guys are just too busy getting ready for that first flight to bother with the web site. The concept is really great.

Best of Luck,

Tim

The Personal Cruiser has exceeded the efficiency goal of 40 MPG's and progress continues in refining the exhaust system and extending the range with larger fuel capacity.  

The top speed continues to improve and exceeding 160 mph is not far off.

Kits are in production now and the latest information is available at www.pro-composites.com.  

Happy Building, :D

How many kits are out?

Hi Scott

How many builders do you have at present? I checked the video on your web site and watched the fellow assemble the tub. Very neat. How is that aircraft progressing? Do you have any completions by customers yet?

Builder Progress

Postby Scott » Mon Mar 03, 2008 7:20 pm

Both David Voit, 004 and Bruce Strugill 007 continue to make progress.  As with any project like this life gets in the way.  We're still waiting for our other kit purchasers to get out of the gate and begin.

Below is what Bruce sent last week on his progress.
