Hi Nick:

I can help you with any direct questions, but also I'll give you one bit of advice that may make a big difference in your building experience. On the 29th of this month it will be two years since I started plans-building my 601XL. The one, lucky decision I made was to find a way to attend the rudder workshop. I know it's a long trip from West Virginia, but you wil be glad you spent the money to do this.

Of the time I've invested and money I've spent - the biggest bang for the buck was the $300 workshop plus hotel and transportation to attend the workshop.

I made a big assumption here that you did not attend the workshop. If I'm wrong, please disregard. Email me at: [email protected] if I can be of assistance.
