Cabin Eagle builders' logs?
« on: September 04, 2017, 05:49:08 PM »
It's been over a year since Leonard's release of the Cabin Eagle plans.  I got mine, but I am not in a position to build right now.  Does anyone know of any Cabin Eagle builds being documented (in the group, Facebook, blogs, etc.) that I could follow?  If I can't build, I'd at least like to follow along with someone else build to learn and enjoy.  Thanks!  Cheers, Matthew

Mathew,
I'm making progress on my Cabin Eagle build. The wings, fuselage, and tail feathers are pretty much complete. Working on wiring, then hanging the engine and covering.
There are still a thousand and one little things to be done. I was hoping to fly this year but I'm a bit behind schedule. Hopefully the 1st half of next year.
You can see my progress at http://www.mykitlog.com/pshadwick . I'm not great at keeping it up to date and I still need to add pictures.

My CE is progressing VERY slowly. I do not have a build log and I am not very good at taking or posting pictures. I have one wing nearly done, but the aileron is not built yet. I am starting to install the plywood leading edge. I have waited on building the aileron because I am considering making a change to the wing fold system which may necessitate a change to the control system. So far, what I have built will work on either the DE or the CE, so not much info you may be looking for.
