    I have a Mini-max that I built from plans back in 1994. I started with a Kawasaki 440 but later changed to Hirth 2704. Nice flying airplane.

    Hi Dick - great looking airplane! How about doing a brief (200 word) write-up for the magazine? If you're willing, send it, along with a photo, to editorial@eaa.org. Hope to hear from you!

    It's been years, but my friend and co pilot Maj. Warner Giles built a Starlite, the predecessor to the Pulsar. It is tiny ,but unlike many of the low end planes it is not slow and sort of a powered hang glider or Cub variation. It is a sleek low wing monoplane, and fast for it s sizw. We opened the box and there are the two halves of he fuselage, from firewall to tail and they are split down the middle. We spread some of the glue, sophisticated and hi teck epoxy on the flange , fit them together held by bunges or something, and let it set an hour. Im thinking one day Im going to be test flying this thing and will it really hold. Then we try to wipe or sand off the excess epoxy at the joint and its like steel, no more worries about that. It fit in the back shed at his mobile home and he did most of the work as I had a ski injury then. The top skin of the wing was balsa wood, impossible light but strong enough.
    2 Hang up, the 2 stroke Rotax 337 engine sounded awful but ran just fine, Next finding enough room for a parachute when I test flew it. It flew just fine, would go about 140 mph. Flew good, ground handling was not so good. It looked sleek and cool.
