    Posting here is fine, I just suggested those other sites because that's where most of the ppg pilots hang out, lots of expertise there.

    Ok, the engine, prop, redrive, and bearing puller is in the mail. I'll post some pics when I get them. Michael

    I'm in eastern NC. I'm building a Quad - are there plans or kits for a quad grazhopper? I'm building a quad because I think they are safer. I saw a trike crash and flip over on its side during landing, and I'd like to have the extra ground stability of a quad. I also want all the advantages of a 4-stroke engine
