    can be a cheap skate like me and ‘Roll your Own’ 8)

    Haha...I might have to buy a warmer hat for winter flying with an open cockpit up here in far northern...

    Hey guys, input from all perspectives is greatly appreciated. Even though I am not in NEED of a super STOL setup, it is good to hear from someone who uses their plane for that mission. Just as...

    Like you, I don't mind some tinkering but building an entire plane would make my head explode. Kudos to those who are up for that kind of challenge, but I'm definitely not cut out for that.

    Haven't looked into it. I'm not sure I am up for a build. I don't have the space to do it and I know my own limitations. Looks like a nice option for someone wanting to take on a build though.

    Thanks for the heads up! If the owner's initials are B.A. another member sent me his info and I spoke with him. I'm going to hold out for a 150HP. Appreciate the tip though.

    I'm getting back into GA flying after several years of airline flying. Always had the desire to get back to GA but have bounced around the country living in larger cities. I don't find flying around...

    Thanks Turbo. I have no illusions of a -12 being what an-18 is and I don't plan on trying to land on any 200' gravel bars. Just looking for an airplane that will give me the most bang for my dollar...

    Right now I could swing something in the mid to upper 50's at the moment. Higher as time goes on. Thinking that I don't want to go too much above 60 regardless.

    I've considered a Pacer for a brief moment but most of my flying will be solo or with one pax.. I like the -12 better and after many years flying bigger, faster aircraft I'm wanting to do my...

    Thanks! I will. I just submitted my membership payment and apparently there is a delay in allowing access to the members only threads.

    I've read a few threads regarding the cabane V not fitting and to make sure you have it there when the welding happens to avoid the fitting issue.

    Thanks everyone who has contributed to the...

    Right now I think the plan is to look for another plane...lol

    I guess that's beyond my expertise. Has the Crosswinds -18 gear STC and the A&P said that it would bolt on. The Crosswinds STC work was done when they installed the Edo's for the first time '08. I'd...

    Didn't mean to imply that it was cheap for the gear. Just stating that the mod has been done as far as the airframe is concerned.

    Thanks MT, very good advice. I saw your plane advertised and it looked beautiful and exactly like what I am looking for. I have recently re-evaluated my budget and when I saw yours I wasn't prepared...

    Thanks for the well thought out reply Tango. I don't mind and actually would almost prefer in some ways to get into something that needed an overhaul rather than buying 1,000 hours of "unknown" from...

    Haha...thanks! Might look good with Christmas lights on them! Like AKTango said, I've looked at ads trying to see what they are going for and it's difficult to see what realistic values are when you...

    No, I definitely want the floats. I'm just dealing on a plane that has them and I'm just trying to get a good grasp of the value of the floats so I can have a better idea of the package price...

    Thanks for the update. Gives some added perspective. I understand the difficulty operating straight floats in MT. I'm blessed with 40,000 acres of liquid in front of the house.

    Thanks! I'm looking at a plane that comes with the floats and we have discussed price with and without the floats. I am trying to get a better feel for a realistic value of the floats in order to...
  23. The answer to your last question about if it...

    The answer to your last question about if it would quickly sell at the asking price is a definite no in my opinion. An emphatic NO if I'm faced with funding an overhaul. You are right about waiting...

    Yeah, it does have the -18 gear fittings so the hard part is done there. Just have to buy the -18 gear. Flaps on the other hand is definitely not an undertaking I would take on if the plane didn't...

    Asking $40k for the plane and a pair of Federal 2000 skis. $55k with Edo 2000 floats. I have a thread in the float section asking about the current market for the floats. Just didn't want to muddy...
