    My experience is that even the most "cream-puff" airplanes will require something fixed. A good, serious pre-buy is money well spent. You might consider getting the best airframe, and planning on...

    I vote for a PA-18-95 (90HP) if you can find a good one. Arrange a pre-purchase inspection - money well spent and money saved. Find someone like Steve Pierce to do it. You'll learn to FLY the plane...
