In January 2009 I bought the kit that Dene advertised on the whisper site. I believe it is Number 39.
The factory will build the wings and the carry tough spar. Dene will complete the fast build kit and then he will do all the fiberglass build and finishing work and I will complete all the mechanical stuff, engine, instruments, controls, cabin finishing.
Dene has started and put the fuselage together only to discover that this kit was made with the nose wheel option. Although it can be changed easily, after much discussion and advice (due to my past power flying experience) I have decided to keep the nose wheel option for safety reasons. I have two daughter who are learning to glide, although it an old fart like me and not them they are worried about.
I have not decided on the power plant yet, and advice would be appreciated. Due to my size and where (Howick & Drakensburg), how I want to fly (glide) am leaning towards a 100hp with feather able prop. As I am spending a lot having the bulk of the craft built, money and overcapitalization is a criteria.
My first photo from Dene is the joining or the fuselage. He tells me has now installed the firewall.
