Ben, One of the new builders, came by the shop today to share a couple of new motors that he is going to be experimenting with. We will post more information about them as he shares it with us.

We’ve recently been working on several new and updated drawings to the builders database. We will post these drawings on the blog as well as on the Google drive database.

We have been delinquent over the last month or so and keeping up with the blog. There has been so much going on in the shop that we simply had no time to dedicate to the progress blog. We have had back-to-back light sport repairman maintenance classes  (the 120 hour course)as well as the (16 hour) inspection classes. we have had a whole series of SLSA, ELSA, an experimental amateur built aircraft certifications that we have had to complete. We have had a series of annual inspections on several aircraft. And currently have 3 aircraft awaiting annual inspection. We have been working on the articles for the Sport Aviation magazine. All of these projects are what pay for the EMG-6 project. So, although I sympathize with your desire to see more information on the EMG-6, I know you will understand.
