Well one thing 'wrong' is there's no indication of where the airplane is located nor is there a location shown in your profile info. Other than that it looks nice but I need a two-place right now so I'm not your guy.

:) Yeah, yeah... The point was you might trigger some interest if the ad told someone it was close by.

S-1Ts are certainly worth every penny, when certified, Experimental that price drops in half. Even though it makes zero sense, thats how most think. So, ive had a few people ask me about the ad on barnstormers and they all said the same thing, its priced a little high. Not my words, its theirs! Dont shoot the messenger.

Not to start an argument but personally I would think the opposite for a single place. I'd much rather have an equally well built E-AB, I can do anything I want with it.

I certainly understand the logic for a certified S2 because you can instruct/make money with it.

Regards,

Jack

Yeah I can see both sides of the argument. With the T you’re buying a piece of mind knowing it’s factory built.

With experimental if you don’t have pictures of the inside of the wing you could have popsicle sticks and hot glue under the fabric.

Just my $0.02

There are homebuilt aircraft that might put a factory plane to shame. But you are correct the certified bird should be of known quality. With the E-AB one better know what to look for.

Your $0.02 may be worth more than my $0.02 too?

I always thought all S1-T's were factory built. Can anyone enlighten me on the history? When the T plans were available, etc...Thanks,
Dennis

The first three T models were built in Homestead as experimental airplanes. They had longer engine mounts, a different cowling design and stock S-1S wings. The factory airplanes had a kit offering much like the S-1E kit airplanes before them. Factory parts assembled by the builder. There were no plans offered.

I bought a certified plane after looking at a few experimentals that gave me cold shivers (like the 202) etc. The factory certified plane was twice the cost but its never let me down.
Now that I know more I could safely buy an experimental S but 20 years ago I went the safe route. Friend of mine now deceased went the experimental route and for years I was jealous of his shiny composite monoplane:(
