looking to spend about $150 on a new set of plans, can be anything ragwing special, skybolts, <>PITTS!!!!<>, anything that doesn't need a lot of welding and is aerobatic
"There are tons of partial projects for sale; a 1/2 built airplane is worth about 1/2 of what was spent on materials. You can take advantage of that situation buying one of these."
That's what I did. Knowing what I wanted, I searched until finding my Baby Lakes on Ebay. I got most of the materials for the cost of the tubing. Quality work was done too (i.e. welding). The plans were included, as were wheels/brakes, tailwheel. It doesn't hurt to shop for a while. I personally wanted to do more than 50% of the work, so I passed on one without engine and needing recovered for a little more money. I had also passed on great deals on other kinds of planes because they weren't a Baby Lakes. Best of luck!
