I am looking to purchase another set of plans but this time the stretch model, preferably tricycle gear. Figured I would see what others have available before purchasing a new set.
Thanks everyone

Of all the things you will buy to build a Sonerai the least expensive thing is likely the plans. The new plans are a real bargain.

My intention to purchase used/pre-owned plans wasn't about saving money, it was to pay someone who already owns a set they no longer need. Even if they wanted the same price as the new set. I just wanted to do someone a favour who has either changed their mind or are finished with them and wants their money back.

Do you have an o-200 in your bird? How do you like it in comparison to the VW?

The VW engine had inadequate takeoff and climb performance at high density altitude so I began the O-200 conversion. Life happened so it has been on the back burner way too long and I haven't  finished it yet. I also have a Cherokee 235  and Nesmith Cougar so the mission for the Sonerai has changed, it is a 2L built single seat and will be built with no electric as fast fun inexpensive to fly sport plane. with high compression pistons and custom cam climb rate should no longer be an issue.
