Default Canards are still being spotlighted

Canards still seem to have that star power.

Considering the price of a glass panel with nav/com and engine installation, it seems that the price differential between plans and kit is getting smaller and smaller.

Single screen skyview with AP is around $15k with radios, used engine $15k, plus another $5 - 10k for engine peripherals...thats $35-40k extra, once the plane is built.

I should consider a flying plane, if I wasn't enjoying the build.

Have you looked at what they want for a Velocity?
Example:
Foam for your Cozy wings: $1,717.00
Precut CNC Foam Cores from Eureka: $1,780.00 (includes the Winglets for that price)
"Hand" cut Foam Cores from Velocity $6,400.00 (no choice but to buy them from Velocity as no templates are available.)

Hmmmmm, it kind of makes you wonder why anyone would cut their own cores when the CNC cut cores are actually cheaper than the foam.

Anyway, that's the reality. $4700 in difference right off the bat that you can put towards that glass panel and you still have to skin the Velocity cores (although they do ship the wing spar pre-constructed (like that was hard to do .)
