Re: vibration issue on first flight

Do you have any vibration issues during run up? Does the frequency change with prop/RPM changes on the ground or in flight?

Re: Express-builder forum

Also, there are partially built kits that are around for much less than a new kit, although the new kits have some improvements. There is a guy in Nevada that had one a few months back about 65% complete, and it had the engine and prop for around 35k. I can look up his info if you would like it.
