Re: Jaysen's Mini 580 plan

The 22mm is the minimum width for the one design racing. The build specifies pine. So I have to use the same dimensions but can use “stronger” materials as I desire. I just can’t reduce dimensions. It’s going to come down to availability and price. The more the mill needs to hand sort and reject boa...

One of the driving forces here is availability. It is easy to find clear oaks. Not so much for pine. Certainly not at a reasonable price. That gets further complicated by the need to have 5/4 milled to non-standard US sizes. I’m hoping that the 40lbs estimated weight gain can be offset by a couple c...

Has a elastic cord head band adjustment 3. Has ventilation panels 4. Has neck flap that is NOT part of the liner (sit...

GB,

I admire the "fork it! let's do this!" flair. The quality work you do makes it seem like you are less seat-of-the-pants for technique/skill. It's encouraging to see that I'm not as crazy as I feel.

Build on!

Re: Phantom 16/18

The plans/cnc would Normally not include hatches. Those you would need to do on your own. For them to do that, they would need to change the CNC cut files for each kit. Jeff and Reid may say otherwise these days. Won’t hurt to ask them.
