    I have had a close eye on Fisher Flying for a few years now, they were offering a kit for $8500 including a motor and prop. The only thing left to buy was instruments! With 2 seater aircraft with quickbuild option at $20,000, I was seriously considering it. But this year they've announced they're only selling plans for a while, the guy in charge is selling up I think. That means the end of a good, solid, cheap kit build aircraft

    I have heard that these Sky Ranger's are the easiest microlight to put together though, so it's definitely worth a thought. Wanted some information from some owners, heard they're pretty slow, but I am unsure if this is because "snobs" are telling me about them haha
