Yes, get an EXPERT to look at it!   Where do you live?

Contact Bill Oertel.   He stays pretty busy but maybe you will get lucky.
He makes a living repairing canard airplanes and is EXPERT.   You NEED him.
Paying him for advice will save you money and headaches in the end.
909-738-8300    He is in Chino.

Also David Orr keeps lists on canards for sale.   He charges 3% as a finder's
fee if you use his information.

Be VERY careful in buying homebuilt airplanes.   There are a LOT of mistakes
that can be made.   Some mistakes are quite dangerous.     I made a mistake
on making my rudder/brake cables and would have lost one rudder (either side)
if I had applied the brakes VERY hard.   I did that when I saw sitting still so
I found out the easy way.    Those are now fixed but how do you know
when you buy a plane that someone else built?
