I'm only 14 and turning 15 (and starting flight training in 1-3 years) and my friend Tom, who use to fly for American Eagle Express, finished building with help from my dad, a Murphy Rebel (regristry N8499Q) and it really boosted me to the Experimental/Homebuilt side of avaition that I've never seen before and now I'm thinking of building a kit plane in the future. I always loved STOL aircraft like the Maule or Piper Super Cubs and I really would like to build something that can take-off in less than 200 feet and isn't too complex. I always loved the Zeniths ever since I learned what one was and if I were to get a Zenith, it would be the CH-750 because it has more room than the CH-701 (Bubble windows added to the CH-750). Although the Zeniths dont seem very fast and are a bit small and I would like to have something fuel efficient, roomy, and has 4 seats (bring family or friends flying). The Only Zenith with 4 seats was the CH-801 but Zenith doesn't sell the kit anymore and the CH-750 only has 2 seats. So this left me with 2 other kitplanes I've seen, the Van's RV-10, or Glasair Sportsman. The Glasair looks awesome and sleek but the 2 back seats seem kinda small and even though I've seen some Glasair Sportsman's with STOL modifications, I 've read or heard from some where that the Sportsmen had a stall speed of 50-60 knots and that seemed too high. The RV-10 is another sweet looking plane and seems much more roomier than the Sportsmen. On top of that, the RV-10 airframe only kit was around $50,000 while the Sportsman was around $110,000. So I'm not really considering the Glasair anymore and came up with the thought of owning a Zenith CH-750, and a Van's RV-10 for nice long cross-country trips. But that idea to me sounds a little too spendy and crazy and would need LOTS of time and attention to the kitplanes. But if I get a CH-750, I'm gonna put a very basic VFR panel and it will be only VFR with simple gauges while the RV-10, is gonna have the left side of the panel with gauges and the right side with a glass cockpit screen. I'm estimating that both planes will cost around $200,000 - $250,000 but I may be wrong. No experience with money or finances but just want to know whats a better option when it comes to building kitplanes so that I'll know in the future if I ever consider building a plane. Any Suggestions? Happy Flying!
