  Dear Alan Cassidy,
To date 18 One Designs are now flying.  The cost of building a One Design has
been as low as $20,000 and as high as $85,000.  The builder of the $20,000
machine did everything himself including the engine rebuild.  The $85,000 One
Design the owner only wrote the checks for a hired builder.
I feel that the One Design is still the most performance for the dollar and
has the added benefit of being an airplane easy enough to build at home.   I
have yet to see  any plans built/homebuilt aerobatic aircraft have the
performance of a One Design.
BTW have you priced a new Pitts S-1T lately?
