"Here’s my Roy Nelder Moffet built from your kit FF-82. A lot of wood to put together, but the construction went well once I got a bigger building board. This is one large plane! Needed 3/16” incidence block under front of wing and 1/32” shim at back of stab to get smooth hand glide. Motor is twelve strand 1/4" FAI Super Sport, unbraided so there’s a little motor vibration at take off. Test flights so far are promising using 1/16” down and right thrust on the 15-inch, wooden 2-bladed freewheeling prop. Plane seems a little sensitive at times to winds from the side, probably due to its large rudder and stab. Thanks for making this great old timer available." - Mark Chomyn
