Many thanks for this, yes thats the aircraft. 500 hours is do able I reckon, Ive really trawled over the website but cannot see too many details on the Ninja.(I know its a bit dearer.) What sort of a background do you have Doug, (I'm used to building houses not aeroplanes) So I'm not sure if I am able to undertake such a project. (The wiring in particular seems a bit daunting.)
Also a basic idea of cost of the "not included" items (instruments etc) would be great, and why do you think it is such a great aircraft?
My estimate for instruments for my Skyranger Swift project (A "hybrid" panel: some digital, with basic "steam guage" backup)... ASI, ALT, MGL "Extreme" EFIS with AH and compass senders, MGL V10 radio, Airbox Clarity GPS, mode C transponder and all switches, circuit breakers, isolator, etc, is around $9500.00. I already have an electric turn coordinator, so may as well use it (for it's rudder ball if nothing else). That's my tentative plan, I may change some of the components.
