John And don't forget that the same percentages apply to the fact that the designer is, at minimum, 45-75 % more available on line for questions, and you can have plans at least 45-75 % faster by printing them off yourself. The QFII manual is infinitely more detailed for a first time builder; and the additional launch height and refinement of the design is of a similar magnitude. It is obvious that many people will continue to build and love The Bug. It is similar to the fact that many enjoy and fly the older designs like the Spirit. I have a Spirit, also, and really enjoy flying it. Would I build another? No. I can find better designs that have come to market and that I have become aware of.
