welllll, the three or four really bad reports of high maintenance on the mt (none of them were prop strikes) and i just do not like wood outside. I know, I know, i build furniture out of wood for my other hobby, but indoor furniture.

the only main entrance door i made was a real PIA, laminated 3/4 inch oak core, every rail and stile was covered with 1/4 inch hand sawn oak veneer inside and out. the raised panels were quarter sawn oak to resist warping and for the flake grain and each panel had an inside panel, 1/4 inch foam insulation and an out side panel.

Wood and the outdoors is a PIA

So the bad reports and the good reports and no wood on the aero composites sold me.
