Updated October 2017. Since my 1st flight conducted on 2 Sep 06, I've managed to fly 770+ hours to include multiple trips to the KR Gatherings and Oshkosh.
Our Airport at Leeís Summit MO was the recent host of the 2017 KR Gathering.† Iíve added a link to the photos below.
My longest trip to date was traveling to Chino California to the 2014
KR Gathering. A video of the trip is as follows;

The KR-2S is a experimental airplane, a home built. It is a single engine low wing design airplane. My airplane has a
normal cruise capability of 130 mph with 140 mph maximum speed in level flight with two passengers. I purchased the
plans for the KR2-S from Rand Robinson in 1997. I studied the plans for a year before I began construction in June 1998.
My plan was to finalize all design decisions before I began building the airplane. I pretty much stuck to the plans with only
a few modifications. I widened the fuselage 1.5" and installed the trigear since I have little tail-dragger experience. I am
using the standard RAF 48 airfoil. Engine is a aero converted VW engine, a Revmaster 2100. The airplane was scratch
built as much as I thought was practical to save on costs, but at an increase in building time. It took 1500 hours and 8
years to complete the project. Total cost was less than $15,000.
