Updated October 2014.  Since my 1st flight conducted on 2 Sep 06, I've managed to fly 600+ hours to include multiple
trips to the KR Gatherings and Oshkosh. I just recently completed my longest trip to date, traveling to Chino California to
the 2014 KR Gathering. I've added a video of the trip.

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.
