Hello all,

I just wanted to comment on the great information shared on this site and the MP8K group as well.

I am in the process of building an MK2000 and I find the articles here helpful and motivating.

I wanted to specifically thank Tom Pomeroy for his drawings and personal notes of the Chidgey SS from which I am fabricating my very own copy. Thanks to Andy Horka for the scissors. Having them will definitely speed up the process. I am waiting to get all of the mechanics done before I start on the encoder, RF deck and receiver (Thanks to Kees for the kits). Gordon and everyone else contributing support to the project really encouraged me to go ahead. I am not a professional machinist but I have a well equipped shop. I have worked in the electronics industry (RF) for a little over a quarter century so I’m looking forward to the tweaking part. I was quite excited to see the helicopter update because my ultimate purpose will be to fly helis with a single stick! Without sounding trite, they say “it takes a village to raise a child” well, the MK2000 is maturing and is something everyone in this group can be proud of. I will post pictures when it is completed.

Thanks All,



p.s. I have to mention Pete Carr for posting his airplane and MK2000 in the MA magazine without which I’d never known of it’s existence.
