  2. Mr Hillberg
    Do you have any plans to put the TandemMouse on the market in kit form or offer plans?
    I’ve read that the prototype has flown, how far did the flight testing get?
    I’m looking for another project (as soon as I get a house sold)
    I’ve built a Smith Super Cub before, but I’ve been interested in helicopters for quite some time
    Thanks for your time and would it be OK for me to call you at the number listed?
