 If you've built or re-built a Stits Playmate, I'd sure love to hear from you.  I'm in the process of restoring a Playmate finished in 1972 and wanted someone with experience to bounce a few ideas off of.. I guess Ray Stits figured that if you couldn't read his plans, you shouldn't be working on the plane.  The Playmate does not have a builders manual.  :-( 

Here's my website:  http://stitsplaymate.blogspot.com

Any contact info, advice or other feedback would be greatly appreciated. 


Thank You,


Mike Saathoff

Hi Mike,


We see that you've also posted your question over on the Homebuilders Headquarters Forum. To make sure everyone sees the entire thread related to this topic, we'd suggest that everyone post their replies on the Hombuilders Headquarters thread. You can access it here:




I hope there's plenty of feedback on this great airplane from Ray Stits!
