I want to build an ultra lite
    #3175418 - 09/24/04 04:26 PM (12 years, 4 months ago)

Does anyone here have one, have built one, or fly them? This has been on my to do list for a while and i plan on doing it within the next year.

That's cool. I go to a dropzone on an airport where there are lots of ultra lites flying around. My dad and I wanted to take lessons, but it's very expensive so we decided not to. They look fun and easy to fly. As long as you know what you're doing, go for it. I wouldn't try if you have any doubt about your mechanic abilities, though. Don't want to mess up with something that could fall out of the air even at 20 feet and end up majorly injuring/killing you.

Personally I would rather build a personal helicopter. I just like helicopters more.

Think you could send a copy of those plans my way?

This has been on my to-do list for quite some time as well :smile:

me too. the canadian ul rules are way better than the states right now. we can build up to 1200 lbs gross and still be an advanced ultralight. but no passengers tho :frown: . athough not many of my friends want to fly with me anyway...  i'm going to build out of wood from plans (i'm a cabinetmaker), unless i make some money somehow to buy a quickbuild, but i doubt that'll happen. fisher flying products - horizon1.   

good luck

if you're in the states, look into buying supplies and such in canada - work that exchange rate.
