    wooden aircraft plans

    Does anybody know where I can get wooden aircraft plans online for a good price? I would prefer them to be ultralight but it's not nessasary.

    Take a look at Portal de Aviación Ultraligera - Ultralight Aviation Portal. It is a Spanish site but click on "English" and you will find nearly 400 plans. Sadly only a few are still accessible. Most have been either suspended or you need to have a swop item but it would be difficult to find a plan to swop that they don't already have. Anyway there are enough to whet your appetite. If you have anything specific in mind feel free to get back to me as I downloaded 80 or so before they started the restrictions.
    Cheers,

    The plans of the Flying Flea are now for free online. The last member of the Mignet family gave the legacy to the world. Flying flea is a small, but fun airplaine. Ideal for a beginner. Fun for a experienced pilot. You can park it in a normal garage due to the folding wings. You can learn more about it on:flying flea - Nest of Dragons

    Pleeeeaaaase, don't buy Falconar plans. In the Flying Flea world they are known as bad translations of foreign plans. Also as very bad copies of old blueprints. And in this group i even found remarks that they miss data. One even tells that the location of CG was not on the plans. Sooooorry. That is not the way to sell plans to people who want to built a airplane. Selling them as archives would be better acceptable.

    Banty plans were $25 a few years ago. That is very reasonable.

    Falconar offers more than Flying Flea plans. His Maranda, Cubmajor, SAL Mustang, and F series plans all have very good reputations for being very detailed and complete. He offers more designs than that, just fewer builders.

    I'm very happy with the plans from Chris Falconar... I'm now officially building two of his planes... the Falconar F 10 (Jodel D9 variant but bigger for a larger power plant) and his F 295 E which is a true ultralight version of the Flying Flea...my idea being it would be fun to have a little ultralight easy to build variant while I took my time on the F 10. His plans couldn't be more precise and he answers my questions through email very quickly. Chris is an aeronautical engineer... I totally trust his plans. I'm also using his HIPEC covering system.

    So which one are going to go with Janderson? Just so you know I'm building a wood plane on my YouTube channel right now and sharing whatever wisdom i've gleaned the hard way.

    Your website is what inspired me to build my own plane Ron! I still spend a lot of time in there reading.
