    Homebuilt helicopter

    Hello all. Im a new memeber as of today 11-20-03. I want to build a home built ultralight helicopter, preferably 2 seat if possible. Can anyone suggest plans. I am mechanically inclined, however i can not machine parts. I have purchased the Furia helicopter and it seems yo umust prefab all your own parts by machining. I would appreciate any
    and all advice. You may post a reply here or email me directly at jaaugust@myexcel.com. Thanks

    A friend of mine at work is currently salivating over the Rotorway Exec 162. www.rotorway.com
    I'd get real excited about a homebuilt chopper myself, but I'm in some minor mountain country and I haven't seen anything feasable that has enough altitude performance.

    Have a look at the scorpion.

    there are a lot of 'kits'/semi complete scorpions for sale on ebay, vortech etc

    however there may be safety issues as it's a rather old design.

    Hi Jeff, im not sure if this will help but i have just released an information manual on the Lonestar kit homebuilt helicopter. It was a single seat design but had some interesting features. It does contain the partial machining drawings and inst quite as complex as the Furia. Also on my website under products you will find a link to a guy who makes AW95 parts and also does custom helicopter parts on request. Hope this helps? Check out my web page at http://www.redbackaviation.com and in particular the page http://redbackaviation.com.au/lonestar_manual.html feel free to ask if you have any questions.
    Thanks,
    Adam

    In the U.S., there are no two seat ultralights at all any more.
