    For Sale -BD-5 Project w/ 2 fuselage

    I have inherited a BD-5 project from my father who had great plans to build the plane but never found the time. I have 2 fuselage that are together, wings, the cockpit covers, flight controls, prop molds, an older Honda powerplant and a box or four of miscellaneous parts.

    I have no idea what is needed to complete the project. I will do my best to take photos of the parts.

    I am asking $12500 for everything. I know this is a fraction of what these parts would cost right now.

    I forgot to mention everything is located on Maryland's Eastern Shore. Shipping or transport is the responsibility of the buyer.

    I looked more at the boxes of parts....it looks like there are plenty of parts to complete the rolling chassis....many parts there are two of as this is the combination of two kits.

    Hi, hope you find a buyer.

    You might also post it on www.barnstormers.com

    One thing most people want to know up front is: does it have the short wings or the "B" (longer) wings. Not sure what the actual lengths are but that should be available on the interweb somewhere. From what I have heard, the short wings are not safe to fly with.

    And I guess you have heard that this is not a plane for a beginner builder or an average skilled pilot.

    It does however look like a good amount of work as already been completed.

    Best wishes,
    Wally

    Re: For Sale -BD-5 Project w/ 2 fuselage

    Was this your dad's first and only homebuilt project?
    What I'm really asking is how much if any building experience did he have when he started it.
    Did you determine which wing span this kit has? I believe the long wing is 21.5'.
    Do you have any idea why there are two fuselages?
    Do have have any idea which year and model Honda engine that is and maybe what it weighs?
    Is there propeller reduction drive or shaft?
    Has it been kept in the garage or has it spent time sitting out doors?
    Do have have his builder's log?
    And finally do you have any idea approximately when your dad bought the kit?

    I have a vegetable oil fueled Mercedes 300SD that might be available for trade....

    It has the latest variant of my veggie system...the only one in the world that removes the emulsified water....

    Re: For Sale -BD-5 Project w/ 2 fuselage

    This project was purchased by my father in the condition that it is in. It is actually two kits. He said the one plane is 70% complete and had been inspected periodically (by who I'm not sure). My dad is an engineer who later on entered the UAV business....I'm sure he looked this over and thought it a good buy. Not sure on the motor model....it was partially disassembled by the PO for liability purposes. There are lots of papers/plans in a box and there might be a log....I'll have to look next time I'm there.
    I believe this plane has always been inside...certainly while we have had it. I saw some handwritten dates on parts, 1983 being the earliest.

    I hope this information helps.
