I am contemplating starting my first airplane project and am a bit daunted by the number of options out there. I wanted to see if anyone could give me some opinions about the absolute easiest and most inexpensive plans-built 2-place airplane designs out there. I'm thinking something along the lines of the MiniMax but for two people. I've been looking at the VP2 a lot, but I've heard that it really doesn't have enough lift to transport two people. I've also been looking into the Pietenpol air camper but it sounds like this might take a very long time to build. One other design I have been considering is the RW8 ragwing PT2S. Any thoughts on these? Are there other designs I should be considering? I can't emphasize enough how moderate my expectations for this plane are. I just want it to be able to fly with two people (and maybe a backpack). My budget limits me to building from plans rather than a kit. I have experience working with wood, so that's what I'm mostly considering now. Thanks for your help.
