    A solution looking for a problem

    ha! that's when you realize youtube is scary: it just show the same videos to everybody, as I've also watched them and thought 'you could probably shape a fuselage in one shot with this' ;)

    Trailerable Single Seater

    Fiy and iirc, it's a non flying real size mock up of this ingenious man idea. I believe he is not an engineer and was looking on the french ulm forum for help to calculate the wing structure.

    Could you put together an automotive pusher power plant mostly off-the-shelf?

    You mean like this ls3 velocity? Not a pusher but an actual diesel "for the people" (so 10k$ not 130k$), the cleanest conversion i've seen so far, by a Peugeot mechanic:

    plans build amphibious aircraft

    It's a dream of mine to build a replica (and partly why i'm here) but it feels like a tall order for this not-mechanical engineer. From what i've gathered, the RC version are not really well flying as well, just in case structural design wasn't enough, you have to find a stable configuration...

    Double Eagle or other alternative cheap and easy builds

    I don't know about Macedonia, but EASA mostly deal with everything that is regulated (cs-23 and up. It's an agency created to certify airbuses afterall). Homebuilt and microlight are typically regulated on a national level, so not sure if the european laws can help him. With the 600kg light...
