    Single-seat ultralight puddlejumper: the "Carbonmax"

    I think Hot Wings is right. There seems to be a large contingent of stol aircraft owners that do a lot of group flying, and quite a bit of the time it seems that they are flying one up. So perhaps a small, inexpensive single place would do well.

    For Sale Viking Dragonfly MKII "Quick Build" - $1,500!!!

    This is from a different thread, but might be useful. Don't know if he could dissasemble. "Had a guy with a 28 foot enclosed trailer haul it. He hauled it from southern California to the middle of Nebraska for 2100 $ He is looking to do more of this kind of work . I know there are a lot of...

    Single-seat ultralight puddlejumper: the "Carbonmax"

    Although I prefer a high wing along the lines of the Ranger, one that you "starddle", rather than sit on or in, I think that sming is correct that an inexpensive and attractive(sexy),easy to assemble single place could find a decent market. Carbonmax is a good name. Maybe 2 x's on the end:)

    Merlin/Virus/Ranger/Lone Ranger Inspired Carbon Ultralight?

    That is pretty dad-gummed neat! Could quite possibly use the wing and tail feathers, or a variation thereof, mated to a molded carbon fuselage. Perhaps instead of rag and tube tail feathers, could use carbon honeycomb flat panels? Don't know which would be lighter, but the carbon could be...

    The future of Wood.

    I suppose someone with an entreprenureal bent (and $$$) could find a trustworthy source, purchase a truck load of quarter sawn DF out west, and start grading and marketing it.

    Merlin/Virus/Ranger/Lone Ranger Inspired Carbon Ultralight?

    That’s a pretty cool looking airplane. I’m thinking more of the high wing though.

    Merlin/Virus/Ranger/Lone Ranger Inspired Carbon Ultralight?

    I hear ya. I am thinking about building an air bike myself. I guess I’m thinking more in terms of an attractive, conventional design, in a quick build kit. Something where you can hang the wings, tail feathers, engine and landing gear on and go flying. I don’t know if such a creature could be...

    Merlin/Virus/Ranger/Lone Ranger Inspired Carbon Ultralight?

    I have been following the the Ranger and lone Ranger threads of FritzW and RTMF, respectively, along with the different Affordaplane threads, Quickbuild(ish),as well as others. My thought would be to have a molded carbon fiber fuselage in the style of the Merlin PSA or Pipistrel Virus, but...

    Review of the Affordaplane?

    I realize this is an older thread, but I have been reading the A-Plane threads recently as I have just come across it in during a search of ultralights. This plane appears to have more than it's fair share of detractors, but I think it is a pretty interesting design. I think the biggest positve...
