    Gotcha I don't need anything specific but i'm a builder also but have a good assortment, but always like to add stuff i don't already have. Is the hardware stock in Canada or the US?

    Hey Gang! well my apologies for the lack of posting of the progress lately but my wife seems to think building another hay storage shelter for her horse is more important then building this airplane... (insert sarcasm here)! LOL. Well we finally were able to get the chassis and small bits back...

    New Shop Tool!

    Well we've had some time to play with our new shop CNC Router, and with the help of a good friend and fellow HBA Member with some CAD skills, we are verifying the dimensions of our first soon to be cut aluminum part. I cut it out of wood first to verify fit and finish, so to speak.

    New Shop Tool!

    Hey guys, thanks for all your comments! Believe me when I say "I have thought and considered all of what you mentioned" the entire time i've been building this. 550lbs is my target weight for finished airplane in "sport flying trim". I'm not a wealthy man and am building on a budget (some of...

    BJC, Minimum empty weight for Formula 1 is 500 lbs. Realistically for me, I won't be all that close to that, cause theres no way I can justify to my wife that I'm building an aircraft to only fly 1 week a year hahahaha. As it sits right now on the gear, engine, fuselage, tail, fuel/oil system...

    So here's a pic of one of my first attempts at a custom monogramed head rest for my racer. Didn't turn out he way I wanted it to however I learned a lot! My next attempt will be better! I'm loving my LongMill!

    Hey gang! Well I know its been some time since I posted, but we are at the point on the wing that some steps are taking a long time to complete. Its big progress but not much interesting stuff to show you as often hahaha. So to recap, as you can see above we completed the load/stress test on the...
