    Seth's Baker Bobcat Restoration

    In case anyone is interested... I had a chance to inspect a SuperCat here in New Zealand that I was hopeful would be what I wanted. 20 years ago when built the original builder (quite a large gentleman) enlarged the cockpit a bit, added another bulkhead between the wing and tail and...

    Seth's Baker Bobcat Restoration

    What a find!!! Hi guys! I'm in New Zealand and have just purchased some unused plans and the construction manual for the Bobcat - arrived in the mail from Miami this morning. I am viewing an old unfinished Supercat in a couple of weeks down-country with the idea of purchasing and...

    Wanted - Baker Bobcat / Supercat plans

    Great news on you moving the plans - pleased for you. Thanks for your patience with me. Terrible news on the blade! What happened?

    Wanted - Baker Bobcat / Supercat plans

    Erik - any chance of scanning and sharing the newsletters? That would be awesome! It’s frustrating that much of the Bobcat history is before the internet became a daily part of life. Especially as the Yahoo Groups have been shut down. We’ve hot a problem with it not being possible to...

    Hummel Windwagon

    I had "Inspected and approved 2004" sticker on it from the sport aircraft inspector... but I don't know what was done after that!

    Hummel Windwagon

    Here's the inspection video - note it was a head-worn camera so the angles aren't perfect but you get the idea. I've been around planes for ever - I am a plane nutter lol but this was my first pre-buy inspection. I've been to OSH twice and done both woodworking and ali workshops. I did bring a...

    Hummel Windwagon

    I’ve just returned from inspecting it. Thanks for your feedback. It’s been built from a 1982 first-generation set of James (Morry) Hummel #164 plans as the Hummel Windwagon. I’ve seen the plans. It’s got the first changes that Morry made before he made a few more and called it the Hummelbird...

    Hummel Windwagon

    Hi team. I'm looking at a second-hand project (auction) of an un-flown and stored Hummel Windwagon. I get to physically check it out later today. It has the plans with it and it's a tail-dragger. Has anyone looked at what's involved with converting it to a trike undercarriage? The condition...

    Where can I buy Asso X kit?.

    I’ve done youshop from the US before (and if I’m really struggling... a twin in Fond du Lac, 20 minutes from Oshkosh) 😎 Time to start having a proper look.

    Where can I buy Asso X kit?.

    Looking great. I've admired the Asso series from the other side of the world for a long time. The Asso vi Junior would suit my needs with out microlight laws and wood skills. I've looked at a few wooden designs... I might have to try and locate some plans! Never easy convincing people to...

    Wanted - Baker Bobcat / Supercat plans

    Anyone with a set of plans & construction guide? Are you willing to package them up and post them to New Zealand (standard US Postal is fine)? Happy to pay by Paypal... Many thanks, Pete

    Aero Designs Pulsar

    An awesome machine but pretty small inside. I fit at 5’7” and 170lbs but two-up... you need a small passenger. I’d love one...

    Volksplane wing question.

    Slightly off topic (but I didn’t mention it first lol) I’m looking at the Supercat at the moment and I’ve found one in the Czech Republic that looks like a full-case VW. As for size-wise, I’m seeing some with an open cockpit so height isn’t an issue...

    Hummelbird - the original. Trailer-width

    First post here... I've searched everywhere and I can't find the measurements. There's a Hummelbird in my country for sale on a local auction website. Deceased-estate. Mossler 40hp trike-u/c and it was flying before being parked in a hangar a few years ago. Now... does anyone know the real...

    DIY Electric Ultralight on YouTube

    I agree 100%. Entertaining and I wish him luck - but he really doesn't appear to understand how heavy ply/foam/glass combos are. Very over-engineered... This will be entertaining! Pete

    Sport Planes That Don't Get Enough Attention.... List Them Here!

    I learned to fly there in 1988. It was an awesome day... you always remember your first solo! Now I need to decide (at 49) what do I build knowing that I don't have an unlimited budget. I am leaning towards a Hummel Ultracruiser as we are not limited to the 254lb/63mph limit here... building...

    Sport Planes That Don't Get Enough Attention.... List Them Here!

    Sonerais.... well I did some flying but I'm out-of-touch. I am usually in the rh seat with my camera (commercial photographer) but I get enough stick time to make me dangerous! First - a couple more pics. Me in the dark shirt in the back seat of SNW - trying it out for size. I'm...

    Sport Planes That Don't Get Enough Attention.... List Them Here!

    I'm looking at homebuilt ideas at the moment... most likely a Hummel ultracruiser at the moment but in my past-years, I was never a "straight and level" guy. The 5th one I've been told is about 80% done and may be available. Ahgrrrr what do i do!!! Very tempting. The Jabiru motor needs a...
