    Simonini has said their engines are not suitable for tractor mount. I haven't confirmed that with the manufacturer but I've heard it a couple times from reputable sources. Maybe someone can chime in. Sorry to bring this thread back from the dead. I should be better at posting stuff. :)

    Scrappy’s Landing Gear Wings - Yay or Nay?

    I don't find much time to watch all his long videos. But when I do squeeze a little time in I am thoroughly impressed and motivated. Would love to have him swing by our shop one day to pick his brain. 😁

    What is an affordable ultralight?

    I designed my own website using a Wordpress Template with zero experience (I'm sure it shows). It works for us perfectly. You should've seen it before I calmed it down, LOL. BTW, If a couple scrambled menu headers and slides make you impatient, your airplane building patience will "tested"...

    What is an affordable ultralight?

    Our Ultralight kits start at $11,700 base model and go to $29,000 for a full titanium frame. Ready to fly $20k-$40. We need more space, right now in fact. Our 4 stroke will happen, I just don't know exactly when.

    Hello Saini Flyer, Sorry for the beyond late reply, that one snuck in there on me. For now the F-5 Fujita itself and engine is a concept that we plan to bring to fruition next year. Until we have more solid research, development, and testing done on the engine I'm keeping things under...

    Some Alternative Ultralight Single Cylinder Engines!

    The Hirth engine line is not "mine" by any means, it's just a good option for our planes. I don't believe it can be direct mounted (not a good idea). More Hirth info can be found here: http://www.recpower.com/F-33%202%20cycle%2028hp.htm.

    Some Alternative Ultralight Single Cylinder Engines!

    There sure is a lot of talk about heavy engines on this ultralight engine thread. I get excited when I see new thread posts but that quickly fades when it regards Geo and full size rotary engines. Valuable information, don't get me wrong, just maybe for another thread.

    VB, you and your skillset cross my mind very often but the potential price tag usually blurs my intention to follow through.

    Thanks for link WBNH! I worry sometimes that people will be turned off due to our size. All we can do is make things happen, show off our capabilities, and be who we are. No shame in being small. I believe that a few of the major key factors to being successful are: "answer the phone and...
