    Flying illegally!

    Not as friendly as you think, you need a a lisence to fly a microlight that alone will set you around 5k€ you also need to register your aircraft and have pay an insurence. Thats allot to pay to fly an airplane that cost 1500€ to build and fly it just for fun.

    Flying illegally!

    I know many (most) of you are Americans flaying under the part 103 ultralight rule but over here in Europe they really like papperwork. i'm not a big fan of that, i think flying is about freedom (within reason ofc). realistically what do i risk for flying an unregistered aircraft with no pilot...

    Homemade Autopilot with a Raspberry/computer

    I was thinking about how nice it would be to have autopilot/auto stabilizer for long journeys. Garmin autopilots are too expencive for my taste. Has anyone done it? If not i'll start to build one myself from scratch.

    Is it ok to tack weld with a stick then use oxy-acetyl to finish the job?

    Tacking with a stick is faster, easyer, and more economical, also i wont have to heat the area i need to weld multiple times and possibly end up making it weak.

    Is it ok to tack weld with a stick then use oxy-acetyl to finish the job?

    I'm not a welding expert by any standards, i read on various forum that using Oxy-Acetyl for fuslage was the only recomanded way to go as it has (supposedly) stronger welds and remove the need of any pre/post heat treatment to avoid cracks and tensions.

    Using aluminum 2024 t3 as spars?

    I appologize if i'm posting this in the wrong section of the forum. i'v been stuck trying to figure out how to design a proper wood spar for few weeks now, i came to the conclusion that the material was too unpredictable for me and i just don't have the necessary "wood skills" to trust myself...

    What did you do on your airplane project today?

    I'm still in the design phase, i decided to drop the wood spars and use aluminum tubes instead
