    I seem to remember it was built in Tasmania, Australia.

    That's kinda cool. I can't really tell how the wing mounts though.

    I like that Basic Flyer, kinda like the ultimate fantasy man-carrying Hangar Rat!

    except it’s landing gear attachment, it’s indeed an interesting little critter.

    The F-UCKA with a parasol comes very close to the Ranger, wouldn’t it?

    Tringle based system. Canopy framing is the 3rd hardpoint.

    and with two outrigger struts the triangle would be perfect.

    how are those existing fuselage struts attached to the wings?

    I bet it could be made to 55 kg.

    Guys, it is not a large step to build a tube bender capable of bending a 5in 2024 tube.

    Why would you want to bend it? 2024 has a max elongation of about 19% at break, you could only put a slight curve into the tube which would detract from its resistance to buckling.
    To successfully bend a 5” thin walled (1/16”wt) tube you would have to heat it to a plastic state (near melting point) and use a sophisticated mandril bender, something the average amateur would not have access to.
