Dave, how did you get a Lightning Bug? On the couple video's I've seen ('Homebuilthelp' and 'Light Sport and Ultralight Flyer') the inventor Brian Austein said he was just doing it for fun and wasn't offering plans or kits. Then he died just a year or two after that Oshkosh (peacefully at home with his family around him, so it was a disease or cancer not a plane crash).

I thought the Lightning Bug was a Nick Jones design, same as the White Lightning . . . ?

Hi Jared. My Lightning Bug is the original LB from the early 1990s designed by Nick Jones. Different aircraft altogether, but same name.

Good morning all. First post. I am looking for plans for the Beechcraft D17S or Griffin Lionheart. Any clue where to look for these?
The website WWII Era Military Blueprints & Manuals | AirCorps Library has drawings for the Beech Staggerwing. Become a member for a small monthly fee and you can download them. I do not know if the drawing list is complete. I became a member several years back and have kept it. Good luck with your endeavors.

If anyone has plans for the CH-640, I'd love to build one. If anyone has any leads, please let me know. I've tried contacting the guy earlier in this thread but he hasn't responded.

G’day! I’m beginning a LMA Super Cub and would like to compare with the ‘real thing’… Are your plans complete and including build notes etc? The drawings available on the internet are fine, but I’d like a set on paper :) Would you be willing to part with them? Peter
