It takes leg work, or well, you know, actually looking. I have always liked the VP I and II and I look on several sites waiting to find one that someone wants to get rid of. I'm selling all the CH 701 parts that I've built because I want to fly, not build anymore but, If there was a VP project that didn't need too much work, I'd be on it like stink on a monkey !The $38 Volmer, $99 Woodhopper, and free Poorboy must be hallucinations then.
I felt challenged though, so I went to Barnstormers Ultralight section, and in under 120 seconds of just reading down the page (I know, magic rare skill), I found this:

One thing I learned, is the people that are actually building airplanes non-stop, or flying them non-stop, are not hanging out on this forum. They don't hang out on any internet forums. When I tell them I do, and they should check it out... they are like why? Waste of time. Maybe they login and create an account, look around, realize there is nothing here for them, and leave, and go back to churning out airplanes, or flying every week. They simply have no care or time to dick around with talking about building airplanes or flying airplanes, when they *are* building or flying airplanes.
Find those people, they aren't here on this forum... it's kind of hap hazard... facebook, emails directly, random chance, running into them in person, etc. Those people are way more friendly, and way more generous, and have a shop full of stuff to give you. They have few friends, so if they take a liking to you, boom... they will literally shove stuff your way. That's how I got Plane # 3 for free It's those that have the least, that will give you the most. Because they know all to well the boat you're sailing in. Or they've been in that boat, a long, long time, once upon a time.
Today a local contact offered to take me flying in their Cessna. I didn't ask. They just got back from Oshkosh and started telling me all about it. Wasn't expecting it. It happens a lot though. If I want a plane ride at any time, I got several outstanding offers I can take up on at anytime... flying for free, no airplane ownership required.
Why is price depressed? Because that's no CGS Hawk, nobody knows what it is, and every body was too lazy to do a little research and figure out what it was. Well, except me. Oddly, it said in big letters exactly what it was on the tail, but there was no shot of that in the listing photos. For rock bottom prices, you want to find ads that list it with very vague descriptions such as "ultralight airplane" or "airplane" or "ultralight" or "not sure what this is but"
