Hello Angel,

Well you are asking a very big question. I don't think anyone will be able to provide you with the "wright brothers" solution you are looking for. It's a lot of responsibility for anyone to make some design suggestions to you and expect you to risk your life.

Anyway, what I suggest is that you try to get a set of plans for an already designed aircraft. There are many simple designs out there that are just what you are asking for.

check out the affordaplane (http://affordaplane.com/) or Wing Ding, just to name a couple.

You can see a list of ultralight designs at this link:

Play Safe!

I too advocate the use of building from an accepted existing design, but then also being one who is designing one of my own, I can also say that this is an excellent and interesting way to go, just don't expect it to be easier, quicker or cheaper, as I can assure you it is none of the above.
Unless you have an educational background in aeronautical design and engineering, it will be quite a learning experience, but most definately a worthwhile one, you will learn so much more about what keeps you in the air and moving about that what you would doing it any other way.
:D

Well i know it will be lots of sweat and hard work but it wont be hard for me. I have lots of knowledge abot aircraft designe and ruls of the air and all about it i need some general plan how to build aircraft, so i would appriciate if some one has plans for kite i like to bild or "airbike" it seams quite a chalange for me. :) and i have lots of material readi , aluminium pipes and joints. but i need sugestion also about material for coverage of the wings .
see ya
