Looks nice!

That was on my short list, downloaded the plans 2 days before they stopped offering them free.

I'm even more interested in their 2place himax.

You should post more pictures of your build and continue posting pictures as you progress :)

My himax ultralight! Of course this coundn't possible be a ultralight it looks too much like a airplane, it needs to be taxed and regulated to death. :)
Oh, I'm sure real airplanes have those wing things and an engine. I think you're safe from tax and regulation without them

Actually if you already have a sport pilots certificate or better the only tax you pay the feds is 5 bucks every 3 years. And the only regs that will cost you more over part 103 is the DAR fee and a flight review every 2 years. So though i am not cor big government I have to admit they have not put their mitts into experimental aviation too bad yet.

Like decent roads, clean water, sewers, electricity, schools, hospitals, etc....? Having spent much of my adult life in developing countries in which government-provided or -regulated services are limited or non-existent, I think most people who claim they want to live without government meddling have no idea what they are really asking for. By the same token, having lived in countries in which aircraft homebuiliding is either nonexistent or strictly regulated, the relatively light touch of the FAA does not bother me in the slightest.

IF the U.S. Constitution is followed, it puts us in the happy middle with freedom and responsibly, not on either of the two extremes. Matthew is talking about one of the extremes.

I have a build log over at the etlb site, but I will post construction photos here if yall don't mind. There is a rumor that only one himax ever made part 103 weight. well if that is true, mine will be the second to make that weight if that is true. I built a skypup and a gyrobee that were part 103 legal, so I know the discipline it takes build aircraft that are light, probally from building scratch built rc planes as a kid.

I think I know you from somewhere. :gig: I am a hardcore libertarian, so I will just shut my mouth, I understand but this isn't the forum to discuss it. trying to figure out how to delete a duplicate post, not used to this site.

I've only ever seen one of these up close. It looked like fun, but I wouldn't have seen it up close if the guy had taken more trouble with the throttle linkage!
