Five or six years ago, I had the same thought. Make the struts on my old 172 into lifting surfaces! This was such genius, I couldn't believe nobody had figured it out. In the very best traditions of Ralph Kramden and Fred Flintstone, I was counting the millions already...
Same here. Great minds huh? Never actually built it though. Just shopped a pic to illustrate it.

If he did, it would be an honor. I watched part of the video and so many names.
I'm just an old WV redneck having fun.

Seeing those inflatable spray booths more and more often. Gonna need me one of those.

Those skin panels look really nice but what's really awesome is seeing that decked out and rigged frame that goes under it. Everything looks well thought out, if not almost a bit excessive.

I like his bulkhead fitting design. I happen to have a Haas VF2 arriving in about a month...

Dude is a one man airplane factory.

EVERY. SINGLE. DETAIL matters.
And everything on that plane is a detail item.
Curious... Mark does not make as many video's (obviously) but he is concurrently building a new cub as well as Jason Sneed all in the same hanger complex... So three new planes all being build simultaneously in the same hanger..

Guess Jason and Mark's will be a presentation more than a build log...
