I really like it. I looked over the original at Oshkosh extremely long and I walked away with much appreciation. I think it's the simplicity that really pulled at my heart strings or maybe the fact it looks like a model airplane. It's just super cool.Think of it as classic design of the original VW Beetle type. Once you understand why it is is the way it is seems so much more exciting.
I think a Teenie Two would give the VP a good challenge for cheapest homebuilt.Curious if it still lives up to it's name as the most affordable home built.
I use to hate this design, thought it was the ugliest airplane ever.
Then I saw the original at Oshkosh last year and fell in love with it. It really grows on you. I bet it's absolutely a blast to fly.
I think most folks use domestic Birch for the 1/16" and 1/8". For the ribs, whatever 1/4" exterior ply looks good at local lumber yard. A half sheet of good 1/4" ply for the bulkheads is probably worth it.What plywood options are guys building these with in modern times? How many sheets at what thickness does it take?
