My website started with this section. I guess it is also the largest section of my site.
Here i try to explain why these designs were made this way and ...i try to see if they were improvements or not.
I do not try to list all of the designs in this way of unorthodox thinking. i just let you see enough models so you can understand what is possible in their speciality.
I hope you like this section. Feel free to send extra info about some of the models i talk about.
So you want to fly. But you don't know what type of flying would be best for you. I hope to help you here in that decision.
I give the good and the bad sides of each type of flying. I guide you to other sites where they can help you, once you decided.
Questions about available budget, local weather, available airports, local laws, transport and so much more can help you make to a better choice.
I guide you to secondhand ones too.
WORK IS STILL IN PROGRESS
Choosing your type of aviation is a personal choice. Some tips can help you make that decision.
A few years ago we lost lot of info about rigid wings when Stewart Midwinter's website went offline. It was a great loss. It has been a source of inspiration to me and a good source of info when comparing similar ultralight gliders. I wanted it back. So ...i asked Mr. Midwinter's permission to place it back online. It mainly has the same info, but in a different shape (sorry, my website looks are pre-made).
Feel free to support this section with new info or updates. You can contact me via the contact page. You can send pictures there too. When sending info, please, note where you got that info from.
Thanks in advance.
I hope i help people to get airborne with this overview of more affordable airplanes. Not everybody can afford a Cessna or Piper. ;)
Consider it my gift to the world of aviation. Go see the website mentioned just below. There is the nearly 300 pages book with all the plans.

I intend to commercialize the DragonCub once the prototype proofed its value. It will become a kit.
First i need to tell you that this is my first aluminium construction. So ...if i can do it, so can you.
Once i have my raw materials, i will have most parts laser precut and predrilled.
Each important part will be testloaded to destruction. So ...many video's will have a lot of KABOOM.
Each step of construction will be placed in a video. So, you will have a kind of video-assembly-handbook.
