Default Build your own plan! From the ground up. (Video)

I came across this on YouTube the other day. As I type this I just watched episode 4 where they mounted the wings. Donít know much about the show but seems to have been produced in 2001.

Back then, I recorded the entire series. Very worth while watching. They move fast and don't go into detail.

When the 8 was finished, he built a helicopter..... That was very interesting.

Several years ago, I looked into possibly buying that plane. It was in the shop for an annual and the seller just wanted out. I looked into it and found out it had a history of oil temp issues. That, and a terrible oil analysis, signaled to me that it was time to walk. Found out later that the airplane crashed on landing during a "checkout" with the new owner. Both pilots walked away thankfully.
