What about an ultralight?

Post by Brian Amato »

OK...here's the deal. Realizing I don't have enough lifetime or wherewithal left to finish this project as an honest to God Aircamper, and since I have these lovely Ribs and Tail Feathers all done, and the aileron horns all fashioned, it occurred to me "maybe I could turn this into an ultralight"
Instead of the Model A, maybe put a Hirth in it or half a VW or the like.
Anybody know of anybody having done that?
I'd try to make it so I could pull a couple pins and fold the wings back and tow it home since I short on a hangar.
Let me hear from you guys out there.
Thanks,
Brian
