Not me. It wouldn't get off the ground with me in it anyway.
Does it come with an ACME batsuit too?
Looks unsafe at any speed to me
I'd probably give it a go. It's a little questionable as presented. It doesn't look overly bad if it's built properly and had the odd modification.
I mean it's not like it's like a mosquito or anything:
I'll stick to stuff made by people my survivors can sue if it breaks
Funny - I have a friend that emailed me a while ago about this. Tell me this is the right attitude for a pilot.
Nick, I expect that this particular attitude, in combination with this type of airplane, will be quickly "self-correcting". Of course, that's not so great for your friend, and I'm sorry about that. . .
I believe in the whole homebuilt concept and don't see a problem with them - but I'm probably too chicken for the whole "lawnchair on a stick" type of airplane!
If your plane is older than 18 years, nobody is suing anybody who made that thing.
Doesn't look all that rickity to me, if properly constructed. I'd give it a go.
That is why you keep putting new stuff on it, so you can sue those guys. For instance I am putting on a new sky-tec starter this weekend. If I were to say have an vacuum failure in IMC and auger on in my survivors will go after Sky-Tec!! I also keep a cup of McDonalds cofee in the cockpit too!
You just should always be prepared!
I was at Accomack Co Airport doing an angel flight and about 12 of this type plane flew in. Looking at the plane and some of the men that came out of them I would say it can carry more then it's weight.
Always keep a spare Parker-Hannifin vacuum pump to throw into the fire, even if you have an all-electric plane. It's evidently easy to find a lawyer who will sue them.
Heh... I know why it's so cheap:
They don't pay their bills!
I know this was built for $8,000.
