UPDATE: Home Made Electric Plane Really Flies!!!!

A big hat tip goes out to Draculya for this submission

Peter Sripol is something of a legend in the DIY RC aircraft crowd. He’s friends with Flite Test, and there he built an enormous RC cargo plane that could easily carry a small child aloft. Now, Peter has built an ultralight — a manned ultralight — in his basement.

It’s made out of insulation foam. You can see the extremely interesting original post and ‘building of’ video here: Building An Ultralight From Foam In A Basement

Well now he has really amped it up and is actuallyy test flying this contraption. He is braver than most sane men.

Thanks for the update Drac.
P.S. The submission button is working again . You can see it on the menu after you are logged in.
P.S.S. We are still tweaking the site. Some things are still wonky, but we are working on them. Having only one IT dude (thanks EE) makes fixes slow. Any input, likes or dislikes can be fixed or addressed, if anyone would like to let us know about issues we might not be seeing.
P.S.S.S. We had to change themes. The old one was doing things on it’s own. It had basically become sentient and was changing formats and plug ins at will. I am sure everyone noticed the menu moving around by itself and changing colors the last few days before the change.
I could give you a list of crazy shit it was doing behind the scenes… CRAZY. We were worried, that one day we would wake up and the site would be gone if we didn’t get a supported theme.

Hey Cat…You’re doing a great job! Things look great so far with much more to come. Change takes time and it will be worth it when it is all done. Thanks for understanding my limitations and lack of speed. 🙂

A separate comment area would be nice if and when you get 5 minutes.

Hey ZBD ….What do you mean by a separate comment area”? I can’t figure it out. Can you explain in more detail what you are looking for? Thanks

Like a separate chat area we can comment in other than one of these posts. Not that I have anything to say mind you.
