WHAT IS THAT THANG?See the Voisin History link.
WHERE DID YOU GET THE PLANS?
I drew them out myself from 3-views obtained from the internet. I am NOT a professional engineer or draftsman. I am self-taught over the past ten years.
HOW DID YOU BEND THOSE LOWER LONGERONS?
I drew the bend I wanted on my workbench, then marked the tube every 4 inches. Using a cheap store bought pipe bender, I started at the front and worked to the rear, tweaking the bend at every mark and laying it on my workbench drawing to make sure I didn't over bend. It took about a half hour per tube.
WHAT COVERING METHOD ARE YOU USING?
WHAT ENGINE ARE YOU USING?
A 1.0 liter Suzuki engine out of a 1993 Geo Metro automobile. I am using the wiring loom and computer from the vehicle as well.
WHAT REDRIVE ARE YOU USING?
The redrive is made in Russia specifically designed for the engine. Called and SPG-2, more info is available here.
WILL PLANS BE AVAILABLE?
NO! But my constructions drawings and builders notes will be. I will not call them "PLANS" for liability reasons. If you want to use my construction drawings to replicate what I have done, that is entirely your responsibility.
WHO ARE YOU?
I'm Corey Butcher, an optician who just wants to fly. I figured the only way I could afford it was to build my own airplane so I could space the cost over a period of time, pay only for the cost of material, do the maintenance on it when it is airworthy. So, I went all the way and even designed it.
I did go through a full A&P course while in high school back in the early 70's, but never pursued it after graduating. In the mid 90's, the desire to fly resurrected itself, so began the study to build and fly my own creation. Now, a decade later, I am realizing that dream.
