    Excellent builder. 6/14/2021

    This plane should be Home Depot Orange.

    Common sense aircraft

    Back in the 70’s there was a small bi plane designed before ultra lights had a designation. It was called a Hovey Wing Ding 2. It was made of door skin, lumber yard fir, 4" reinforced aluminum tubing, blue board foam, and a type of insulation board and piano hinge for the empanage. I owned one. I met Mr. Bob Hovey. He had other designs as well. Google it. Oh yes, the wing ribs were of aluminum..not basic hardware tubing, formed around a wood template and plugged into the spars and the held in place by sewing them to the wing fabric.

    Awesome design !!



  13. LA Prepper on August 17, 2023 at 6:30 pm

    Building planes for 50 years, wow! Iโ€™d love to meet this guy!



  14. Hunter Dunker on August 17, 2023 at 6:30 pm

    Nice job I wanted to build my own airplane since I was 16 ,today am 35 years old I came from a poor family but now since am all grown up, now I can finally start my project, I can’t wait to start ๐Ÿ™‚๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ‘Œ

    I have been in the ultralight aircraft since itโ€™s inception,,,, I would highly recommend using standard aircraft practices and materials,,, this guy says he has 50 yrs experience. The average Joe doesnโ€™t and will end up dead if not extremely careful with what they use and how they build it.

    This is so down to earth. Such an unassuming guy.



  17. JJ on August 17, 2023 at 6:34 pm

    This Fellow is vastly more intelligent than his down home country manner of speaking lets on.

    There are quite a few indications he really understands aircraft design, and carefully calculated flight and landing loads.

    Pretty ingenious.

    This 10hp how can fly.
    I need to build my ownn.
    Any boday can help.
    How and where can i start



  19. JBL on August 17, 2023 at 6:34 pm

    Of course a video of flying with these lawn mower engines remains elusive, lol, and he had to build his own props. However, with his credentials, I’m pretty sure it does. With the exception of the expensive Aerolite 103, it seems that all of the kit planes and plans out there leave it up to the builder to scrounge for an expensive or used, no-longer-in-production engine (i.e. Rotax, which has abandoned the ultralight market). The A-plane seems to be the best bet for an easy build, but you are still left scrounging for a decent engine that will (with the possible exception of the Polini) probably cost more than the complete airframe. I really hope some smart person will come along soon and start mass producing good, inexpensive American made ultralight engines here in the United States for our growing sport. Until then, we will be relying on engines from foreign companies, and that doesn’t always translate to inexpensive (i.e. Hirth). If they can do it, so can we.



  20. Emilio Murillo on August 17, 2023 at 6:37 pm

    Would have been nice to see it fly



  21. Douglas Rodrigues on August 17, 2023 at 6:39 pm

    Somebody is going to try logging multi-engine time with this thing.๐Ÿ˜‚



  22. Charles Wesley on August 17, 2023 at 6:41 pm

    I knew Jack Harper from Herlong Airport . He was pretty sharp. I knew his son too, Both in Aviation.

    EIN TRAUM VIRD VARH



  24. ToyManFlyer1100 on August 17, 2023 at 6:44 pm

    Tell ya’ what ??.. Let’s form a partnership… You fly this weekend… I fly it next weekend… Whadya say ??!!



  25. Douglas Earnest on August 17, 2023 at 6:45 pm

    So it was built entirely from items purchased from Home Depo except for the stuff you couldn’t get at Home Depo — so in that regard it’s amazingly similar to an F-35. Not to take away from this gentleman’s accomplishment, but why does everyone on YouTube feel they need to trick or deceive people about what the video contains when the truth is interesting enough?



  26. Tack on August 17, 2023 at 6:45 pm

    Is it FAA part 103 compliant?



  27. rick burris on August 17, 2023 at 6:45 pm

    Not a part 103 ultralight: twin engines



  28. nick on August 17, 2023 at 6:49 pm

    Thats a 40,000 dollar plane in 2021



  29. LA Prepper on August 17, 2023 at 6:49 pm

    Makes his own propellers! Amazing



  30. Carl B on August 17, 2023 at 6:50 pm

    Don’t laugh too hard, Jack Harper is a renown aircraft designer. This is not his only design.



  31. Jason Blanton on August 17, 2023 at 6:51 pm

    Yeh what ever lol ,i sure didnt see anyone flying it bahahaha



  32. MIGUEL ANGEL GARDUร‘O ECHEVERRIA on August 17, 2023 at 6:52 pm

    Poor man’s flying machine.



  33. JC1966 on August 17, 2023 at 6:54 pm

    Does it fly? I mean anyone can cobble together materials into something that looks like an aircraft, but if it doesn’t fly then it isn’t really an airplane is it?



  34. steze48 on August 17, 2023 at 6:54 pm

    7 years now and no flight video…Too unsafe to fly?



  35. Garage Girls on August 17, 2023 at 6:57 pm

    This would never fly. LMAO



  36. Hellyer David on August 17, 2023 at 7:00 pm

    I want to see him fly it



  37. john gudmundson on August 17, 2023 at 7:01 pm

    are plans available for this?



  38. Jeff Pittel on August 17, 2023 at 7:03 pm

    I’ve always wondered if you could cover a built up structure, like this, with plastic wrap like they use to winterize boats?



  39. muskrat Ondatra on August 17, 2023 at 7:04 pm

    why’d you build it? " nothing to do.." This is always the KEY part in anything, any inventor, has ever made! Nothing to do.. i was bored! thought id make this new invention called a flying bird.. Probably something he write brothers came up with while sitting around drinking beers.. " hey write.. Yeah..? how many beers you gotta drink to think you can make this piece of metal fly?? " I’ll bet you ten beers i can fly that metal! alright your on! and it began.. lol this has been your History lesson from modern people who know nothing ๐Ÿ™‚



  40. ToyManFlyer1100 on August 17, 2023 at 7:05 pm

    Did this contraption ever fly ??!!



  41. John Andersen on August 17, 2023 at 7:05 pm

    Have my doubts folks..cant find a video of this aircraft flying and I suspect that if this plane actually flew it was with two ROTAX 227 (26 hp) "2- stroke" engines that Jack Harper lists as optional engines in his plans brochure. Outside of lift motors for hovercraft, I have never heard of …or seen anyone get airborne with two VERY HEAVY 56 pound "low power to weight ratio" 10 hp 4-stroke lawn mower engines. With all do respect to Jack however, I like the design and am always impressed by these super builders and would suggest readers give him some builders leeway here as while it is fun for Jack to say "I built a plane from HOME DEPOT parts," it detracts from the moment too have a lot of qualifiers such as motors are not from Home Depot, struts are not, etc. I suspect Jack hung the Tecumseh engines on there for the video show as HOME DEPOT sells 10 hp Tecumseh engines, but not the much more expensive ROTAX 227 engines commonly used in ultra light aviation applications. What is pictured in the video with Tecumseh engines is probably just enough thrust to taxi with.

  42. Outlawflyer78 on August 17, 2023 at 7:06 pm

    45 mph with 2, 10hp engines! What’s the useful load? 120 pounds with fuel.



  43. scooter eastman on August 17, 2023 at 7:07 pm

    Rc airplanes flown with spectra radio!



  44. aungsoe minn on August 17, 2023 at 7:08 pm

    Good job your



  45. Pilot 301 on August 17, 2023 at 7:09 pm

    No brakes, but then it probably won’t need them. Chuckle. Nice powerplants! A TWIN! The good engine can take you to the scene of the accident.



  46. Mark Mccastle on August 17, 2023 at 7:10 pm

    Twin drivers have more fun



  47. Bryan Campbell on August 17, 2023 at 7:11 pm

    20hp



  48. 280zjammer on August 17, 2023 at 7:11 pm

    How about a Harbor Freight airplane?
