Carlos Reyes View <abbr class='timeago' title='2012-03-13 23:28:59Z'>Tuesday, March 13th, 2012 05:28 pm GMT -7</abbr> It’s a full size airplane. The guy is building it in his garage from stuff he bought in Home Depot. Pretty resourceful, if you ask me.

He could take it one step further and run some simulations before flying it. Dennis View <abbr class='timeago' title='2012-07-06 19:53:43Z'>Friday, July 6th, 2012 01:53 pm GMT -7</abbr> If it gets off the ground, it will be a short flight to the crash site. If he gets the FAA to inspect it prior to flight (as required by law), there won’t be a crash, because they would never sign it off as airworthy.

Andy View <abbr class='timeago' title='2014-01-16 02:21:09Z'>Wednesday, January 15th, 2014 07:21 pm GMT -7</abbr> I submit that this guy doesn’t *really* know what he’s doing, since he’s using Home Depot lumber and not high quality, aircraft-grade plywood. I would barely trust the stuff to make a deck chair, didn’t trust the stuff to make a kayak, and certainly wouldn’t trust it to my life.

Douglas fir, which is common and inexpensive, is very similar to spruce. Lumber yards are full of it. In fact, I know of at least a couple of full-size plans-built airplanes that were designed to be built out of Douglas fir as opposed to aircraft-grade spruce.
