Has anybody on /diy/ ever built a kit plane or homebuilt?

I recently learned about the long-EZ, and now I really want to try building one.

You still need a pilot licence and a permission from gov to fly the plane that you build

>>921766
Working on a pilot's license already.

>>921766
No you don't. Please google FAR 103.

>>922630
This can do 200 knots, it weighs 2000 pounds, and carries 56 gallons of fuel.

HOLY I want one. But I have a j-3. It gets me up enough lol

He was the one who had a retarded fuel setup, and wound up standing on the rudder pedal while trying to change the fuel tank.

>FAR 103
long-EZ is way out of spec for that.
>>
>>921423
>look up build times
>even the simplest models take hundreds of hours

I get that planes are complex, but could someone with experience explain the time distribution in building one at home? Is it mostly dealing with a garage setup that isn't as efficient as a specifically optimized factory?

Yes, it was the plane that killed John Denver. So at least it's got that going for it...
