Looks good overall, your work always looks great, but that top stringer could go right through your forehead in a crash, and all of them are heavier than they need to be, I think. Might want to re-evaluate that.

Not building one, but I do have a set of plans! Very nice airplane, but when I studied the plans it seemed like just as much work to build one as to build a full-size Air Camper.


Agree, why not build the real thing? Small difference in the cost of building materials, but the big thing is builder support from forums like this and the Brodhead weekend, especially if you are a first time builder. (And you end up with a 2 seater).

The fuselage is varnished and it is officially sitting on its landing gear.

As far as why the little piet and not a full piet I answered that a while back but mainly because i found a supply of 3/4" thick douglas fir and had an engine already for it.

Why are you trying to justify your decision? The best reason ever is cuz that’s what I want to build. That was my first build. My main reason was quite similar to yours plus back then, Roger Mann had a mod available for folding wings without having to disconnect control cables. Only the cross over cable was unhooked(quick disconnect) if I remember right. Quite a bit of airplane for a Nevada(20#heavy) ultra lite

working on cutting and installing the aileron hinges.
I also clamped the tail feathers to the fuselage to see what they looked like and to get them out of the way

Hi Lee; just a comment; your wood work looks really good, but to save you some time in covering you might want to round off the corners of the tail surfaces. Those sharp corners are tough to cover and make nice looking. I had the only bad time covering my Piet with corners that looked just like yours. Sincerely, Jim
