For about a year now, my uncle has been working on this endlessly in his spare time...
















It'* called a SONIX, I think... What he did is he bought a kit that provided all of the aluminium and other things, but he had to bend and cut it and stuff. That was the first time that engine had every been fired up. A leak or two here and there, but that is to expected. If the videos don't work, I'll just give a link to my photobucket account.

LOL! Thats why I asked. I looked at it and thought, maybe it can fly that that under power, but what if the power gives. Presonally I hate to even fly in a commercial plane. "Only two things fall out of the shy"...
