The Weedhopper™ 2-Place Plans Package

I am proud to announce the release of the much anticipated Weedhopper™ 2 Place detailed plans package. I have meticulously reproduced each part in a 3D model and created an assembly of the airframe, with hardware. This airframe can be built by nearly anyone with average skills and a minimal amount of tools. This airframe is built from 6061-T6 aluminum tubing. There is only a small amount of welding required on the 4130 Chromoly Nose fork. The only machining required is on the aluminum saddle blocks. Everything else is cut, bent and drilled.

There are no other plans out there with the level detail found in these plans. Those of you who have purchased my Model 40 plans quickly realized the amount of work that went into producing these plans. Nearly every sale of the Model 40 plans has returned compliments on the level of detail in my work. I am not just saying this, my work speaks for itself.
You will not be disappointed in your purchase!!
