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.

yes i have the real pietenpol plans as well, and the plans to the MiniMax.

I think you are right on it not being much more work to build the real piet, but I am on a budget and the ultra-piet is easier on my budget, mostly since i have an engine available to me for the ragwing.

a lot of the building is similar in both the pietenpol and ultra-piet. I would love to hear from someone who has flown both. I do have a little time in a real Pietenpol.

If I remember correctly, Grant MacLaren has built and flown both an Air Camper and an UltraPiet. However, he seems to have faded from the Piet scene years ago.

little report on how I am doing, I have the rib jig built and awaiting the arrival of the 1/4 by 1/4 sticks it takes to built the ribs. I have one half of the fuselage in the jig and have started glueing.

I'm looking forward to making my first rib on Monday.

cdlwingnut-

I know that the Ragwing was designed around a 28-35 HP engine, but what do you have in mind to power yours with? The Valley Engineering "Big Twin" is way too heavy and too much power. The two-strokes will work, but are you thinking of a two-stroke or something like the 1/2 VW? And by the way, where are you located?

The engine I have is a rotax 503, with is at the upper limit of the 28-48hp but there are a couple of little piets flying with this engine already.

oh and i am located in Iowa so a trip to Brodhead may be in the summer plans this year. though by ground trasportation or a borrowed airplane.

I would recommend that you wait to put the plywood sides on.  There is a lot of work to be done in there and the plywood sides would make things more difficult to get to.
