    It is astonishing the time folks will put in on free projects like this.

    Looks like they have a way to go but cool stuff.
    I will be at EAA Friday with dozens of home builders they may have feedback on this or even be there.


    MakerPlane Project Overview

    MakerPlane is an open source aviation organization which will enable people to build and fly their own safe, high quality, reasonable cost plane using advanced personal manufacturing equipment such as CNC mills and 3D printers. Our projects include open source avionics software to enable state-of-the-art digital flight instruments and display capabilities.
    Basically we are designing an aircraft that can be built on a computer controlled mill at home, or at a makerspace which is easy to assemble and quick to build. The plans and instructions will be available for free to anyone that wants them! | Open Source Aviation
