Original Weedhopper Plans


_______________________________________________

 

Weedhopper (tm) C model+ Model 40 Dimensional drawings on CD! First time available! Digitally verified by 3D programming!

Original Weedhopper factory dimensional drawings, new! on PDF! (8x11) from “Weedhopper (tm)". (long since out of business-circa 2001).The only drawings authorized by WEEDHOPPER (tm) !!!

These drawings(approx 75) were only offered to dealer's in the 80's, I believe! They were never available to the general flying public, to my knowledge! I've recently acquired a set of these diagrams which outline all the WH "C"model necessary parts..If you are scratch building a legal 103 Weedhopper you need a set of these drawings! We have checked dimensions as to fitment issues etc..They are great! I have personnally built my last 3 weedhoppers from these plans! They are now on Adobe PDF format files for EZ printing either at home or your local print shop! 3 of my personal Hoppers are depicted in the pics!

When properly built, the Weedhopper style UL, will weigh below a legal 254lbs and be compliant with FAR 103….No registration and licensing headaches!

The WH style UL is legal 103 compliant when built to plans and, in my opinion, one of the easiest designs to get started in flying with! I've owned a number of them! I've really have learned to love 'em!

A great way to fly inexpensively! Questions? Email me! I’ll answer them!
