Builder Tip #36 from HomebuiltHELP 
Is your Hand an Accurate Torque Wrench?

As builders we install quite a few nuts and bolts and then usually tighten them simply by "feel". How accurate is this method? Can you train your hand to feel the correct torque by practicing?

This Tip of the Week explores a challenge you can impose upon your builder friends to evaluate their ability to achieve proper torque when confronted with a tightening exercise. Learn how close (or not!) you are to achieving the proper torque for an AN3 and AN4 bolt!

Brand New DVD title from HomebuiltHELP!

How we Built our Belite UltraCub
HomebuiltHelp has just released a new DVD series on the Belite Ultralight kit: the UltraCub. The first title in the series demonstrates building the aluminum cabin used in both the UltraCub and the ProCub models. 

This marks the first ultralight kit we have put to film in our library of how-to builds. Ultralights, in general, provide a unique freedom to build and fly under US FAA regulations. They require no registration after construction is complete and also require no pilots license to fly! It is an inexpensive and hassle free way to get flying!

Belite has engineered a sophisticated set of ultralights in kit form that make building an affordable airplane possible. We have added to that formula by making the building process fast and easy by providing an affordable how-to video.

Purchase this first in the series DVD to learn how easy it is build an aircraft and get flying - safe and affordable!  This might be something you've been waiting for!
