Builder Tip #83 from HomebuiltHELP 
Why Build an Experimental Aircraft?
Better than a factory built model?
The aircraft that best meets your needs may be the one that you build yourself!
The question occasionally arises regarding why people would spend the time to build an aircraft when there are factory built models available in the marketplace (both new and used).

There are the obvious reasons of simply enjoying the build process and the challenge of completing such a large scale undertaking. But beyond these reasons lies the potential to create a one of a kind aircraft with features, capabilities and looks that could never be had in a conventional certified aircraft. Choice of avionics and ergonomic designs that custom fit the needs of the pilot is at the heart of the benefits of building an experimental aircraft.

Watch this week's video to see how an award winning builder chose to modify a well established homebuilt design to come up with a beautiful looking and custom fit aircraft!
