MakerPlane: The World’s First Open Source Airplane on Indiegogo

It’s one thing to build a soapbox car in your backyard, but what about building your own plane? The engineers at MakerPlane hope to raise $75,000 on IndieGogo to finance the building of MakerPlane, an open source aviation project that would allow people to build their own planes using CNC mills and 3D printers.

The money would allow the organization to build an aircraft and then provide free open source plans, build instructions and electronic files to the public. Here is more about the project: “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!”
