This aircraft-homebuilt related contents reflects my very private view of things. No one should be encouraged to follow them and I don't take any responsibilities if you may follow them. However there's only one recommendation I'd like to give:
If you intend to deviate in any way from the plans, get the Sonex Inc's blessings and/or consult an professional aviation engineer.
And now don't waste so much time at the internet, better go building/flying ;)
