Homebuilt Helicopter Plans :: LoneStar Helicopter

Kit helicopter plans sale

LoneStar Kit Helicopter Partial Plans*

NOTE: we continue to get people filing Paypal cases if they do not receive their plans immediately.

  • We use a third party system to send out the PIN numbers automatically. That companies software is old and becoming less compatible with new technology.

  • We now have to send most PIN numbers manually which unfortunately takes additional time.

  • There were no other affordable means of distributing the plans securely for a one-man operation.

  • Please be PATIENT as this is a niche hobby site which I run out of a passion for small helicopters.

  • This site is run at a huge loss, even with affiliate advertising, very rare donations and Google advertising.

  • If you are having any issues with the plans, please navigate to the Contact page on this site AND ALLOW US TIME TO RESPOND.

If you are not willing to allow myself a reasonable amount of time to respond, (sometime a few days) – PLEASE DO NOT ORDER THE PLANS!

  1. dear sir.
    I whould like to purche [Homebuilt Helicopter Plans :: LoneStar Helicopter].
    Is this file step files or iges files or x_t files?

    warm regards.

    • Hi Ryo, as per the information on this page, the “partial plans” are in PDF format embedded in an eBook software. You cannot download or print them due to previous copyright problems. It’s unfortunate that there are some who make it difficult for all by doing the wrong thing. Kind regards, Adam

  2. I tried to download the swashplate plans and it did not download..

  3. It’s an assembly manual, Very little useful information for scratch building.

    • Hi Tim, as per the heading on that page “LoneStar Kit Helicopter Partial Plans” and -Owners Manual, -assembly drawings and information package. It continues in the first paragraph, “The new LoneStar kit helicopter plans & information pack contains the swashplate, main rotorshaft, mobility wheels, and fuel tank frame plans, along with parts list and kit information. There is sufficient information to build your own ultralight helicopter, personal helicopter, or experimental helicopter with a little imagination.”

      I believe the description of what is being sold is extremely accurate.
