Hey KC, Sounds like the kid is he!! bent on killing himself, I sat him down and had a talk with him, Thats about all I can do.
BUT, I have an idea, I'm gonna build a ultralight aircraft, I got an old weedwhacker engine that kinda runs OK, I have some PVC pipe in the rafters of the shop for the airframe and lots of wood screws to hold it together. and I have some old bed sheets I'm gonna use for wing covers, A little house paint to stiffen up the cloth ought to do it. FAR regulations say I can go up to 10,000 feet in it legally. ADVICE, I dont need no stinking advice. John Denver did it, So can I!!!!!
