FINE PRINT: Your license to build a Chipper from scratch requires substantial skills which falls outside the scope of our ability to support.

Here are some of the many skills which you must be able to scratch build a Chipper:

  • Extract parts from our CAD files and create .DXF and other flat files, allowing the creation of CAD patterns

  • Cut aluminum sheet to exacting dimensions using either maker tools (Shopbots, for example) or conventional tools (bandsaw, for example).

  • Mill 3D aluminum parts (for example, strut / spar attachment fittings) or fabricate suitable steel welded alternatives

  • Source honeycomb aluminum, in addition to conventional aluminum sheets, angles, bars, and so forth

  • You MUST continue to participate in the monthly club for 24 months or pay $478.80 or to receive your license

  • You MUST agree to hold Chipper Aero, Belite harmless for your construction of a Chipper
