Based on the successful Revtech Renegade developed by Owen Ellis, the PMR1 is a full foam composite craft that any craftsman can make.

The construction techniques are simple and don’t require any special technical skills.

Build the PMR1

The ‘plans’ consist of:

  • a license to build,
  • several packages of drawings, plan sheets and templates,
  • access to all the build instructions, videos and 3D models, and
  • inclusion in the build community.

Because we know that self builders add their touch to each craft built to plans, the design is flexible.

The templates package consists of ten full size template drawings with all the panels laid out ready to cut. The functional elements of the hull are roughly grouped allowing for personal options of the duct and seat.

There is no measuring out – no mistakes to be made. Just print and apply to your sheets as a cutting template

Build support

PMR1 is offered as a fully online plan set. We make use of the latest web technologies to give you deep insight to what you are making. The instructions incorporate drill down views, videos and photos to ensure that you are in complete control of your build.
