Man,lots of ideas flowing! This GB is great,I enjoy every single topic I read. Keep on the good work,gang! :)
After seeing Bryan Kruger´s flying things I decided to do a quicky ´tape-together-model` to show a new idea for a light aircraft. No name or affiliation yet,since I´d like to see if it looks Ok and hear what you guys think:http://jukabala.tripod.com/id34.html
B&W pics to help the visualization. It´s supposed to be a high wing,two man observation plane.The cockpit is inspired by an airship gondola with large frontal and side windows since I want it to look very fragile, I also plan to attach some insect like antennas in front of it. I plan it to be 1/48 scale,so I want to know:
-the wingspan is too small for low G?
-there should be a bigger engine? Or should it be a glidder??
_there is need for a rudder(s)/stabilizer(s)/other control surfaces?
I didn´t decided how it take off but it will have some kind of landing gear/skids for sure.
Please let me know what you think
