Reality depends person himself. There is as much "reality" as people in this world, and in my perspective, you bend laws of physic on your "reality" what come to engine technology, even point where laws of physic disappear. Is this one of your reality or your´s opinion?like to live in a world of reality, but must be starting to look like one!
Engine technology "reality" is here: $5,500 aircraft?
John, your plane design somehow show best or worst of how people are build inside. I think your design looks great, and i hope all good for it. Aviation need people who dear to be different, and future will tell us how great was your approach to this. Keep on going!
Mantra´s like: " it is too difficult" or "it is impossible" is true only for those people who use it...
here) my technical reasonings and those of many others can be found.
The last build update I can find is March '12, 13 months ago... Changed the way of GA? Certainly. Future (truly groundbreaking) projects will be looked upon a bit more cynical/suspicious and many of them are already struggling to find sufficient money...
The Wright brothers dared to challenge conventional wisdom, pursued a dream amidst terrible criticism, and put us on the road to what we have now. Other people did the same in other fields of science and technology. Solving serious problems and giving us many things we take for granted not realizing how we got them. The story of how the cause of Yellow fever was discovered was one occasion where a doctor was finally willing to listen to someone who had been ignored and scoffed at by everyone else because he was an uneducated fool so they thought.
I'd rather have discussions and heated debate over projects that don't defy physics, but do ground-breaking work.
Some more understanding (and less reliance on too simplified ideas) of non-planar wings, normal laminar foils and intersection drag for example.
The early Wright design also resulted in the first U.S. passenger fatality.
I don't think the Wright's would have considered building a five seat airplane as their first design attempt for a new idea concept.
John has his own linguistical manner of stating the true and intuitive in a way that confuses most everyone. I like it, but intriguing riddles and delicate personal descriptions allow me to enter a mindscape more than just plainer perscriptive constructive verbaige. There's a great deal of dilligence behind the boggling briefs, but that's what seperates the succesful eccentrics from creative clutzes. Incidentally there's no intrinsically alternative science, only a technological expression of independently coalessing particularrs.
Still trying to figure out if it's a tailess biplane, wing empannaged monoplane, singularly connected tandum wing, owe well, we can all agree that at least it's a powered glider....
John, if you're looking in, a thought: While I realize the need to recognize contributors, your quietude on actual progress on the aircraft itself can certainly give the wrong impression. A regular progress update, no matter how small, would go a long way towards supporting the PR aspect of your project.
