    Golden age classics in tube and gusset

    I have been thinking for a long time about the same subject that you present here. In my case, make a two-seater LSA, motorizable with a Verner Starlet 5si. Using the system already demonstrated in the Kiebitz biplanes. My best candidates: Gee Bee mod A Monocope 90 Fleet 2

    Tube and fabric microlight?

    Not to be controversial, I understand your thinking on Himax. I consider it very good design and father of the many versions as Ragwing. In 1998 I rebuilt and flew for two years, one Himax with a Rotax 447 engine. I can say that the Himax fly, but you can not compare his flight with what you...
