    spaceship one inspiration

    when i first saw spaceship one i immediately thought that would make an interesting configuration for a pusher design, i.e booms attached to wing tips and horizontal surfaces attached to outboard rather than inboard. I gave it some thought and following is what i arrived at. obviously it will...

    twin boom pusher plans

    yes this is pretty much like what gray is working on now. the only difference being structure is all composite. it is mostly drive shaft concerns that has scared me away. i was thinking of filament wound drive shaft or a aluminun one supported with many bearings between the ends.

    twin boom pusher plans

    this is a catia drawing i made back when i was playing with idea of mid-engine pusher configuration. wings look out of proportion since i was after relatively higher wing loading cruise Cl of 0.4 or so.

    Blackhawk, can you elaborate on design details? structures specifications etc. Canopy looks like cold folded rather than blown.

    twin boom pusher plans

    I fell in love with MiniImp when i first saw it. Those people need to understand that market for single place aircraft is very limited. It's against human nature. One of the most fundemental human instincts is sharing good moments and excitement with a loved one.

    twin boom pusher plans

    well this one is very close to what i am after. but it should naturally follow from conventional wisdom to place horizontal tail above the prop wash as it will generate a low pressure zone thus helping down lift. Placing it in the middle of prop wash is also logical as upwards deflected elevator...

    twin boom pusher plans

    by mid engine i mean gray's project, BD-5 or LH-10 from lh aviaition. My dream plane has unlimited visibility (like a glider or a jet fighter) tandem seating for two. Speed and range is pretty much at the bottom of the wish list. 130 knots is more than enough and i will hardly need more than...

    twin boom pusher plans

    becuase i need a non-canard pusher design that leaves me either twin boom pusher or mid engine pusher. issues with mid engine configuration has scared me away (difficulty with engine installation and cooling, pitch sensitivity). single boom pusher can also do but they are very rare as i can see it.

    are there any plans built twim boom pusher design available to homebuilder? it could be composite or metal.

    i thought you were quoted by jetbeetle. did they give you a timeline for the turbofan engines?
