      Contrary to rumor the Gnat and myself are both still alive :)

      After a few years on hold due to health I have resumed work on the design. Thanks to a HP workstation from NASA (another design award) I now have a 4k Solidworks cad setup which is a incredible improvement from the way I was doing it before. I actually have been able to load the entire air frame instead of a few parts. That has allowed me to see a few places where I need to fix things and the ability to optimize the design.

      I will be adding more here as I go. In the mean time if you have any questions feel free to ask. My Gnat web page is still active so there is still information there as well. That will get updated/refreshed as I go (but not high on to-do list to be honest lol)

      Thanks to you guys who kept pestering me about WHEN will it be done lol. It helped.

    If you can remember back a few ice ages to when the Gnat was last active...

    Some of the changes in the works:

    -lighter air frame - The original air frame used a mix of materials but mainly 6061. This is still the case but I am reworking the design to use lighter gauges.
    I used to be a unemployable airport bum but they keep offering me work...

    if it flys...

    I like the small low power designs. There is something elegant about them. I think there is basically something wrong with larger pilots as we all seem to want to get into the smallest thing that flies...;-]
