    Francis Donaldson's thoughts on Evans Volksplane VP-2

    What the world needs is a metal VP-2 with staggered seats to hold two "average" Americans. Fritz, have you gotten to where you can think of something then sit at the computer do an illustration? You create some great pictures. Thanks!

    Turner TSW-2 "Two-Seat Wot"

    There isn't much "stretch" in the original Wot. LOL Given the average U.S. size and weight the original would be able to handle three quarters of a pilot.

    Minimax wing load spreadsheet

    Buy Hiscock's book so you can write in it. He has so much info that you will want write comments in the margins. Look around. Hopefully you can find one cheaper than DarCorp.
