      Feast on this: Electromechanically actuated landing gear coming up! Lighter and more reliable than hydraulics! Bubble canopy coming too!

      Thanks - but what is their maximum allowable speed for their ultralight aircraft category? Do they not have an upper limit, like FAA...

      So what aircraft category would SF-1 Archon fall under, according to Transport Canada regulations? And what about SF-2T ? And what...

      Here's a Greek site that had some drawings of SF-1 Archon...

      Where on the aircraft would you position a ballistic parachute, if one were so desired? Since it's a pusher prop design, should the...

      What about putting small canards near the front, just behind the nose? That could give more of a Eurofighter look cosmetically, and...

      VGs means what? Vertical Gyros? Vortex Generators? Since Archon effectively has a double wing (ie. lower part of the "intake"), then...

      Okay, fair enough -- the Archon's light weight gives it less momentum to cancel out, but that light weight also deserves to be exploited...

      I guess there's no chance of doing that on an ultralight - but the braking flap could be used to create lift and lower the stall speed...

      I can see the hydraulic piston on the main nosewheel - but why is it that the rear wheels aren't reliably coming down? Their misbehavior...

      The nosewheel seems to be hydraulic, but the rear ones could be that gravity-cable method you mentioned. To me, that latter idea seems...

      It does have a sort of spartan basic industrial look with all the rivets. And it looks very tesselated, with the simple bends in the...

      Here's an interesting and timely write-up from Dan Johnson which gives a little explanation on the 40 hp...

      sanman replied to the thread Archon from G Aerosports.
      Why use 40hp engine? Just for reduced cost and lower fuel consumption? Or does the lighter 2-stroke help the aircraft meet a weight...

      Scout Aviation, who make paramotor hardware, have recently announced what they see as an innovative propeller design, which they refer...
