    Antonov 181

    I'm glad having info about the Antonov 'Izdelie', no idea it had tethered flights, as the P Moeller m200 '1988: Manned test flight of a flying car' video, and other of his machines. There is a NACA Research Memorandum, NACA RM L53A09, about Langley full scale wind tunnel tests of Custer Channel...

    What do you think about "e-soaring"?

    I'm not that sure microwave beams are not available today as energy transfer way. Do it have any resemblance to the electric teethbrushes charged by putting it on a nail in a base? See, eg.: 'Wireless energy transfer', 2010: Wireless Energy Transfer...

    B&S 49-series (810cm3/49ci) for aircraft use - TiPi's Q&A thread

    I was delighted thinking B&S meant the Barr&Stroud Sleeve-valve, Burt-McCollum type, not Knight, motorcycle engine, but it was not. One of it was offered in eBay in around $2600, or $3600, not long ago. Blessings +

    For sure your intimate would like this song by Slade AxterAerospace in Madrid produced a 40 KW or a bit more electric engine to be installed in the propeller bushing, as aid in takeoff and climbing, emergency power. Able to work as sole power source? Blessings +

    cheap engine and prop ideas

    Even if I don't fly, and I don't build, I've collecting info abut this. Perhaps you may find cheap 2-Stroke engines in eBay and other sites, but a 2-Stroke engine, also torsional vibrations and other issues, killed the BD-5 and some pilots. 2-Strokes go seized, or have the plug fouled much more...

    Very low aspect ratio planes?

    Pinterest is a time wasting site, as it doesn't distinguish between delusions, concepts, plans, aeromodels, prototypes, or production machines. Terrible!
