    Weird Fords...

    Didn't want to dig up an old Weird planes thread. This documentary mentions a couple of other Ford designs (Stout designs) that seem to have been completely forgotten. A tandem wing, twin engine amphibian (never flew), and a flying wing... Skip to 30:45 and they both go by fast. Not...

    Another electric Cri-Cri - or at least a composite derivative.

    ​A new one on me, as far as projects to follow. Haven't seen this one in development until the Tube suggested this video. Posting as a curiosity, in case the composite guys haven't seen it. Another electrified Cri-Cri - though Not. An all composite Cri-Cri-inspired design, with an...

    Site down?

    FYI: Wasn't able to access the page until just now... I'm on the site 4-5 times a day. Got "Unavailable" on every try for last 2.5 days. Every other site is fine. Something must have changed, because I accessed it just now. Figured mods would want to know it was Unavailable/Timeout for a...

    Composite fuse...out of two canoes... Ayup...

    Seems like this fits with the posts about composite derivatives of Volksplanes. At 3:55 they claim the little yellow bird was made out of 2 canoes.

    Rough landing.

    Popped up online the other day. Watch for the Dyn-Aero on final @ 1:50. Returns to field due to an unintentionally open canopy. Looks like they come up short in the long grass or brush, then unicycle on the nose gear. Looks like only pride is injured (I hope.) Hooray for the slow speeds...

    Polaris ProStar Engines? 45hp.

    Well if Rotax came out of the snowmobiles... ...can a Polaris Prostar from an ATV be next? Anyone playing with one yet? I searched the forums but didn't find a reference. They come 32-100 hp. The 570cc/45hp seems like it could be a 1/2 VW alternative (pertinent to some of my design ideas.)...

    No electrical system, How do you install an Aux Power Port for GPS?

    Sorry if this is such a rudimentary question. I've seen vintage aircraft with no electrical system have a portable GPS. Is this running on internal battery? Is it possible to have an auxiliary power port in the panel for accessories like GPS? Would a car charger/cigarette lighter power port...

    Quicksilver ceases production...

    Venerable design in flux. Quicksilver Aircraft Ceases Production | Flying Magazine Dan Johnson's site makes it sound like it's unlikely to disappear completely, just ceasing as a centralized operation. They'll outsource the production of replacement parts to third parties, and if that...

    **** Shame...(Collings Foundation Grounded)

    Harper lil breezy wing?

    Do pictures exist (internet search proved fruitless) of the uncovered wing structure of the Harper Lil Breezy? It appears to be a traditionally covered Cub-Like-Wing...but I note only one wing strut at approximately 25% chord and extending only short distance spanwise. Is it an aluminium...

    John Deere, 3 Cylinder, 50 HP?

    Hypothetical Aircraft Reprise - Carrera.

    I'm playing the mind game of trying to mentally optimize an older design...(perhaps violating the "if it ain't broke" rule). Please let me collect some thoughts on the Carrera. Could it be significantly improved with some mods? The Carrera was the land version of the Aventura line of...

    Any friends in Argentina? Familiar with the BA-5 Gurí?

    Does the board have any friends in Argentina? Is anyone familiar with the BA-5 Gurí? Their website appears to have not been updated in quite a while, making me wonder if the project is dead. I'd love to find updated information, perhaps flight video, of this project. Remarkably little...
