There's also the Bugatti 100 replica, similar design but the concept has twin engines turning one prop.
Mass distribution-wise, it was a flying barbell. I wonder if they ever spun it. Good thing that it had an ejection seat.
With modern hybrids you could move the cockpit up for much better view, and have the engines mounted rear. Would greatly improve access to the cockpit as well, as you could just have a side door.
Yes, I believe some designs after WWI. I’m thinking some sort of seaplane but I’m not entirely sure. I also know there was some huge multi engine thing that ran two props per engine using belts.Has there ever been a airplane with a fuselage mounted engine driving two or more wing mounted propellers through drive shafts ?
Sort of a mechanical “ blackfly” idea?
