According to Eric Clutton, FRED's parasol wing is essentially cantilever. The two inverted V "flying wires" are there to brace against the twisting imparted on the wing/cabane fittings when using the ailerons. Then I stumbled across this photo of Fokker V.40, a one-off prototype sport plane based on the WWI D.VIII fighter with just a 35 hp Anzani engine. That got me thinking about applying this Fokker-style cantilever parasol wing and strut arrangement to a small homebuilt. It seems like a great solution for a small single-seater in which the wing could be built dead straight (no dihedral or sweep) and in one piece. What do you all think...pros, cons, cool, goofy?
