Roy Nerou does sell the plans, I believe, although he doesn't explicitly say so on his website, and there have been quite a few sets sold by him (look through the Owners & builders link) - I think he may have actually re-drawn them. Explore his website and shoot him an email; I did a few years ago asking him some naive question and he was nice enough to email me back. I don't know how much they would cost though. If I win the powerball, a large portion of it will go to acquiring plans for everything from the Fokker DVII to the Chilton to goodness knows what else...For about the same weight as the vw a suzuki g 10 (3 cylinder) could work. I would love to find a set of plans for this plane.
Why don't you build one then? The plans are online, I just picked them up last night.:lick: If a guy had a Chilton, he could be happy all day long.
hi,+1 on the Suzuki/GEO 3 cylinder inline, with one of the Raven Redrive units I believe it would be a perfect fit in this aircraft, and it would thankfully retain the required Britishness.
There is an absolute and irrefutable English aviation law that says "no Chilton Monoplane shall be equipped with any powerplant that is not inline and inverted, or at the very least inline and possessing a propeller reduction drive that places the thrust line near the top of the front cowling (in such a way that the thrust line is in the equivalent position of an equivalent inverted engine). Further, any attempts to circumvent this law will result in a severe punishment of the perpetrator, such punishment to be administered at the hands of the angry ghost of one Mr. Ranald Porteous."
Due to unanimous agreement by 100% of each and every one of the true aircraft enthusiasts of the world, this law is also considered to be binding in all other countries regrdless of their status as former states within the British Empire.
