I need this for my son so its still on my list. What is the real shoulder width dimension?
Thanks for the video Matt. Can't wait to be flying in my own. Your door latches are different from what Sisler shows in his plans. Could you post a picture of those? Thanks for linking my build thread.
Oh, yeah, the camera did great...
Love the Cygnet! Doesn't it have kind of a long build time though?
I was very interested in the Cygnet. Good visibility and it seems to be an efficient little airplane. I was able to try one on for size and I don't fit. I am 6'1" with a long torso and the canopy wouldn't come close to closing. We do need the enlarged version!
Yes! Collaborate on a Super Cygnet (100-130 Hp.)..........that would be,,,,,, super!
That's the reputation because of the wings with the lattice and all the small pieces. One guy I talked to took a year and a half to build just the wings and he was very diligent with his time. So far I haven't gotten to work on it like I want due to adding onto my shop which has to be done (my self imposed timetable) before winter. We'll see if the reputation is true. There are a lot of pieces to the wing compared to other designs, but I enjoy the building too.
I will capture a few pictures for you. I believe they are Zigs design he made everthing non structural out of Stainless. i owe Builder Jesse Gage pictures of my cylinder head probes. I added 3 more clip links in the description of my first video.
Once around the patch 0700 today
Loads of fun head to Oshkosh 0600 Friday.
Cygnet is good, but after years it deserve some development (I hope to build one):
- better airfoil, higher placed wing like on MFI9, Bo208, P130
- lower dihedral and sweep
- smaller airfoiled tailplanes
- wider cockpit
- better cockpit cover - windshield
