    Well, if you ever decide that with the fixed gear, you end up making it a pod and boom pusher - a la Strojnik - I would definitely consider helping you build it (though then we'd actually build molds to put it into production!)

    Wow. That's an incredibly generous offer! May I ask what's behind the desire to to a pod-and-boom pusher? I mean, it obviously worked for Strojnik, but I'm curious about your interest.

    While I appreciate the suggestion on the Atos Wing, and I really like that little 'plane, but I'd like to keep this thread focused on my own design. Which needs to have some updates posted, I agree. Thanks.
