Weird, maybe try a different browser?
I once rented a house that came with flame decals on the mailbox, but it didn't seem faster than any other mailbox. Flames and a skull on the lawn mower that came with the place. That didn't seem any faster either, but maybe that's because it wasn't a rider and I held it back by not walking fast enough.
Unfortunately, Google Maps doesn't have street views of that address, so I don't know if the flames are still there.
That's for Volksplanes, yet if you stick a VolksWagen sign on it, it would fly even further AND emit much less NOx. Ask Volkswagen if you don't believe it, they will tell you for sure. :gig:
I think that only works for diesels...now where did I put that Junkers Jumo engine?
Now that would be an epic thread, a homebuilt aircraft to use one of the enormous 1300 pound Jumo 205 diesel engines. Do any of them survive?
21st Century Blohm & Voss 222 flying boat???
Vincent "Black Widow" of the air! Just bolt empennage, wings, and gear to the engine, then saddle the engine and ride! Spurs and chaps complete the look.
Sorry VB I needed to correct your statement above.
Wouldn't that be SIX 1300 pound Jumo 205 diesel engines?
Sounds good to me as long as it's a wooden single seater, you might need to fill the sponsons with helium to meet part 103 :gig:
Blimp or Dirigible?

https://spratt103.com/en/home this has been covered elsewhere but to me fits the criteria (whatever they were-I have long forgotten)
Would a Cubstyle bird fit the sit on top movement, and how might it look?
Like this but with a round tail, I would think.
Could work indeed.
One of my favorites is this construction, if could be built like a Savage Cub.
So, what is missing, a lower fuselage tube for the tailcone, and a landing gear with bushwheels like the ones of :
and a tailgroup that resembles a Cub, like the Zlin Savage Bobber or Agilis.
Im wondering how light such a bird could be built with a Polini Thor250 engine in the nose.
The Glider SG38 was ahead of its time, as where many others of similar construction
What about a sit on top with such a fuselage style?
Lovely the tailcone of the second one.
As a taildragger could generate some serious interest, no?!
Instead of building the fuselage 1 Inch wide, building it 3 to 4 in the you can get rid of those cables.
Erkki, what about the Weller Rebell or ULI for you?
Weller ULI NG
