49.5 ft span , 450Lb usable payload ; it's the highest AR Atos glider
ever made .

This one can handle those heavy Rotax engines.

That pilot with the control frame & wires under the wing ; yea
there Gone , and being replaced with a sleek sailplane
looking fuse, with the pilot hidden inside. When done ,the
L/D should go up a Bunch from what it is now (19.5 : 1) , but
the speed i I get it at should go Way up to near VNE.

I'm gonna turn it into an ultralight motor-glider , with a folding prop ; should
be Awesome in the air, and expect many hours of soaring fun !!!!!!!

and had just joined the forum !! :(

But WOW , what a beautiful engine ; new price

sure was Good bate ; to get this fish to look !! LOL

I Didn't buy it.
I was all ready to send the seller money through PayPal
and that is when he indicated that the money was to be
sent Friends and Family, instead of , (goods & services).
I knew it was a SCAM immediately.

Life is still good though --- a friend gave me a 15hp, PPG
engine with prop and reduction ; it will work on the Atos VRX
at Las Vegas altitude , but not at King Mt , 5,500 ASL.

Model airplanes are no longer like they used to be:
...

I desire a 4-stroke, with the power and weight ; 40-hp would
be fine please ! :)

This is Cool :
The 342 that 3W sells ; there use to be a company
that used one like it , for ultralights, and they made
a reduction unit for it .
32hp and 19-lb !
