You guys are all missing the point. The innovation is it is the first ever aircraft that is more stable inverted. Thus on cross country runs you get a better view and you get a little back traction therapy on the way hanging from the belt.

Why using obsolete VW engine? How many are still available out there?
They're made new in - I think - Brazil. At least four US companies sell them, a typical one, ready to bolt on is around 7K US$, vs around 18K US$ for the Rotax, UL power, Jabiru etc.

But that indeed is the only part of it that makes any sense.

There is one part of the design thought that has some brilliance in it. It is so fugly that your friends wouldn't want to see you anymore. That saves a lot of money from beer, burgers and Hooters...

Ain't slang wonderful? So what does Hooters mean in Holland? And I guess T*ts are little blue birds? :gig:

That is why it is gull wing..it is like a gull when inverted.

When you guys have finished funding this design, I have a bridge for sale- very big, well known and looks like a coat hanger.

Just $1,000,000,000 AUS FOB Sydney- ie in a valuable currency. You remove from Harbour, at your expense. Bargain price- don't delay. We also have a deal on Qantas- just$600 million without Alan Joyce or $100 million with Alan Joyce.

I'll take the bridge, I think I can sell it on to nutty Walt and he can erect it in Arizona next to the old London Bridge (which wasn't the Tower Bridge he thought he'd bought...) but I think the leprachaun has demolished QANTAS beyond repair... from the world's best airline to a travesty in three years, that's a record of some kind I guess

An inverted gull would be a llug.

Well, here in the U.S., it could refer to "little blue birds" (as you so eloquently translated it :gig or to the restaurant chain famous for waitresses in tight, low cut tops.

Would I elaborate to that I'd have the moral duty to afterwards moderate my own post.

I just received a solicitation email telling about a new design and looking for public funding. The link goes to Indiegogo (similar to Kickstart I think), and wants to develop a production facility. The goal... 50 man-hour production time to yield a \$27,000 plane out the door. Hurry, you can be the first to contribute! :gig:

Don't laugh too hard folks. All it would take to get funded (BY US) is that same e-mail ending up in the inbox of the local Democratic Congressman claiming it would study the effects of Gull-mating or something equally as Pelosian.

Solyndra ring any bells?
