    There aren't many side-by-side parasol designs out there so I'll just leave this here for inspiration. If anyone has any detailed drawings (even a good 3-view), I'd love to see them.

    Also look at the Corben Junior Ace, a two-seater, sid-by-side version of the Corben Baby Ace.
    Paul Poberezny updated the design with his Pober Junior Ace. Plans are available.

    Funny, I was just thinking about these airplanes the other day and it struck me that Matt would love them.

    Is this a good place to ask: What is the attraction of the parasol layout? Of course, no one needs to (and few can) justify a subjective opinion about the aesthetics of an object, but sometimes it is helpful to read the attempt to do this.
    I disagree strongly with those who frequently laugh at parasol designs and call them " flying piperacks" or "a random draggy collection of wires and struts akin to the post-conflagration Hindenberg at Lakehurst." This is uncharitable and small minded. :)

    To me it is much like a biplane except that you don't have the bottom wings obstructing your view......and who doesn't like biplanes!
