    Yes, it is that effect which is necessary...


    "additional safety at small height of flight"


    If it is possible, tell in more detail about your flying car?

    Yes, but not on HBA. Read the Synergy posts to understand why. It is in concept stage.

    The delta has to have a leading edge of 60 degrees so that vortex lift can be maintained. Your pictures all have much to LITTLE sweep.

    As for the box? NO way. Go vertical, then give me a call after you get done dropping from the parachute. If the rear wing stalls, such as doing a vertical stunt to zero speed (hammer head, for example), you may not recover. A quickie had this problem. Very dangerous.

    Woops, you are not allow to comment on this airplane per request of owner.

    The add on will not work with his concept. Also, you cannot see down with the lower surface. Seeing down is more important than up.

    By the way, I was in Leningrad in 1986.

    I don't know why but this thing smacks of Buck Rogers movies to me. Not the plane but the picture. Has that sort of 60s special effects vibe.

    Identical? No. On is a delta and one is a delta with a square wing placed behind the AC that pivots. As for WIG? You be the judge.

    I forgot, if Boeing does it, it is right. Got it. Dang I keep forgetting that. Gee I wonder what would happen when that rear wing stalled? Well that would depend...on lots of things. I would make sure I had an eject putton next to me.

    Look somewhat like it but the AC of the center is BEHIND the AC of the wing. The Sea-Era has the delta AC FORWARD of the wing, NOT behind. Looks cool though. The Sea-Era is not the end all. I don't use it now.

    Qxev,

    What are trying to do? Maybe I can help with respect to the Sea-Era. Ask a question. Use the Google translator for Russian to English...
