yes this was a name for a bird, which evolved into the later ZJ-Viera, a nifty little composite ultralight, I believe no longer in production today, but could be wrong too.

But what did caught my attention, was the POC, why, because of its simplicity of construction, mainly two big diameter Aluminium tubing.3DCEC8A5-AED8-45AE-8F5E-58D943D663DA.jpegD24A929B-B69E-4D5D-A8D3-070835926582.jpeg
The Aluminium prototype or proof of concept bird, would give a perfect base for an Homebuilt variant of it.

way back there was a similar bird on the cooker

The sitting position of the POC and its construction pleases but I’d like to see the tailvolume and wings layout of the Penetrater.

how could detachable wings be attached to a single boom fuselage?

The POC, did separate the tailboom from the wings by removing two screws.

See Spratt 103! Make it a free wing posibly with pendulum pilot support.
