    There is just one video sequence existing of that critter, I'm wondering how such a bird slightly modified would look today?!

    Two things I would change, the pilots position into a supine sitting layout and a tail-dragger configuration.

    How much would such a bird weight?

    A 4 to 5" irrigation tube as a fuselage, it wouldn't get much simpler then this, with a 20hp engine, it would be almost overpowered. ;-)
