Fritz, what kind of tubing had you foreseen for this one?A quick update...
I shortened the fuselage a little to keep the gear from interfering with the pilots feet

Higher parts count than the AP but half the weight. Either tin snips and templates or CNC would be easy enough.

The wing would be tin, I just stuck the ranger wing on to see how things line up. I'm still not sure what motor it needs.

Another great design from the House of Winton.This Winton Gold Coaster is essentially a “Single Tube” aircraft, the fuse tube is a 4”x3” 6061t6 box section kinked up at the spar attachment, and a short vertical post to carry the engine and wing struts, the tube Was joined by tig welding. It is a very simple construction.View attachment 93910
Matthew, you find the coolest little airplanes! I wish the Europeans would have kept up having their light airplane contests so we could see stuff like this fly!
And if the wings shall remain as square and flat as possible, how big shall the vertical separation be?Try toavoid rear wing flying in wash of front wing. Give it same dihedral and anhedral like Quickie or place front wing on top.
If you look at this table of data of the best known flying fleas, you might find i fewtips. ENTREPLAN VERTICAL is the vertical distance. CORD is chord. AILE AVANT is front wing.How big must the vertical separation be?
