AW52 seems to be able to use flaps on it !?
Mike tells a bit about Draco:
Mike tells a bit about putting a 780 cubic inch Lycoming into a Carbon Cub.
Not homebuilt...but interesting flying...SPACEPLANES:
No other sound on earth like this! V12 vs radial!
Take this camper on your next camping trip to Oshkosh and make an impression...
and enjoy all the comforts of having a mini machine shop away from home.
It's OK if you've got a Staggerwing, but what if you've got a WWI replica? Here's another approach.....
Ron is that for real ?

Some great experimental airplane footage, including Briggs powered Davis DA-11 and many others.
The snow cruiser was a complete disaster
Designed by someone with no clue about its actual mission.
It got stuck on ice as soon as driven and had no chance of crossing a clump of ice, and never could cross a ditch, forget about a crevasse.
The Ww1 tank was brilliant at its job and the tank had only just been invented.
At least the tank mounted airplane would get to its runway. Note they never bothered trying. Why would you?
We can build it ...
They also had to chop tail off of it to get it fit into a boat.
Isaac Arthur about spaceplanes:
I don't think the Snow Cruiser or the WW1 Tank could get enough speed for the aircraft to launch! LOL

Would you call it a head wind ?
re: Warbid from Scratch
What would merit calling a plane a warbird? Just mount a weapon on it? Or does it actually have to have been in a war? Or made for war? Or just look some other plane that was built that may or may not have been made for war? Pshaw... on that scratch built "warbird".
If I put a slingshot on my glider, is it a war bird? How about a gummi bear cannon? Drop a brick from it? Water balloon?
If I mount tubes for electronically fired Estes dumb rockets on my struts, do I get to park my $38 stealth butcher bird in the warbird section? Because I'm so gonna do it... between a $120,000 Spitfire and a $12 million A-10.
How about if it's a weapon of propaganda... there's no doubt about that.
Yeah...just practise the war face in front of a mirror.
Is your lawn art really a glider if it doesn’t glide?
