Hey, Fritz, did you get a new hard drive and get back up and running to finish the VP-2 wing "kit?"
I lost a couple of weeks getting the Wayward Waiex Wonder-boy winging his way westward but I'm back on track. If all goes well I'll start cutting again tonight. ...if the Dodgers are still loosing
Your guest wasn't Benton Harbor (the Wonderful White-Winged Weekend Warrior) was he?
No, it was Timmy the Terrific, tumultuous tempter of trans-gravitational tribulations.
there is a video on YooToob of a French VP-2 flying two-up on a Corvair.
If there's no link then it's not real. ;-)
If he posts a link we'll have to admit the passenger is an 60 pound 9 year old and they're still cramped :gig:
Think of it as the Evans diet...build a VP-2, then lose 50 lbs if you want to take up a passenger. :grin:
Or for the more DIY there's, I know off at least 2 maybe 3 of these in our chapter http://www.hainesengineering.com/rhaines/cnc/cnc_info.htm
Lose a few pounds and a couple inches of width. LOL. Its a nerrow plane
That one looks good but a little 'involved'. There are hundreds of plans on the interweb for cheap (affordable), easy CNC machines. I can't imagine why there's not one in every garage that has a tablesaw.
It ain't pounds that keep a VP-2 from being a two seater, it's inches. 34 inches is 34 inches no matter how much you weigh :gig:
Bud and Bill made it work, so can we!
Lol, that's the same photo I wanted to use to show that you CAN'T fit two people in a VP-2 but I couldn't find it.
you can put two people in a VP-2, just like you can...
...put 17 people in a VW Bug
Theres another pic from Budd's article that shows their shoulders overlapping.
So does this one.
I guess it comes down to picking the right passenger.
Why am I not surprised that this is a French VP-2...? :ban:
C'est Francais, c'est logique!
deleted... (it was just unnecessary personal opinion) :gig:
You're in the hot seat now Fritz, Tim got back home yesterday and the Dodgers !(#*$& tanked it tonight.
I live in the hot seat After I invested 7 hours watching 18 innings in game 3 your Dodgers went and broke my heart last night.
