Anyone here seen this one?
Where's Barnaby when we need him?
I’ve seen (reports of) it. It looks neat, but I find myself wondering about how much of the (angular) shape is driven by function vs appearance. I also wonder about the choice of engine placement/location.
The leading edges look pretty sharp, like they are trying to drive vortex formation.
If it were an unknown entity, I’d have lots of questions, but being designed by Wasabi Racing gives me a little more confidence in the design.
I like it!
Looks like a Dyke Delta and an F-117 had a love-child.
The designer definitely put plenty of thought into this this.
We hope that it flies as good as it looks.
Please keep us posted.
If the designer is out there please let us know how you got the angle for the thrust line. It looks like it runs parallel with the longitudinal axis
I like it. And I love Delta's so... Win!
Wasabi Racing is on site to do the test flying. Elliot posted on it today for doing brake checks and engine runs. We shall see how it works out.
Didn’t I draw that on a pizza box in another thread?
I don't think he designed it, or else he would be able to answer questions without getting permission first.
Love the looks.
Elliot and Justin had zero to do with the design or MFG of this aircraft. They're only there to assist with the flight testing. Just had a discussion with Justin last night about the engine cooling on pushers...
So how do we cool a pusher, ha, ha. We need to know!
Thanks, I missed that fact. I saw their name attached and assumed it was their design.
Not quite a Stealth Fighter, maybe a Stealth Flivver?
The air worthiness certificate was issued four years ago. Has a rotary engine.
Don't know what it's like under the skin, but if you move a Delta's engine to above the rear of the fuselage, and spit the vertical fin into two to clear the prop, you'd pretty much see that image. Without the engine sitting up there and the extra fin, I wouldn't be able to tell the difference.
From that link (upper right), original certification of some sort was 2011. Hard to say if it ever flew?
It is not clear to me what that date indicates. In any event, the project has been around for a few years. I would guess that if it has flown, and flies reasonably well, we would have more information about it.
