4 seater twin whisper

Post by whisper » Thu May 01, 2008 9:45 pm

Stewart is building a 1/4 scale flying model of his dream machine.....2 pusher engines on pylons above the wing; 12m span; unlimited visibility for 4 occupants .....maybe one day we'll get a real one flying :D

Here it is with pylons attached and cowlings. Looking rather tempting :wink:

Stewart, stop playing with model planes, you have a perfectly good real motor glider to work on!

regards

Tim

(P.S. ... it looks good)

The model is apparently ready to fly and weighs in at 6.4kg. Stewart is giving me the dubious pleasure of performing the test flight. He tells me that if I bend it I get removed from his christmas card list :D
