      ​@Gary Oak it doesn't fly. It falls with style.

      Are these like some sort of intetesting millionaires because it cant be cheap to build this just to crash.

      @VerMirror I said no such thing. You don't need an engine for it to get lift. . . Or explain your sarcasm

    With a 20 HP engine and some control surfaces that would probably fly fairly well

      Ibex Month ago +2

      @RaggedsEdge yeah like their descent into water. Not sure what rules are but they looked like they did what they could on the level of the platform. So cool how they transferred the slower heavy cradle and leveraged that into higher velocity sling of the aircraft. I was so impressed

    • RaggedsEdge
      RaggedsEdge Month ago +3

      I was just thinking if they could somehow impart the energy of the jumpers to the aircraft with some rope and pulleys, that would be cool.

    that launch mechanism was genius. using the stored energy in the cart to pull the plane with the high friction wheels is super efficient

    Adjust your horizontal stabilizer about 15° and you would fly a lot farther.
