It weighed the same, but damn it was brittle. Lets not talk about the Chuckbird or the 84 cu in genset motor ....or for that matter a Hummelbird Once had an Airforce General tell me the only thing missing on that thing is 6 handles on the sides.

Not knowing what the propulsion is for this project, I can't say it'll fly or not but,
It would most surely make a fine floating platform. Add oars and paddle away......
Isn't it strange that after a bombing, everyone blames the bomber, his upbringing, his environment, his culture, his mental state but … after a shooting, the problem is the gun.... Open your frigg'n minds, think about all the other tools that can be made into WMDs.
I sincerely hope that life is never discovered on another planet because, sure as hell Progressives and Socialists will want to send them money.
Pretty sure even an ultralight needs an airfoil shaped wing. Dont think a flat sheet of styrofoam with wood and aluminum structure works. May work on model planes that are way over powered. I doubt this ever gets off the ground if it even moves at all under its own power. I think their just building a cute little toy airplane to drive around in parades. If by some freak chance it DOES get airborne, you couldnt get me in it.

Get anything moving fast enough and it will fly. (Both the F-4 and the F117 proved that.) But controlling that flight is another matter. At subsonic speeds a flat-plane wing is certain to have a very poor lift-to-drag ratio and terrible stall characteristics.
