    In these days of liability and lawsuits, I think an actual Penguin trainer would be a disaster waiting to happen. On the other hand, something like an adult-size toy plane on a gimbal with an...

    It would make a lot more sense to design a new ultralight around a current engine in production. Hirth still makes some small two-strokes as do a few others, but I would come down to the 25-36 hp...

    Frank, I think a lot of the questions you are asking come down to personal preference more than anything else. What construction method appeals to you as a way to pass the time no matter what you...

    Frank, given your expressed preferences, medical questions, and limited building experience, I was going to suggest some of the more ultralight-style (Dacron fabric over aluminum tubes) kits, but...

    Here's an idea, a non-flying plane on gimbal so that you can get a feel for the controls while sitting on the ground. These days you could easily see using an electric motor and rechargeable...

    Just as food for thought here are a couple of photos of a Criquet Leger, one of the designs by the late Emilien Croses, probably the best-known "disciple" of Henri Mignet, who put his own spin on the...

    The powered-wheel version might be a fun go kart but it will lose the ground training aspect without a prop wash to raise the tail or any "torque" to correct with the rudder. You'd end up with a...

    I would definitely *not* recommend a "penguin" aircraft capable of even a short hop, which defeats the whole point of the concept, but I could see the benefit of a low-powered, completely non-flying...

    I think that last line is key. The amount and speed of roll-yaw coupling varies from one two-axis design to another, but thousands of Ercoupe, Sky Pups, Flying Fleas, Quicksilvers, Weedhoppers, etc....
