Looks great and should be a real screamer with 2 x 120hp Corvairs, I look forward to hearing more as you make progress. I wold be nice to learn more about your design process as well and the many modifications it took to bring this design to life. Cheers, Matthew

A very interesting project, it reminded me of the Wing Derringer.
I have to ask, do you have enough vertical tail volume to handle an engine failure?
Yes, my calculated Vmc is 82kts. at sea level. My Vmc testing at altitude should confirm this. I plan on operating this aircraft on 3,500'+ runways and treating the aircraft as a single engine below Vmc. Any engine issues below Vmc, both engines to idle and land straight ahead.
