    The post has been up long enough to get me thinking. I would like to obtain the drawings of a WACO CG-4 cargo glider and build it with 21st century materials & airfoils. Instead of relying on an old C-47 to drag it into the air, I would go back to the lamp and ask the genie for an upgrade. I'm thinking of a P&W PT-6 mounted on a pylon same as a Lake amphibian. The thought of slope soaring with all the gang aboard tickles me.

    B-36J(III) featherweight.

    Realistically, I'd love to scratch build a Cabin Waco replica, but that probably requires more time than I can spare.

    I am thinking about a fail-safe multi-copter. I have an idea how to do it.
    But might want to work on something more " amazing".

    I would help Peter Plumb with his 0-100 project. See Homebuiltairplanes.com posts.

    Aircraft Design / Aerodynamics / New Technology

    Project financing concepts. Ref: junker.de and indiegogo.com and others.

    Pegasus DP-1 O-100 http://www.homebuiltairplanes.com/fo...ad.php?t=23767

    This project is ready to go and needs funding to continue in the near future.

    I'd make a homebuilt glider and beat Perlan to 100,000 feet.

    No question. I would hire Boeing to build 5 more B-314s!

    I would build a flying version of my 75% P-39 mockup that hangs in my hangar.
