    Westfall negative stagger biplane

    I discovered Westfall negative stagger biplane in Sport Aviation of october
    and found that this cabin biplane was great, I couldn't resist to draw a
    microlight-LSA variant with a VW 2180 70HP engine
    I took same dimension gap 46" and chord 42".
    Here are some thoughts concerning the biplane with positive and negative
    loads.

    Figures could be divided by 2 with a reducted Rotax engine. Static thrust of VW2180 76HP
    is given by Great Plains builder manual 247lbs that is quite anemic.

    P.S : I use english and french, but in the latter case I think that drawing would help even if you don't know french.
