I don’t know where all this will lead. Maybe I’ll end up building and flying a new airplane. Maybe I’ll end up with some interesting wall decorations. All I know is, I feel the need to explore this and see where it goes. Yesterday I ordered a set of plans for a Fisher Celebrity.
I’m already thinking about various modifications… mostly trying to de-drag some of the structure by using streamlined tubing or even wood for struts and such. And I’m keeping an eye out for possible engine choices. I’m kind of torn on the whole electrical system question. part of me says keep it light and simple — no electrical system, no transponder, handheld radio. The other part doesn’t want to have to hand prop the engine.
We’ll just have to see where it goes. Who knows? Maybe I just end up making really cool looking furniture and never finish it.
