All okay in theory, but this is f/f you know. The lightest drift moves them along, so you need a bit of area. Have a 2 inch to the foot Farman Moustique F/F model with a G Mark 2cc twin with a throttle worked by an old Tatone timer and about 15 sec full steam for it to rog and get some height, then on to cruise. You would be surprised how far this thing will go in a minute or so on idle. The idea is great, but a 20 minute flight would go a long way l feel, unless you get 'one of those special days'.
