Thanks for the good feedback guys!

The Floaterline idea is still alive, although other projects have moved in front of it... mainly because of the way gear turns up by various means, urges change, etc etc. But I think Foaterline does need to happen, as much for the "same fuse" ideas that I want to portray... use the same style fuse for a constant chord speedster, and then a gull wing old timer, the low winger floater as in the sketches, etc. So the plans would be of the common same fuse, with each variant having different wing plans and instructions. All named on the theme (Floaterline, Speederline, Sporsterline), and if you managed to build all of them, and cover them in similar fashion, they'd be a family of planes that can exist together and have different characteristics.

I like the ideas... just need the time to do them, like everything. The next on my design board is the "Maelstrom" which I'll put in a blog post about to get feedback there... a design that was kind of born from the Floaterline sketches and me coming by JetScream motor with an Alfa fan.

mental note: remember to check replied to blog postings
