Brian,
The Chimera is a prototype
I have built at this date, only 2 Chimeras
If the tests are successful and if this model is desired, then , those who wish a Chimera can get one
For background, here is why the Chimera was born:

There was a year, I had to do an exchange, for my collection , with Lifeisgood : S.Kinkade's Slow
Hopper against seagulls R / C.
http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=2015572
At the last moment,the package, finished, ready to be sent, Lifeisgood changed his mind.
http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showp...2&postcount=12
It was his absolute right.
I announced that I will make my own Slow Hopper , with 4 wings .
http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showp...4&postcount=24
Just a matter of time because because I had experience of this kind of machine with several wing
I had already realized the" Phenix "
Phenix2005.mpg (1 min 17 sec)

and the "Meganeura"
ORNITHOPTER (0 min 31 sec)

It's done with " the Chimera"
Today I have to thank Lifeisgood : there are 2 happy ornithopterists
Him, because he kept the Sean Kinkade's Slow Whooper and me because I created my own
"Chimera" .

Sam,
Thank you for the encouragement

Totally agree with you.
The beautiful flight of the Slow Whopper prompted me to make the Chimera;-))
