Hi Warhead,

It's not mine. It belongs to someone in Switzerland I think. He has a website - I haven't been there in a while. I asked him a while back if he had plans and he said no it's not ready yet...

I sure would like to try it!

Here's a link to his site:

Cheers!

I like the concept. I'm not sure the canards and attached sponsons are necessary, perhaps even detrimental as they disrupt airflow into the prop and under the main wing. And I never saw the sponsons touch the water... so they don't seem necessary at all. It looks like it's all controlled with elevons. With rudders, he probably would not need anhedral in the wing... and it would be much more stable for cruising. I might have to build my own and experiment the the layout a bit. Looks like a great plane for throwing in the trunk... very compact and it could be a great FPV platform.
