Here is my Monocoupe Monosport G. I built it 5 years ago as a Culver Dart prototype and reactivated it now as a Monosport G. It has a KFm 2 wing, 1m span.
In fact, the original airplane was designed by Al Mooney for Monocoupe and then sold to Mr Culver in 1937, then named Dart.

Happy New Year!
First 2019 flights were the first and second flight of my Trotteldecker, the biplane version of the Trottel. Seems to have a lot of potential!
