As an aircraft, the current simulator model has a turbofan engine. A ducted propeller test is planned. The turbofan engine provides a simple propulsion model for the current state of the design. A ducted propulsion system prevents the danger of an exposed propeller and allows muffling of the propeller blades.
Top speed is approximately 250 KIAS. Takeoff speed is approximately 100 KIAS and best rate of climb is between 180-200 KIAS. For more information visit -
Pat, who lives in Doylestown, PA. has built two three wheel cars from motorcycles as prototypes and has supplied the following pictures of the second three-wheeler (skinned and not skinned). He travelled 800 miles on it.
Says Pat, "I've convinced myself that using the nose gear in my designs as a single driven wheel, would work for what I have in mind. I do subscribe to the "limited capability road vehicle - good airplane," school of thought.
