I need you to design and build one of these for a 17 stone fat bastard like me

But I want an undercarriage to land with. No Paraglider for me. I did that 20 years ago and went straight into a farmers barn door. It Hurt.
I have become that which I always despised and feared........Old !

My greatest wish, would be to own my own scrapyard.

Oh beeeeeehave, Chorly! :mrgreen:

I saw a video of this guy awhile back with his first prototype which was a single engine, larger, that was on his back above his wing. His new version looks much nicer, but I wonder how much he weighs with the whole garb on him and fully fueled! :shock: I'm surprised the Swiss CAA lets him fly around, although I am sure they make sure he stays away from populated areas. Our FAA would never let you do this here in LA, but I would love to give one a go.

We might have to mount you in a wind tunnel a couple times during development to figure out your lift to drag ratio... and I have a feeling you may generate a helluva lot more drag than lift just from the weight you've quoted here! :wink:

Rock on,

"Mount me in a wind tunnel" :oops: Oh sir.....I'm in a hot sweat now. :oops: 'A couple of times' You brute !!
:lol:

My wife says I generate enough wind on my own after one of her curry's to supply the local power station.

Wouldn't a Holiday Inn, or a Marriott be more comfortable?

I suppose it's one of those real specific fetishes.....is there a web site?

"I put the 'Grrrrrrr' in 'Swinger' baby, YEAH!"

Can you tell my favorite movies? And as for the curry-induced wind:
