    That is way cool! When are you building yours Bill? JoAnn says I’m not allowed ;) Sounds like a challenge…

    That seems impossible to me. Doesn’t the sail need lateral resistance to work? I was waiting to see the bird slip sideways–and then drop–when the wheels lifted off.

    I’ll go with wind powered airplane for $20 Alex. I’m thinking it can be steered by the jib like a south bay scooter with the flaps providing lateral resistance. Bet he said “oh s–t” when it took off!
