Motor Blanik - Version 2

 

Another Bert Persson masterpiece from years gone by ...

  

   

           In gliding mode with prop feathered.

   

 The cowl was opened during engine run and closed on shut down.

   

 

Digital video wasn't around in those days! The configuration shown wasn't too bad. However, imagine a wing-tip mount of the camera counter-balanced by a weight slung under the opposite wing (so as to be out of view) and then doing aerobatics!

   

 

  Bert on the ground with his creation ... 

   

 

 and having some fun with it in the air.
