Mobius1 (Ireland)
Ultra-Light Aircraft
I called it the Creative Minds X1 and started designing it using a computer 3D Design Tool.

The original idea was for an ultra light aircraft powered by a very small and relatively cheap engine such as a motorcycle engine or (as many suggested) a big chainsaw engine.

I wanted the wings to be foldable/detachable so that it could fit onto a large trailer. I wanted the bodywork to be made mostly of moulded plastics, this turned out to be an extreamly expensive task. Sheet aluminium is probably a better idea.

Im posting it here simply because it might inspire somebody who has the money, the talent, the will - to go and try it. I believe I had the talent, and the will. I didnt have the money, the space or the contacts.

If you have any questions concerning original measurement ideas etc - please feel free to ask!

Reward: I would like its name to remain as Creative Minds X1 and I want to be recognized as the original designer.
