The "long range halfman scout " will be a flyer similar to Otto Lilienthals flying machine launched from a catapult.

like this more or less:

Very cool!

I like the concept a lot. Will there be cowhide or goat skin wings etc?

A propeller would be nice I reckon. But then you'd need a bicycle setup to power it I guess.

So today I started building ,too. First I cut out the wings of a Otto Lilienthal flying machine plan I had reduced to the right size:



Then I drew them onto Styrodur. I cut out a 2mm thick sheet for this :



Then I glued spares made from toothpicks to the underside of the wings:



Here you see how thin the wings are:



Here is the pilot. He needs googles and another helmet of course . Will be done in green stuff



That is how fare I came today

A great start - looks like it would fly (or glide) in real life.

It would be light enough to glide I suppose maybe you have to leave the pilot out.
