Is it possible to shrink a set of long ez plans to a single seat so you could use a engine set up like the french cri cri but as pushers? Or even a small briggs n stratton?

Sort of like this, or did you have something bigger in mind?



Seriously, it's certainly possible but you'd be the first, AFAIK. It's tricky, I hear, to just scale down an airplane--something to do with Reynolds Number. Also stuff like control sticks, rudder pedals, and fuel switches are what they are, and have to be kept about the same size. If you want a tiny airplane look at the Hummelbird, Quickie, KR-2. ;-)
