New centerline twin-engine canard

Recommended Posts

I found this recently, a Defiant-like canard but much smaller.  It looks about the size of a Cozy III, but with a larger canard and with only two 50hp engines.

Under 500kg MTOW. Very light.
The mid-span fence on the winglet is interesting.

Interesting plane indeed.  Lighter than a Cozy, slightly wider cabin, but doesn't look like much storage (?) and a relatively slow canard.  For some that's actually a better setup than the fast approach speeds and long runways canards typically require.

I wonder why they taxi on the grass in their video using the rear engine with the forward engine off?  I would think they'd want to do it the other way around.
