x-plane

I have been putting sound tracks onto movies that my hubby has made in x-plane.  I particularly like this movie.

The plane is called Taz and was made by an x-planer called Brett Sumpter. The pilot is by Paul Jones aka dad. This is a low tech plane, but I have a page and half of technical information! Here’s a bit of it:

Specs:
Empty weight 450 lbs
Max gross weight 825 lbs
Fuel capacity 12.5 gallons (75 lbs)

Engine – Rotax 912ULS, 100 hp
26′ main rotor, 7′ fixed pitch prop

…. basic tractor autogyro but with a modern lightweight engine – long travel landing gear + low speeds  & lots of power mean you can go almost anywhere that doesn’t require vertical takeoff.

These x-planers really have fun!

Beautiful flying. I thought it was a heli at first. I think you are at St Moritz!
