What do you think? I’d love to have this for group flights 🙂

A helicopter had a child with a Jet ski and this was the specimen produced.

A Nice request though!

Weird looking aircraft, but it’s unique and it should be added to IF

Would be awesome. I’ve seen these fly around my town a few times and used to own & fly an RC Micro Icon A-5. The RC version flies great, especially off water.

I love this plane. If I could have a GA aircraft this would be in my top 3. I had a RC Micro one, replica.

It’s certainly a beautiful aircraft and an engineering marvel, but it’s experimental and I don’t believe it should take priority over other GA aircraft.

My apologies. By experimental I meant still in a early stage along with many controversies surrounding the planes production.

I remember this being one of the main aircraft in Microsoft Flight Simulator.
