This young aviator has built a plane in his garage from bits of scrap he has collected.
After watching this video i thought ok good on him for doing something constructive instead of running the streets robbing old ladies,At first glance
of his flying machine it doesnt look that airworthy and with a couple of , what looks like whipper snipper motors with some R/C props he will need to
go home to Ethiopia for a crash diet if he has any chance of becoming airborne.
Hard to tell from the video but the aerodynamics look ok but i'm not sure he has the power for the weight. Just hard to tell without seeing it in
person. I'm assuming he did the mathematical work to figure out how much thrust he needs for the lift and if he didn't he must be willing to crash
There's a lot of engineering that goes into getting aircraft to fly efficiently so I have doubts.
Hard to say without a better look at wing design and the power of the engine.
I would say if the craft had an abundance of power, it APPEARS as if this rudimentary craft could achieve lift but not for long. It would be very
stupid to try to fly it if for no other reason than the fact that there are no control surfaces evident (ailerons and the like).
