I was looking for interesting aviation history videos on YouTube, and came across this one.

My favorite was the one with the round wing. I'd like to try that one, one of these days.



Very cool video! Have you found part 2? Them's some ugly airplanes!

"It's quite possible the ground rejected them." Now That's funny!

That flying barrel would make a very cool model. Around 3:25 of the first video posted in this thread. When I learn enough to design my own scratch builds I might have to come back to that one. Sure to catch the eye at the club.

I loved the olden days where no one seemed to really know about flight but they were willing to give it a go and risk their lives. so much inovation and variation. I love it.
