Attempting to follow the clues above - Michel Colomban's Luciole?
If correct - control should go to you, Bear.

Startling performance from a 24Hp Briggs and Stratton! 90mph cruise, range over 300 miles, airframe weighs just 100Kg dry, 300Kg MAUW.

Bear has control.

Thanks Mel (and Noyade),

This aircraft is not known for its cockpit.

Agreed that's Russian or Soviet bloc.
It's a big heavy single piston I think, An2 era.

I think its the Narushevich OW-1 - a truly weird design

I finished up from "Russian Experimental aircraft" to "cool weird planes" on Google and looked at some seriously odd aircraft on the way............




OH if correct

Indeed the Narushevich OW-1 from Belarus.

It seems this orange one did never fly.
There is a YouTube film with the other one taking off.
Not very convincing.

OH called
May I call UV to come up with something?
You clearly knew.

When I saw the cockpit picture, I immediately imagined this exchange:

Test pilot: “The ailerons are too heavy.”
Designer: “No problem. We’ll make the yoke wider. “

After seeing that monstrosity, I wonder if I was close to the truth! 😂

Hence my remark about it being a 'heavy'.

And what a ghastly looking yoke arrangement with all those cables, pulleys, linkages and such. How clumsy can it get?

Eeeuwww! I feel for the test pilots of that monstrosity.
