Sorry, but it isn't.

Is there any flight test report on the Tuscar? I wonder about its inherent flight stability. Normaly tailless aircraft or flying wings need a significant wash-out on the tips, or an s-shaped airfoil to compensate the nose-up moment, but neither is visible in the side view. Has anybody an idea on the flight stability?

That would be the Haacke HFM-2 air-cooled flat twin engine, 22 kW (30 hp) and fitted to the Dzialowski D.K.D.1 aircraft from Poland.

MReyn gets it with the Dzialwski DKD-1.

Over to you.

It was the Driggs Card Model 2. You have control.

Lovely word to say; sesquiplane.

Ah! Yes! Of course! A 1922 Phutney-Creech T Mk IV Aerial Land Yacht!

I never fail to be amazed at the insanely esoteric knowledge of some of the posters here. The last half dozen types I've never heard of and I thought I was a bit of an anorak...

Oh well, back to obscurity!

keep 'em coming!

Here is one more for Eager Mel.
Dust off your anorak and give it a try.

I will see if I can find some more flattering pictures.

I know that I said that I wouldn't play any more but I have always had a soft spot for the De Schelde Scheldemusch and Scheldemeeuw and I think, SLB, your photograph is of the latter.

MReyn24050 17th Mar 2020 14:50

Interesting. Is it a flying boat/seaplane? The helmet the pilot is wearing looks like that worn by German Fighter Pilots WW1. The guy at the back thinking "Don't say he has lost the p-tube again.

I have to say I like that a lot: it looks well-made and has a great deal of charm. No idea what it is but can't wait to find out!
