This was my entry into the 2011 incarnation of the .org Schneider cup, where contestants were required to design an entry using period technology and complete an actual course from the original race. This aircraft uses only technology that was available in 1919, both construction techniques (wood veneer monocoque - ca 1912), airfoils (symmetrical - ca 1917) and engine (Napier Lion - ca 1919).

It was disqualified in the actual race, as my pilot missed a marker, but it logged speeds faster than any of the other single engined aircraft. With careful piloting and a bit of luck it could potentially have won.
It's very closely coupled, which makes it a bit of a pain to handle in swell. Accelerate slowly, and keep the stick back. On landing, you want to almost stall it into the water - just make sure you're very low if you do, as the stall is quite abrupt, and you will drop a wing!
The external model is a blender .obj, but there is no 3d panel. Pilot by XPFR.
