My Pinocchio Project.

I will build an airplane like this.

32 meters Wing Span and 32 square meters wing area.

I prefer began with a 1/5 scale model of 6.4 meters wing.

But I do not know the power of the electric motor of the scale model to simulate the power of the real one.

If the real human has 200 Watts !
The 1/5 scale model will have 8 Watt ? (200 / 5 / 5 = 8)

The real airplane weight is 32 kg plus 68 kg for the pilot = 100 kg

The 1/5 scale model will have 100 / 5 / 5 / 5 = 800 grams


Pilot in backward position

Why is the pilot in reversed position?
Is it just a design or there is a purpose for that?
Just curious...
