    The folding wings do nothing for me...

    Holy crap I want one though. :thumbsup:

    I had a Byron Corsair way back in the 80s with the three section split flaps. So cool. :biggrin:

    With you on that Dean. I wouldn't want the complication of the folding wings. Too terrified it might fold in flight. Just the gull wing shape and radial sound would do me fine.
