What would the perfect Peanut be like? ... Unusual design? Plenty of wing area? Large tail surfaces? Long fuselage, long landing gear, stable enough to be flown (exact scale), indoors or out! Enter the LANIER PARAPLANE, a design concept that started around 1907 and finalized in the early 60's.
This version was flown as slow as 18-19 mph under complete control. Paraplanes were to be flown from postage stamp airports only 800 ft. from fence to fence. What happened to the Para planes? Who knows? But it makes a great Peanut Scale model!
