Peanut Scale

Wingspan 13”

Power Rubber

By WALT MOONEY

  • The WP-l was brought over to the USA by the Wright Aircraft Company for an Army Fighter competition. It was actually a Dornier H, an all-metal Parasol cantilever-wing monoplane with somewhat angular lines. Some years ago the Flight Master's newsletter contained a three-view which sat relatively dormant in my "future hopes" file. It was brought to light (and to life) by the fact that I was getting well in a hospital and needed something to fill the time outside of visiting hours. So let's draw up a Peanut!

The WP-l is an aerodynamically clean airplane with adequate wing area for a Peanut. The one in the photo, weighing 10 grams complete, did 39 seconds during some early test flights and is fairly simple to build.

Thank you for Looking
