Where can one get some general info on the Big X? How do the cockpit dimensions compare to the Fourrunner of Calbies? ________________________________ From:gorgonc3
Yes, I am aware of the data from Red on his W10. I was thinking more of published articles in Sport Aviation or Kit Planes - more public exposure for Witt'sokdonn
Mark L, thank you for your question. There is information on Witt's O&O and Big-X all over the internet,Sport Aviation and among the Forum members. But to firstname.lastname@example.org
Picture above is John Downing's beautiful Tri-gear W-10 in Central Michigan featuring a Mazda 13 B Rotary with Tracy Crook redrive... Picture at right is Eric Schlanser's beautiful Tri-gear W-10. A 20 year effort and tacked up in the same jig as Farmer John's.
The W-10 Tailwind is simple, light, and FAST! Red Hamilton's Race 37 has set the bar at 235 MPH cruising speed (though admittedly he was in a race at the time)!
For builders and other interested folks, all of the old newsletters can be found in the "Files" section. Also there is a lot of other helpful construction information in the Files Section and many pictures of construction and flying in the Photos Section. Also note that "Clement modifications" are recommended for the W-10 tailwinds, and he also has the plans for the trike gear. Jim Stanton has a list of drawing corrections and other information. The Swiss group has put together a Compendium of builder's hints and comments, which is almost a builder's bible for construction. All information can be found in the "Files" section.
