Group Description

For discussion and exchange of information related to the Wittman Tailwind, Nesmith Cougar, and similar aircraft, like the Buttercup, Big X, Daphne, Fourrunner and O&O--focus is on building and flying designs by Steve Wittman and related designs and modifications by others. Pictures can also be posted if moderate size.

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.
