Tophe, the Stout Skycar 2B would have been like flying a motorcycle! Much of the front engine would be between the pilot's leg. Sounds like a good whif!
Thanks for your approval! ;)
Ahem, a push-pull does not mean obligatorily 2 engines (at least). IMHO, the Canton-Unné of 1910 was a push-pull twin-boomer with a single engine behind the pilot but 2 propellers back and forth to counteract torque, the front one being driven by a simple shaft (between pilot's legs yes) like on the P-39 Airacobra and cousins. <_<
[the word "realistic" hurts my heart...]
