http://www.airventuremuseum.org/collection/aircraft/Stits%20DS-1%20Baby%20Bird%20Specifications.asp#TopOfPage This is my example or my inspiration to the latest design. Baby Bird was the smallest monoplane ever ( still is ). Weight with 55 hp Hirth engine was 113,5 kilos ( part 103 in weight wise ). It was only 11 ft long ( 3,355 m )..i have a 1/2 foot longer kite. The engine is already 30 kilos more than my small ZDZ 210 is. 44'' prop is 10 '' more in dia..and heavier. Stits BB is without engine and prop around 75 kilos with heavy tricycle of metal contruction.
