You need to see it: http://www.fanwing.com/

Interesting quote:
Documented efficiencies for the first prototypes were found to be in the order of 20 grams of lift per watt of input power.

Well of course we have to scale that up!
P-51 engine: 820kw (820000 watts)
multiply by 20 grams per watt = 16,400,000 grams
or 36 155.811 pounds of lift!

The m1a2 has a 1119 kw engine in it. Do the math on that.

I'll be building one of these planes in my yard so if anyone needs thier house moved to another country just let me know.

"multiply by 20 grams per watt = 16,400,000 grams

Putting that into an alternative perspective, a fully loaded B17G had an overload weight of about 72,000 lbs. Or in other words if this wing had been available in WW2 then in theory a B17 would have needed just two Merlins to get airborne.

Great find Baldie, very interesting ...

Great lift but very slow though http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Any numbers on the auto-gyro in BoB ?
