XL-536 by TheXHS XL-536 by TheXHS
The XL-536 is a single-seated ultralight STOL aircraft. High placed twin-boom mounted canard avoided from foreign object damage during landing on unprepared strips. Low pressure tundra tires give better off-airport capability. Two biplane wing equipped by efficiently slotted flap have extra lift for low-speed takeoff. Slats before ailerons prevent upper wing from tip stall and roll controlability loss. Aircraft powered by two electrical engine (two small two-stroke piston engine 12.5 hp each also considered, but their nacelle looks non aesthetically)

Why? Canard aircraft aren't especially hard to fly.

Yes. For example, the MiG-8 was known for having very docile handling:

In fact, many canard aircraft had the canard added to improve stability.

I love your unconventional aircraft designs! I'm very much a fan of unusual planes.

On a whim, I decided to replicate this aircraft in SimplePlanes, and after some tweaking to the CoM and elevator control surface size, I found the plane to be surprisingly stable and maneuverable. The only change I had to make was the landing gear. For some reason, the tail-dragger configuration kept losing control on run-up. This could just be a by-product of the game's loose physics simulation, but in any case, I reconfigured the undercarriage for tricycle gear and the plane takes off beautifully.

Anyway, keep cranking out the weird planes!

Судя по вычурности конструкции, новогодние праздники прошли не зря!

Да, лучше не употреблять. Я вот сам давно не бухаю. И не рисую.

I don't think this could work.

Don't worry! I predict only lack of directional stability due to small arm of vertical surfaces. Lateral and longitudinal - no prob, this layout often used in first airplanes (Wright Flyer, Farman, 14-bis  etc)

I think you need to flip the front wing to the back.

No! No! No! I want canard configuration! And no poblem with it - many thousends of small canard aircraft such as Long-EZ or Gyroflug Speed Canard flyes everywere - it's work.

I'd think visibility would be the bigger issue. The forward elevator is right in the pilot's eyeline. Can't argue style though - it sure looks cool!

Leading edge slats. There are some misunderstanding about forward and aft. This one is a canard aircraft, and small wing placed on two booms is a most forward part of aircraft

The 2016 year was worst for me, in terms of drawing. I drew only 20 aircraft in lineart and no one in color.There were then other interesting things in my life - work at Antonov design bureau, first flight on Cessna 150L (I have 45 minutes airborne), rock climbing, postgraduate exam passing (philosophy and english for phD courses), etc. With no time for drawing (or without inspiration?).
