Yup, that Wright Flyer got snickered at for flying 120ft ..
So WHAT? Bottom line is how much payload does it have? Then when loaded to gross weight how far can it fly? Thats the real question as there was two electric ones that didnt have any payload rebuilt just like this one.
I'm pretty sure your great-great-grandfather voiced the same concerns about the Wright Flyer.
That spoken like a true dip.
That reminds me an amazing true fact that is not relevant to anything but still interesting. John Tyler was America's 10th president, and he was born in 1790. He has a grandson who is alive today.
