FACET OPAL
By Scott Winton
........These are a few shots of  Australian Scott Winton's Facet Opal flying wing design.  It was powered by a 40 hp engine. Scott broke 4 records with it, including climbing to over 30 000 ft with only his 40 hp.  It appeared to be a successful design, although something did go wrong on a flight and Winton was killed.
........There has been a moderate amount of interest in this design, but there are not a lot of details available.  We have learned there is some video footage available from a contact in Australia.  The price for a single copy on DVD is about $50 Austrailian (which is about $28 US plus postage), but the price would come down if there were several people interested.  Additional quantity would also reduce shipping cost, if it were sent to one US address and disbursed from there.
.........If you would like a copy and don't mind waiting a while for others to sign up, please contact us at:  twitt@pobox.com.  No money would be needed until the decision was made to purchase the copies.
