I love it!!!

Since that vw engine is not big enough to stick out of the cowl, you need to make it into a Supercub and add flaps

Now all you got to do is make it remote controlled. Watching with desires of doing the same some day.

I know where you can get them but I am sure you already know where.

Well I have another update. I have been working on the engine and waiting for the air temperature to get above 32F so I could start the engine. Today I had a great chance to fire it up. I couldn't get it to run for very long as I need to remove the carburetor and rebuild it but I was happy to hear it fire up! Here is a video and the last engine run was the best and longest. So I ordered a carburetor kit and should be here in a couple of days.

Love the 1/2 VW! Sounds so much better than a 2 stroke!

I have to agree! And it runs surprisingly smooth!

I repaired the carburetor and this is the first engine run after the repair. Much better now. Now for warmer weather so I can finish running the engine after the rebuild, the engine manual states that the engine needs to be ran for 5 hours for break in before flight. I am going to start working on the wings, inspection and wing tip repair on the right wing.
Here is a video of the engine running after the carb repair.
