A NoCal version of the only known Wittman Tailwind built with retractable landing gear. Only the wing struts prevent this from being an “ideal” NoCal (high-wing, no struts, no landing gear – my own definition of “ideal”).
This is designed for Indoor flying and the parts will be cut from 6# or less sheet balsa. An indoor prop suggestion is shown on the plan. It could be flown outdoors if the wing was beefed up a little.
