I was mucking about with a flexwing design for a while. I did think of doing a 
Quicksilver but I decided against it because I like 'navigable' aircraft ;-)

It'd be really good to have a fairly detailed aircraft like the Quicksilver 
with an 'ultra-open' cockpit to check out the scenery that we are starting to 

I also wondered about trying to simulate a BRS system that you see on many 
Quicksilvers but I'm not sure if the FDMs would support such a thing.

Look forward to seeing it :-)
