STOL Inspiration.


Looking for inspiration at a true STOL machine traveling at 120 mp/h average as measured by the 1932 Challenge https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Challenge_International_de_Tourisme_1932 . This is where most STOL developed from… interesting thing was Auto Slast, slotted flaps, spoilers at 15% of span, and folding wings; built for 4. FI-156 and Helio Currier…. to name a few came inspired from this configuration. It was probably faster if not for the radial engine… hopefully will get to see one in person soon.
