CAUTION: EXTREMELY SLOW PLANE, NON-STANDARD CONTROLS
I recommend reading description.
The Bloop 4 is an ultralight plane designed and built by Mike Sandlin, an aviation enthusiast. The Bloop 4 is a type of ultralight called a Motorfloater. Its extremely light weight, small engine (from a paramotor rig), and low wing loading allows it to fly very slowly, and perform very tight turns. It is much like flying a paramotor, but with the convenience, safety, and comfort of an ultralight. It is a 2-axis plane; it does not have ailerons, and maneuvers using only rudder and elevators. All of these things serve to provide a very unique flying experience. Cruise speed: 30 mph. Top speed: 40 mph.
Flight controls are standard (except no roll/ailerons)
Ag1- easy mode (not for use on the ground)
I found that flying was a bit awkward without ailerons, but once you get used to it, the plane is perfectly controllable.
Thanks to @tylerdeveneuxmusic for the awesome feedback.
