Icarus V Foot Launched Hang Glider

This is a picture of my Icarus V in the early 1970s.  I pulled my 1946 Ercoupe out of the hangar to build the Icarus V by scratch from plans I bought from Tarus Kiceniuk.
Photo 1 Construction of airframe. Photo 2 is completed aircraft with original paint scheme at 1st Powered Hanglider Meet in Marilla, MI.. 

Photo of my MAC 101 GoCart engine and 24" wooden propellor.  Notice  propulsion was full speed or no speed using a kill switch in my mouth.

I will replace MAC101 with two electric Motors built into each wing using R/C model airplane technology used for flying model Quadcopters and Drones.
