Fuselage

 

 

The Fuselage

The fuselage is of spruce construction, ply covered, with curved top decking and is of pleasing appearance. 

The pilot's cockpit is roomy and includes a locker for tools and luggage. Shock-absorbers are included in the under-carriage. 

The wing is not made to fold, but is easily detached for housing, 5 minutes being required for this operation and about 15 minutes for assembly. 

The "Minor" will cruise comfortably at 75 m.p.h., at which speed the flight range is 225 miles, but it also cruises with engine at half throttle, perhaps one of the best tests for aircraft of this category, at 60 m.p.h., giving a flight duration of 270 miles. 

Larger tanks can be fitted if required.
