PlaneDrivenís Test Version of Roadable Sportsman
October 21, 2010 — PlaneDriven has revealed a new test version of the Roadable Sportsman that delighted so many at AirVenture 2010. PlaneDriven’s Wally Anderson says the major change is that the center pod located underneath the fuselage on the PD-1 has been moved. “The new design uses two pods with a lot less drag,” he said.
The two pods are now located over the main wheels and look like oversized wheel pants. The new research version is called the PD-X, which will be used to further refine the final design that will be offered for sale. You can follow the progress of the design here.
