My version of a design built more than 20 years ago. It uses commercial window frame “Beams” for the body, and simple 1 inch tubes for the tail.


The wings are a simple ladder structure with strut bracing. It can be built in High wing, Mid wing or Low wing configuration, and nose or tail wheel.


It is intended for engines ranging from 16 Horse Kohler or Briggs to the 447 rotax and will fly delightfully in the US UL range..


The TNW/ Beamcraft II : Here we have another version of the Beam Craft: A Biplane! Same structure, same wheel arrangements, same rough weights and performance, just cute - er! You can have 2 ailerons or 4.
