hmm...regular old china motor in the frame for road power, something like a lawnmower engine or 50cc honda or something rackmounted on the back with a prop. Similar design with the 'cute and short stabilizing wings. Could work, but I wouldn't go very high with it.

Somebody please do this, because if I tried, my wife would kill me, lol.

heh, people make some weird crap. I think if I was going to have a prop on anything that pushed me on the ground, I'd make a hovercraft (ever see that junkyard wars episode?)

And I worry about the exhaust noise from my little 2 stroke being annoying...
How would you like to listen to that thing running up and down your street? Don't weed whackers have mufflers?
I have a 4 stroke model airpland engine that swings a bigger prop that he was using and pulls a 17 pound airplane with 9 foot wings like you can't believe. In fact the thing is hard to hold on the ground when I'm doing engine runups, almost takes two to hold it back. I think the weed whacker engine is a waste of energy...and it's noisy. Maybe I should put that 4 stroker on a bike...hhhhmmmmm...
