The craft you designed weighs 60 kilograms (132.2 pounds) and has a wingspan of 20 meters (65.6 feet). Below is a picture of your craft, which is a modified picture of the Gossamer Albatross, (an improvement over the Gossamer Condor). The thrust is created by a propeller in the rear of the craft that is powered by the pedaling pilot. The wingspan of about 20 meters is probably not long enough to provide enough lift for a pilot pedaling at less then one-half horse power to get it off the ground.
The stabilizer up front is designed to keep the plane on a nice and steady course. Sixty Kilograms (132.2 pounds) is probably too heavy for the pilot.
