The craft you designed weighs 60 kilograms (132.2 pounds) and has a wingspan of 30 meters (98.4 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. Sixty Kilograms (132.2 pounds) is probably too heavy for a pilot pedaling at one-half horsepower to get it off the ground.
The wingspan of about 30 meters is probably long enough to provide enough lift without creating too much drag. The stabilizer up front is designed to keep the plane on a nice and steady course.
