One of the first engine powered parachute wing vehicle was designed in Poland in mid-eighties, by aeronautical engineers: Marek Debski Ph.D. and Andrzej Komor Ph.D. The power unit consisted of the KFM piston engine and two counter-rotating over-ducted propellers. The idea of counter-rotating was to eliminate possible gyro effects. The power unit was mounted on a vehicle’s carriage. All the structure are easily demounted and packed into a car luggage compartment for transport purposes.
