Custer Channelwing: Introduction
"Unbelievable Performance"


Inventor Willard Custer standing in front of CCW-5

Over the years,a number of attempts have been made to revive the Custer. They are shown in this section to demonstrate newer ideas, and improvements in Channelwing theory. Only ideas that have been researched and designed by aerodynamic professionals are included. These aircraft are capable of being built and flown to design specifications, according to research data mentioned earlier, and competent research conducted since.

Sometime in the late 1980s, an international consortium called the Product Developement Group was formed to design and build aircraft for the U.S. military. These designs incorperated up to date technology and new innovation for the channelwing. After a great deal of searching, I have found the full production drawings for the two aircraft. It would appear that they were to compete with the V-22 "Osprey", but the project fell through with the death of the major backer. I have many pages of "demo" drawings such as these, along with performance data, tooling requirements, etc. These are truly impressive aircraft by any standards. This performance coupled with the reliability would seem to place them far ahead of the V-22 Osprey. Although they could be designed for vertical takeoff, it would seem of little use considering the slow approach and takeoff speeds. You will note the channel is placed in front of the wing, with a stub wing behind it. This gives a very strong structure ( +8, -4 G) that would make the P-50 a real contender for close support or high speed attack roles. Judge for yourself, keeping in mind that these designs were the product of University studies, competent engineering, and hundreds of hours of flight testing, rather than the wishful dreams of a novice.
