Default Single engine Defiant?

I have followed this forum as an observer for many years. Has anyone ever commented on building a single (more HP) engine DEFIANT and using the nose/tail for extra baggage/BRS to adjust for W&B? Just a thought.

Default Re: Single engine Defiant?

The whole purpose of the Defiant was to have two engines. Defiants have very large wings and a huge canard. Why build such a large plane with only one engine, then add weight to get W&B? If you're going to have only one engine, just build a Cozy.
