Odog you are right about that I might design it and build it it will take about 4to5 months on the plane but guess what it will be powered by? 2 J85 with afterburners now that would be cool

My first "encounter" with the Gevers Genesis was an brief article in AIR International (KEY Publications, U.K.)Interestingly, a thread in the FFDS Forum (Note blatant plug) indicated that the Russians had several flying concept planes with telescoping wings, and that extension/retraction was actually easier in flight than on the ground.I've "started" several times on the Genesis. I see that modelling it for FS2002 would require possible compromises, although with contact points for ski-type gear the triphibian concept is "doable"As you can see, the props are mounted on swing "arms" that at the same time form the side and lower part of the fuselage, mounting either the (land) outriggers, or forming the water-landing "floats" "Unfortunately" the positions are different for land or water.It's also not a design that "easily" lends itself to jet engines. While it's a twin engined aircraft, the engines are co-linear, and both engines drive the two props via a clutch and belt mechanism, so the "loss" of one engine doesn't cause yaw problems.

It's not so much the engines, as where they're positioned. In the case of the Genesis, the two engines are within the fuselage, driving the props via belts.In the "usual" twin-jet configurations, where the engines are in the rear, loss of power in one doesn't make for as much a problem as if they were "out" on the wings.
