This project is from the same guys who owned the 220hp Cont W-670 (Tank engine)powered Skybolt. I don't believe they built the Skybolt, but they did own it for quite some time and did extensive work on it, IIRC. Seems they have a decent background of experimental biplanes with radials.
What is the weight of the CJ-6 engine? Looks like the gear is well forward. Considering it isn't on it's nose with no wings, tail feathers, etc, it can't be too badly nose heavy can it?
