1986 Mutiny on the Boundry Layer


The Mutiny on the Boundry Layer was Parker McCready`s first try to build a hydrofoil with Flapping Wing Propulsion. The hydrofoil was based on the Flying Fish and tried to convert the power from the bicycle to a flapping wing.

More detailed information on the Mutiny on the Boundry Layer and Flapping Wing Propulsion by the designer himself can be found on his website or in the human power magazine.
