Some clarification needed, is it to be a real plane, or an imaginary one?

That'll be the next question ;)
Personally I like the idea more to design an imaginary one, but that will be up to you!

FWIW: there can be more than one propellor on an engine... they are generally contra-rotating (not counter-rotating) and can be found on single, double and quad engine craft...

"Why not?" said Gurder.

A draw?? The next vote will decide between Three-engine-jet or Twin-propeller...

When is the poll to decide for trijet or biprop is going to be made?
I am thirsty to cast my vote now :D

This is not about number of wings, but engines! There will be more polls.

Good point.
I believe that EDNY asked earlier, that if he missed something we would like to vote on, he would have ammended the poll :S

Now most multiple-wings are monoprops right?
That will be a way to cast your vote, and then push for that direction ....

:(
Damn
Twinprops are winning now :(

I think FG is rich in those. We have the Seneca II (beautiful and works great), we have some Cessnas, there is the EMB120, and others I am surely missing here

I was hoping Trijets, cause all these I know of are rather poorly developed. Except, maybe the some MD10s

Will see...

If its a trijet, then it will have to be the trident or a falcon. I would prefer a prop myself.

I love the Lockheed Tristar. The Hawker Siddeley trident is amazing too :D

I think FG has a good Dassault Falcon

But it does not "have to be"
