I have studied this plane intensely at the air and space museum in DC. Crazy control system using the hips to control the ailerons, which were actually just the wings flexing instead of literal flaps. The engine was a pig and didn’t make much power. With an evo motor you could add about 30hp and shed probably 100 pounds at least (original was liquid cooled). Man it would be sweet to make one.
