Not for me, but thanks. Pete Smart's similar Gossamer Albatross is always very nice to watch...

+ Hmmm.. a Scale flight of that thing wouldn't look Anything like  the Video'd one.
The Gossamer contraption .. Barely.. achieved it's design objectives.
 Not a hope it could have done a circling pattern

That's true enough. You could say the same about all the Santos Dumont 14 bis peanuts you see floating about near the ceiling for ages. Still nice to warch in their own right though.

I think winning the Kramer Prize involved a figure of eight pattern, so it could definitely circle...

Yes it fit - and the aeroplane did what it needed to do - remember the power source  was pedal power - so that was the real influence on the performance.
