Just finished a pedal plane for my oldest grandson. The fake radial engine was made from plywood, steel bowl and PVC for the cylinders. The prop turns when you pedal the plane. It is run by a twisted heavy duty rubber band.The stick steers the tail wheel. The prop is made from a piece of 1/2” floor shop floor mat from HF. There are many pedal powered plans available, I used my own design. It is just a generic airplane.
