The development of the StarVulcan began around the same time as the UltraSabre, which was designed in mid-2013. In its original form, the StarVulcan lacked many of the features it now possesses, including the new canard design that had been developed for the Simple Vulcan, a minimized fuselage and even winglets, which were omitted on original prototypes as "frills." While the original prototype flew decently, delays in publication worked to its advantage as more developments and opportunities for improvement and modification came following the development of other aircraft--particularly other Vulcan derivatives. In early April 2014, I decided that it was time to flight test the StarVulcan prototypes for publication, as I felt a need existed for a capable but simple airplane to complement the moderately elaborate StarSabre. Flight testing of the new prototypes went well, and they were finally cleared for publication.
