The CaRnard* is a new concept in roadable aircraft which takes advantage of the geometric match between the canard aircraft configuration and the mid engine auto. Each high main wing is on a common pivot with one above the other. They rotate forward in a horizontal plane thru an angle of about 110 degrees. In this position they are above and roughly parallel to the fuselage. Each canard also has a pivot near a front corner of the vehicle. They pivot forward about 180 degrees so that one is above the other.
