Nope, and they are always trying to mandate more driver aids.

Nor I.

And I think you could. Stability control and traction control can be run by the ABS system.

In my mind "fully mechanical" means: no active differentials, no adaptive suspension, no automatic transmission, no drive by wire throttle (or brake) and finally no electronic power steering.

The RB-1 which was a converted ultralight that flew about 300ft.



And one built by an artist that attempted to fly at the Top Gear track at one point. Anyone that's ever wound up a rubberband toy airplane can tell from the video that was not going to fly!
