Hi again guys,
Good choice guys.Originally posted by poze4
my friend goody and i have decided on a tip-jet helicopter rather than the prop-copter, the design seems simpler(except jets) and more legitimate
this is the site we have purchased the plans off
Now, don't be concern about the "Jet Engine" If it's a pressure jet ... You have the right guys here and it is not that hard to do.
I am more concern about your plans and especially the engine in it. You need to know, that most of the plans present on the Net, are copys of someone else, which are copys of copys of copys. The Net is the perfect place for stealing copys of copys. Strangely, the plans you have ... I have them here. The chopper is not that bad but the engine .... Hummmmm .... Good luck.
Ask your self one question ... Galvanized steel pipes ... For an internal combustion jet engine which bound to burn that fuel in the areas above 1000°F ... Better think twice about it if you plan to fly for more then 30 seconds.
Better think more in terms of ... Stainlees steel 321 or at least ... 316L.
Just ask the right questions at the right place and you guys will be flying soon.
