    Re: Ultralight Battery Powered

    I don't think there are any rules against it, but be aware that batteries are considered part of the airframe weight of a Part 103 UL. It sucks, but for the time being that's how it is.

    Re: Lyco-Saurus Valve Cover Bolts

    So if snug is good and people still worry about them coming loose, why not just drill them for safety wire if you're concerned and be done with it?

    Re: Huge R/C Jet Structural Failure

    The load imposed by the rudder deflection didn't break it, the slip did. As for why it was so lightly built, I would guess it was to bring the takeoff and landing speeds down to be as docile as...

    Re: streamlining flying wires?

    If you had doubled up cables like I think a Fly Baby does, I wonder if filling the gap between them with balsa would cut down on drag?
  7. Re: GE/T406 Engine. What would you design / build?

    Seeing as the T406 is from a tilt rotor, you don't want that nifty all-attitudes oil system to go to waste. How about a Lockheed XFV-1?

    Alright, I'm stumped. What's this?

    Re: One Pound Survival Pod

    Well when you have the airplane problem you'll probably yell something like, "Aw, shoot!" and you'll likely say the same when you see what kind of terrain you're going to come down on. Based on that...

    That's so true how much the canopy shapes how we see a plane. If it weren't for the tail, would you be able to ID this as a Waiex?...
  13. Re: Seeking drawings or plans (or kits) of Pioneering aviation aircraft

    There used to be complete-looking drawings for a Bleriot XI online but I'm not sure I'd go through the effort just to end up with something so comically impractical.

    I believe enough replica...
  14. Re: About to build Pietenpol - How do I first go about it?

    The radiator isn't as much hinderance to the view as you might think. A proper Piet rad is only about as wide as the engine block (but quite thick to compensate) so it only blocks a small portion of...
  15. Re: About to build Pietenpol - How do I first go about it?

    A Continental A65 is also pretty ubiquitous on a Pietenpol. It's the same engine employed by countless Cubs, Aeroncas and Taylorcrafts among many others and being manufactured as an airplane engine...

    Re: Looking For Wipline Float Parts

    Have you tried contacting any of the nearby rebuilders to see if they know of sources for these extrusions? I imagine you've been down to the shop on the waterfront and there's also companies like...
  17. Re: About to build Pietenpol - How do I first go about it?

    The only Piet I've flown is Ford powered and I have to say it's a nice little airplane. It's not perfect (hell, there's even a couple things that should be fixed) but all in all it's a very pleasant...
