A couple of days ago, over in the Cheap Air Racing Class thread, I basically volunteered nerobro to share his design process "out in the open" on the boards. He accepted the challenge and he's moving forward with his design in the Designing the Cheap Air Racer thread. Definitely take a moment and check that out.
In fairness, I've decided to put my time and money where my mouth is, and do one myself. Matt G. put it best:
I'm going to start and maintain two threads. The main thread, in the "Build Log" section, will show the work on the project. Build Log threads are locked to everyone but the OP, so I'll be the only one posting there. This thread, in the Aircraft Design sub-forum, will exist so that I can talk with you folks about the project, ask for your advice, and answer your questions. I hope you'll learn some things, and I hope you'll teach me some things.It would be a good way for me to learn more about things I don't know as much about, and for others to learn about stuff I do know a thing or two about.
Thanks for your interest!
