    HI Norman!

    I am new to the forum, and new to aviation all together. I have really enjoyed all the different posts and pieces of information that have been great to soak up.

    I spent years as a mechanic through high school and college to pay for school, and after that spent one college summer working and repairing airplanes at a hanger. I have a technical background.

    I was wondering if someday I could message you with some ideas that I have been mulling over. I am designing and building a 3d printer and hopefully a small wind tunnel unit to build and test out some of my ideas. After that, I would build an RC model to test.

    I would love to get your perspective. You would be under no obligation to respond super fast. I know you're busy.

    Anyway, I have enjoyed your posts, and your feedback to some of my threads even.

    Safe flying !!

  2. Oh, don't worry, it won't be. A few words and some links at best. In fact you could find most of it with the <likes received> and <likes given> buttons to the left of this message. You can also find a lot of FW information in my attachments on RCG

    I hate writing too, I would do it all in mathematical shorthand if I could...
    No rush, mate. Thanks a bunch for chiming in but please don't feel like you need to put out a literary masterpiece.

    Norman...I think I recognize you from RCGroups. I have seen your avatar before.
    My name/avatar in RCG is the same as here, if you remember me at all. I don't think we talked much.

    Ya u got my point Norman, I am deeply concerned about the flimsy looking structural members of the X air Falcon an AN-4 bolt which is only 6mm in diameter is used hold the wing strut, am totally scared at the structural integrity of this plane. Do u know any one who owns an Indian built X air-Falcon.

    Nice to hear from you Norman, I've flown in an X-Air Falcon in a near by ultralight flying school, then I analysed the bolt sizes and the fastenings, then was shocked they are prity damn light for its strength requirements, Was planing to buy an X-Air but worried wether the plane will be strong enough to fly for years to gether while pushing it to high G's often, can u help me have a better understanding on this please.
