I guess a mixture of both would be ideal. Initially 0º with tape and on top roving in 45 or 60º. May someone remind me the name of the plane out of tubes where the pilots sit in the air on a tube bed and a pusher engine?
Winding with roving is what fischerman use on carbonrods and its easy and fast. I would say it takes less time than welding. Some sort of combs that are left in the joint and afterwards the pins are sanded off, would make life easier in order to match the 45-60º winding. With good gloves and a...
Just use a matek 745 board and load inav and it flies you to your destination at programmed altitude for 65 bucks.
Maybe you could also land with that setup))) Preferably you need to carry a wake up clock onboard.
Guess he is less ambitious than we are and doesnt get lost in complexity and performance. Doing a vehicle that just takes off, would be for most of us a 1 year project and not an 8 year project most of us aim at.
looking at the ducting of the upper radiator inlet scoop, it seems like it is ducted up to a small radiator (no plenum) and after the rad, just spills the air into the engine cowl, disregarding compleltly an outlet scoop and hoping the prop at the root creates suction in the whole engine...
What i like is that those engines at the tip rotate each one i guess to the outside, avoiding the creation of a tip vortex. Possibly the effect is that the plane has in reality a much larger AR than based on the actual planform.
