    Prepping plywood for T-88.....

    Hand plane isn't normally sharpened flat but shallow curve and so planing a surface results in a series of shallow troughs going with the grain, using a joiner there will be a series of shallow troughs going the opposite direction, that is across the grain. So how is that fundamentally superior...

    That is why I am making chart, It just seems (obviously) that displacement is a key factor in performance and understanding how it puzzles out is interesting to me. For instance the VP-1 compared to the VP-2 the VP-2 has nearly twice the wing volume and only 1/2 again as much hp (40hp to 60hp...

    The cubic feet of wing is smaller in the Luciole so less air is displaced. I am working up a little chart on cubic feet of wing displacement and hp and weight and speed so maybe add the SD to the chart.

    One thing about flying apart from the view is the noise, I am not sure I could get accustom to what I am sure would be to me a shriek of sound from something doing 4500 odd RPM when I am used to 1/2 that RPM from the engine and a 1/4 from the prop.

    My car knows were I've been, how long it took me to get there etc soon it'll be hooked up to automatic ticketing ... well by then we may not legally be allowed to drive ourselves we'll have to let the computer do it.

    Since most of us (it seems) are mostly interested in the 810cc (49ci) but recently some interest has surfaced on the 627cc (38ci), I would think for aviation 35hp out of 39ci is abnormal if it had been designed that way let alone modified. But I would like to know more about it. I am more...

    I am not enamored with the engine but the gear reduction uncouples the prop from the crank?
