    Corby Starlet Airfoil

    Thank you gentlemen very much. I’ll work on those methods. Ive been trying to use Dan Raymer’s book as well. I did come up with 4.6 degrees with my calculations but that seemed way too much for one of Ribletts airfoils. Of course, this is going to be a ultralight with a 40hp motor.

    Corby Starlet Airfoil

    Thank You BJC for the reply. I understand what incidence angle is. Im trying to figure out an incidence angle for an ultralight that I want to use one of Ribletts airfoils on.

    The Millholland Designs Legal Eagle Ultralight, Legal Eagle XL and Double Eagle

    BJC , I must not be communicating my thoughts very well. I think all home builders should share their ideas and work together and make flying enjoyable, just like building rc planes with all my friends when I was a kid. What I was getting at is instead of everyone sharing ideas and helping each...

    The Millholland Designs Legal Eagle Ultralight, Legal Eagle XL and Double Eagle

    Sorry for the confusion. I didn’t mean the vw alone was 14000, i was talking about the entire aircraft. My point was every time a home builder comes up with a good idea to make a little plane, someone takes his ideas, makes a “company” and then drives the price up where it makes no sense to use...

    The Millholland Designs Legal Eagle Ultralight, Legal Eagle XL and Double Eagle

    I love the idea of building a Legal Eagle. Matter of fact I almost pulled the trigger on ordering plans two days ago.....that was until I started researching the companies that have taken over the vw engines and charge more for half an engine than the entire vw car that they came out of. It...
