    Hello from an aspiring pilot and experienced DIYer

    Take a look the Aeromomentum engines here: https://aeromomentum.com They seem to be very well developed, and the proprietor is a member here. Even if you don't choose one of their products, it will still give you an idea of what a modern automotive engine will wind up looking like when adapted...

    Eppler Airfoils

    If there is, I don't know what it is. I don't remember anything of his that meets that exact definition, but it wouldn't be too hard to tweak the E472 down to 10% thickness with XFOIL or XFLR5.

    Finished the skins on my RV-12iS Tailcone!

    Nice job on the video, as usual! Thanks for including the "oops" moments, too. We all have them.

    Substituting wood types

    Sounds like the birch is perhaps a hard point for mounting? If so, the ash is probably just fine.

    The designs of Henri Nicollier

    That was pretty nice workmanship by that little girl! ;) The Super Menestrel is right up my alley. I picture an open cockpit version, more in keeping with the Turbulent, Jodel D.9, etc. I don't have the space to build a one-piece wing, though.

    Wanted to purchase: Fluid Dynamic Drag- Hoerner

    I have borrowed a copy through Inter-Library Loan at my friendly, local public library. Easy and free, but requires patience. That might be an option, to tide you over while you look for your own copy.

    CAD Program

    FreeCAD appears to have really grown in capability since the last time I took a look at it.

    Yamaha YG4i (Apex) Data Collection

    I spent a few years working at National Instruments, in a non-technical role. That was my first exposure to data acquisition systems. The things our customers did blew me away. I am still fascinated by this stuff, so keep posting!
