    Flying Ladders?

    Depends on span. But for a "normal" UL wing length and By itself ? , no . You will need fly wires , or "guy" wires Just as a tall tower needs Guy wires or a hang glider . Or maybe wing Struts .

    Re: Stan40353's "Challenge to you all"

    Depends on the metal used , And the method of welding . If its 4130 and Mig or Tig-ed it certainly Will need more heat treat work . If Not ,The cracks will appear in the parent metal just before or after the weld every time . The welds will be fine though. The tube cracks ! And this is...

    Re: Stan40353's "Challenge to you all"

    Dont think you really want to direct drive a prop off a crank shaft on these motors . . As they are not designed for direct push or pull forces a prop generates . They are designed for the side loading of belts or chains , .In Direct drive such as PTO drive shaft, these is still no push or pull...

    Re: Stan40353's "Challenge to you all"

    Pauls ,What is your frame member joining method with 4130 ? If you have the skill to oxy-acetylene weld And are good at tubing notching / fitting, you could have good welds, with no other process needing to be done . If you MIG or TIG , there are other steps in heat treating to normalize the...
