    P-51C at ~70% scale as ultralight?

    A Hummelbird will not make Part 103 for a few reasons.......ask me how I know. 1. Too heavy 2. Too fast 3. Stalls too fast 4. Fuel.....you can work around that. There are other Hummel designs that will meet Part 103......but not the Hummelbird. Been there and gave up on that after a few years...

    Build supplies under the clouds

    I could be wrong...but I've always been under the impression that the ply used in musical instruments was the same ply that is used in aircraft construction. Particularly that a lot of it is shipped overseas. Kevin

    Build supplies under the clouds

    I'm going to beat a dead horse with 2 examples here..... 1. When I placed my order for plywood with Wicks....I was quoted around $450 - $500 shipping for a 4 hour trip. To their credit,the shipping only came out to around $350.....so I will give credit where it is due in this case. But Wicks &...

    I know it's been a while since I've posted to my build log so I just wanted to post some info to let everyone know that I'm still working on the Stork. I've been waiting to sheet the fuselage sides until the weather breaks and it turns warm for the duration. The weather has been so...

    Newb from Las Vegas!

    In all seriousness, I have to ask...... Does your wife have the personality type that if she doesn't enjoy it then nobody is allowed to enjoy it ? Or is she the type that just doesn't want any money expended unless it's for something that she wants ? Not trying to be too personal by...

    Any Ragwing Projects here?

    There were 2 Storks that I get confused on.... One had a Radial and the other had a Subaru. I'm not sure which one went down due to an engine failure but I will assure you that one of them got broken up and the occupants hurt pretty badly.....I saw the video of them being extracted from the...

    http://nzcivair.blogspot.com/search?q=ragwing Hate to tell you this....buuuuuuut..... I believe that's the gentleman,Wayne Wilson,that had an engine out and broke the plane up in a field when the Radial engine quit. He hurt his passenger pretty bad and I believe he suffered a broken back...

    Any Ragwing Projects here?

    You do realize that only a handful of the RW19/RW20's have ever been completed & flown......right ? And you do realize that you are going to be VERY hard pressed to find ANYONE with flight time in one....right ? And you do realize that anyone you find that has built & flown one is going to...

    Surface paint - is orange peel a bad thing?

    If I remember correctly, Malcolm is an EAA tech advisor.....or something of that nature. He has a lot of good information on his website pertaining to latex paint used on aircraft. He makes the latex look better than most other types of paint out there by simply wet sanding and polishing. The...
