    Solidworks question

    Narfi, I see some grey lines in a grid pattern and some curved darker lines. Are you trying to annotate the points at the intersections of the dark lines to the lines in the grid?

    Best decision ever.....JUST DO IT !!!

    I received most of my instruction in Alabama and found a retired CFI as well; he charged me $25/hr plus $50 for the BE77. He was very thorough and at times I thought he had a death wish!

    Best way to fix rust and chipping on powder coating over steel tube?

    In the areas where rust has settled and hard to get at you can dab a bit of phosphoric acid which will turn the rust into an inert layer of ferric phosphate, then any good primer will keep it bay.

    Pober Pixie Airfoil

    VB, the stretch is the result of reclining the seat back to 10°from 4°and all the changes from the domino effect. Scrapper, I'm confident that the O-100 will be available if this ever gets built. From what I understand it's just finding a supplier for the crank machining that's holding things up.

    Pober Pixie Airfoil

    Thanks for the comments, all are being taken into consideration and appreciate the fine work that has been done by Mr. Poberezny. This is basically a new airplane because of all the modifications, weight saving is part of the goal, plus I like the what ifs. Like Scrapper, I want to participate...

    Pober Pixie Airfoil

    Hi all I've been working on a Pober Pixie 2" stretch in length and height of the cockpit, I call it the Dixie Parasol. I haven't made any calculations yet of the airframe, but plan on it and may have questions for those in the know. The Pegasus O-100 is the engine of choice and the...

    Solidworks Airfoil lofting question

    Nice looking work there ATC! HW, if the intent is to accurately locate the airfoil in position, simply add a new coordinate system at a point constrained to a tangent vertical line and the curve.

    CriCri MC-15 in NZ

    Rocket, I've been following your progress here on HBA since you first posted. I've been in Tool & Die for 30+ yrs and I'm always delighted when I see how you manage to make arguably difficult tasks look easy. I'm looking forward to seeing the rest of the build!
