They changed the 2 seat rule after Sharp went through the trouble of making NXT fit two people. It may have been changed to allow the GP5. Timing was about right.
400mph is no joke. These guys are getting a lot of hp out of those engines at 80+ inches mp. Getting them to survive seems to be...
I'm going to give the new one a shot. I hate that it's web based, but I blew my opportunity to learn SW when I had the thing on my computer.
I use Rhino and it's so different I have no clue where to start with SW. It's pretty frustrating.
If it's a Freewing I set one up and it flies very well with no gyro. I even plugged up the cheater hole because it's not needed. Maybe your cg is off or your throws are too high. It has a very high roll rate that can be toned down by changing the linkage positions.
I don't see why a scaled...
I love motorcycle engines, but connecting them to a propeller seems difficult. Plus theres the extra weight of the transmission. I did see a pic once of a pusher that had a cbr 1000 in it and he used the chain drive.
I was looking at model turbine engines the other day and while they can run on both diesel and jet A, you are required to use more oil on jet fuel.
I'm not sure how much of a difference that makes for an Audi, but I thought it was interesting.
Even though I think moving the cg forward is absolutely the right move, it will not decrease drag. The canard will have more camber with a bigger slot and it will make bigger tip vortices.
Several degrees less aoa is not going to happen. 3 degrees less would represent a massive loss of lift...
Sorry Jeff, but there wasn't much but fault to find. That flight was insanely risky knowing what we knew from previous tests.
The part where he seems to have no friends is sad. Most folks I've run into at the airport have been very friendly. I'd have to assume he isn't.
