      Hi, I edited my statement but wanted to ask you if my thinking is correct here:

      ... it seems a significant benefit that the motor has peak torque at zero rpm and reaches peak power (still at peak torque) at 3600 rpm and maintains peak power throughout rpm increase. So, if we sized a prop for 4000 rpm with enough blade angle that we use max torque spinning at 3600 at standstill, and as forward motion eases the torque load on the prop and increasing rpm, we still are at max power, and maintain max power throughout takeoff just as if we had a constant speed prop. Am I talking out my trailing edge again or does this make sense?

      Thanks

      How is your project coming along? I enjoy reading your posts.

      Question: StarJar has an airplane top view called a starjar avitar at his logo on Homebuiltaircraft. View Profile: StarJar - HomeBuiltAirplanes.com

      It would appear that it might accomplish the same function as your 3d wintip/elevator design. I watched all the Ytube videos with you at Oshkosh and I think I understand what you are doing, and agree, btw. If you look at it, the leading edge would have a vortex that would swirl over and impact the surface at the wing tip trailing edge. I presume the flaps that hang behind the wing tip on the avitar would act to control pitch. Notice a hing point.

      What is the difference between your approach and the avitor wing tip approach? Would they both not give down force at the wing tip and counter -cm of the wing just like the Synergy 3d design would?

      Hi, I've been following your work on the Synergy Aircraft and can't believe I missed the post looking for SolidWorks users. My name is Dave Goolsby, I am a one man show at Soliex, Inc.. My main business is tool design for machine shop manufacturers in the aerospace industry. I also create shop drawings, assembly drawings...etc. I have several personal projects going such as some minor modifications to my Sonex kit and I'm designing a simple robust wind generator for home or small farm use. I have SW 2011 Premium SP1 that I use for all design and drawing work. I started a website back in July but haven't done anything with it since, it is <a href="http://www.soliexinc.com/">www.soliexinc.com</a>. I would be interested in looking at any work you need done and look forward to hearing from you.<br><br>Dave Goolsby

      Hello.
      its just to ask you a little question. did you prefer an easy to built airfoil by ex. Clark Y (almost 94% flat) or a high performance difficult to build airfoils says: Wortmann FX 61-126 ?
      thanks in advance.
      Alfredo.

    Current / Future projects:
    Presently building 'Synergy Prime', a patented (US8657226, US9545993) 'double boxtail', initially diesel-powered original aircraft of 1-7 seats. Synergy is designed to demonstrate a new technology for stability and control by means of induced drag reduction, in a high speed, laminar flow package. Th
    Past Projects:
    electric powered 25% scale Synergy prototype completed and test flown. 33% scale v.32 prototypes completed and in testing. 75% Synergy FanJet, 100% Prime electric, and 100% Prime diesel under construction.

    I have a 10' x 5' x 2' CNC router and three sixty-ton lamination presses, CNC hotwire, and other multiaxis equipment in a large composite shop. I spent fifteen years designing production systems and composite products for the action sports industry; primarily snowboards and injection molded thermoplastic composites. R/C modeler since 1975, dozens of original designs. Designing, building, flying 3-D printed large scale aircraft since 2006.

    I design advanced aircraft, props, airfoils, and related aeronautical items professionally and in collaboration with industry worldwide. Deeply involved in electric motor tech development, CFD, and wind energy. Synergy and all of its airfoils, details, and systems are of my own design, as are numerous other aircraft in development. Two issued US Patents for underlying innovations.

    For what it's worth I'll take attitude, aptitude, skill, and experience over 'credentials' any day of the week, but I feel strongly that certain things must be learned properly or not at all. "Let's be careful out there."

    I welcome member projects and will gladly help as time allows. Feel free to call using the Synergy website info.
