I am currently studying Solidworks and have an interest in folding wings.
My first aviation job was folding Sikorsky helicopters on ships’ decks. I also have a few innovative ideas about folding wings.
What is your mission ...... gross weight ...... trailer width ..... etc.
FAA Master Parachute Rigger
retired military helicopter mechanic, etc.
My first message was a failure, as I posted it to myself! Pardon me for not answering earlier, as I had expected the message board to e-mail posts directly board members. I flew with Freddie Quarles out of the (now closed) UVA airport in 1964-65. He had a Mite and a new 4-seat Mooney at that time. The plan set is factory drawings .. very detailed down to the smallest part! Amounts to a tightly wound 3" diameter package. I've owned these since 1971 or so .. never been out of my possession, and presumed to be the complete set .. or, at least all of whatever was offered as a complete set.
interesting that i see your message, as it's been over a year since I've logged on here.
All of our projects - including the Envoy turbine - have been on hold for quite a while. The economy has not been kind to us these last few years, and we've been barely able to stay afloat. But things seem to be turning around, and we hope to be able to complete both the Envoy and Solo projects next year. Welcome to Sreya Aviation and Welcome to Ayerscraft are where we'll eventually get info undated on these.
if you want, you can always contact me directly at [email protected]
Hello, I found this thread stating you were interested in buying complete plans for the M-18-X. I came accross a set from my late father in laws estate. It looks to be a complete set of blueprints and 2 binders full of additional information. Please let me know if you are still interested in buying plans. I would like to see them go to someone that will use them. I also have a complete set for the VJ-22 Sportsman.
Yup, My stuff is in Solidworks. I have looked at your site before. Very interesting stuff. I have really been delving into SW for some client projects. The last couple were in high purity and wind turbine as well as other rotating fan type work. That stuff is very interesting. I am one of those people that has found a niche making solidworks do things that people say it isn't good at like importing and lofting aero data.
