    Re: FADEC with Garmin G3X Touch

    I would rather not fly without RPM, EGT, TIT and oil information and there unfortunately is no cockpit space left for the engine manufacturers OEM display.

    Good thing I am capable of building a...
  2. Re: The "Beast One": What doesn't kill you makes you stronger

    You see it in my avatar. I hope you don't mind I don't want to include a full resolution yet.


    We started independently in two groups with students doing a concept study and constraint analysis...
  3. Re: The "Beast One": What doesn't kill you makes you stronger

    Actually, if you check the comparison I stated the conservative numbers and not the optimistic values from the comparison. Basically I do not pretend to have much better values than the JSX while our...
  4. Re: Integrated aerobatic fuel tank with exotic engine

    I get the point, but this only applies after one tank is (almost) empty and I still have have the possibility to switch to either one. From the technical perspective I understand you, but if I have...
  5. Re: The "Beast One": What doesn't kill you makes you stronger

    This is a comparison for required thrust over flight speed calculated using detailled 3-views of the BD-5J, the JSX-2 and the Beast One:
    79070

    For landing speed, it even outperforms the JSX-2,...
  6. The "Beast One": What doesn't kill you makes you stronger

    This is the thread where I present the concept of the "Beast One". Unlike the title, it is the goal to create an economic BD-5 alike single seat jet which on the contrary to the BD-5 won't try to...

    Re: FADEC with Garmin G3X Touch

    It seems FADEC is where you guys draw the line with experimental aviation ;-)

    I dug through the manual and there is a cable where I could intercept the k-type thermocouple for EGT and a Pt100 for...
  8. Re: Integrated aerobatic fuel tank with exotic engine

    The engine is a PBS TJ-100. Consumption is between 40l/h idle and 120l/h at take-off. We could have chosen a centertank like the JSX-2, but we rather do not. With wet tanks the CoG will change less...

    Re: Raptor Composite Aircraft

    Still, I think there is more to gain from a completed bad design, than from a cancelled good one. It is also good to see them failing. For companies, this would be hidden by message control. Of...
  10. Re: Integrated aerobatic fuel tank with exotic engine

    Thanks for your inputs guys.

    My design is most comparable to a BD-5 (see Avatar), but it has the wet wing between two spars instead of the aluminum leading edge tanks. As for the BD-5, size is the...
  11. Integrated aerobatic fuel tank with exotic engine

    Hi,
    for my project I would like to build integrated wing tanks located between double spars (like Cirrus and Diamond but without the aluminum). The wing is is built from carbon over honeycomb and it...

    Re: Plywood stitching construction method

    I have built two ships in stitch and glue. A racing sailboat and a micro-runabout with an E-Bike drive as the propulsion.

    There is one SW available that is being used by almost everyone developing...

    Re: Raptor Composite Aircraft

    I have been developing these Diesel engines (BMW, Audi, VW, Porsche, Renault) for a few years and their increased weight is no shortcoming if the complete package is thoroughly planned.

    There is a...

    FADEC with Garmin G3X Touch

    Hi,
    for our project we would like to use a powerplant which sends the engine parameters via FADEC. All sensors are buried inside and are not really accessible.

    The Garmin G3X Touch has a FADEC...
