    Express-Aircraft purchased, finally

    Man, that sucks :(

    CNC stuff.

    :) This is true. While I have the software, stepper motors and much of the extrusion necessary, I've move something like 4 times, had one child and have another on the way. It's all I can do to keep slow progress going on my KR2S, I've not had the time nor the money to throw at the CNC rig for...

    Subaru 4cyl engine CAD model

    I have to admit, I've been a little slack :gig: I got it mostly done, but I got sidetracked into working on the mount once I had enough of it done to get an accurate guide to fit it. I've been pretty busy with babies and work to get much else done, but I've amassed quite a collection of small...

    Is this just the tip of the iceberg?

    It's simple really. The Cirrus design does not have ANY demonstrable spin recovery ability. Even the POH states that in the event of a spin the only recovery procedure is to pull the BRS, not much of a "recovery" at all. Any aircraft that cannot be recovered from even the most basic spin using...

    Jet enigne idea

    Goody, If I've got it right, you want to combine the operations of the pulsejet with turbojet like augmentation. Pulse jets take a specifically sized combustion and exhaust sections. the sizes of them are determined to provide a specific resonance required for operations. the length and...

    Hydraulic or elecric for a prop?

    6 times faster??? that's quite a speed difference. I'm still looking at a four bladed unit, so I expect to be a little out of pocket when it comes time, a 6 month waiting list is not so bad when I'm looking at 4-5 years until I'm ready to mount it. Who knows once we get settled again (yes we...

    Hydraulic or elecric for a prop?

    Thanks for that John. :D I've pretty much settled on the MT, I'll have to admit I've not even heard of East Euro Props before, but I'll be sure to approach with caution if I do.

    Actually yes, I did intend on using a pulsejet in that particular aircraft. It seems though my initial speed expectatrions were a touch optimistic, other than that it would be a hoot!

    Is it wide enough yet?

    If I get performance anything like what has been simulated here in X-Plane I'll be very happy! :ban: So this is how 210HP goes on the nose of a KR2S...BTW that's 150KIAS at 58% throttle:gig:

    Is it wide enough yet?

    Heh, I like the MT props, what can I say :D I did move the lights outboard a little, they were only just outside the prop arc, should be better now.

    Is it wide enough yet?

    OK Here it is, 44"wide at the shoulder. This model has be built up exactly as defined in Rhino, airfoils and all and I have to say it performs as expected. :ban: Now to get my **** together and get moving. I have a place and a plane to build! :D

    Maiden Voyage!!! IFR, 100' & Rain!

    Does this mean you'll be putting the tin plane aside for some sleek and sexy composite number?:roll:

    Back but busy

    Thanks mate! :D Actually it's Mrs Bancks, Mackenzie is her middle name. :) I'm not so sure about the work factor since she was born by Ceasarian Section due to essential hypertension and eclampsia, the pre-eclampsia went undetected due to the B.P. medications concealing the symptoms of the...

    Back but busy

    Actually it was closer to 9 months go, she came 6 weeks early. :)

    Back but busy

    :D It was placement of the "engine" that got me here in the first place...;) Currently ruinning on expected range of 4 hrs to 3Oz of booby juice. Upgrades to more substantial fuels pending development, but from past experience they tend to generate an increase in exhaust deposits and higher...

    But will it fly?

    Having been down the custom chopper road many years back, I can look at these bikes and drool. the cool factor would be HUGE! However would I own and ride one? I don't think so. I've long since graduated to the insanely fast and uber powerful sportsbike fraternity. Gimme four 275cc cylinders, a...

    Back but busy

    Hey all, Been away doing busy Dad type stuff. I'll be back on and off for a while, since I'll be busy helping to look after our new arrival Brianna Mackenzie born 04/05/06 (05/04/06 for you crazy folk across the pond)

    WOW!!!!! Opinions? I'm in LOVE!!!!!!

    Interesting concept indeed. I get what they are trying to do but I too reckon they will have some interesting results from their initial testing.

    Very nice..:) I'm almost completed an X-Plane version of the Q-200 as well, I'm working on the cockpit on and off, I cannot seem to get the hang of these cocpkit object bitmaps, but what I've got so far is not half bad...:D
