    Stupid bloody comment. No pun intended.

    Raptor Composite Aircraft

    I read with interest all your comments. I assume you all have pilots licenses but how many of you have a degree in Aeronautical Engineering? My guess, none of you. Maybe Peter doesn't either but he's having a go at building a somewhat different aircraft. At least he's not having a go at your...

    Pod & Boom ; the folding prop integrated Around the boom

    G'day mate, no I didn't get round to building it. Too busy with slowly restoring my Thruster.

    Converting Sail Cloth a/c to standard fabric covering?

    G'day Rob.I'm in the same position as you with my Truster type T84. Had it gifted to me because the Dacron sails were rotten. It's been stored for over 11 years but all is well except the sails. A full new set cost about the same in Aussie dollars so I'm experimenting with a cheaper way to...

    Pod & Boom ; the folding prop integrated Around the boom

    I design such a system (minus folding prop) see my post Development of a dream. images start on page 3. This might give you some clues.

    Shoulder wing unpopularity

    Heck, with covic - 19 and all, I'd completely forgotten about this thread. Sorry but no advance ment had been made as yet. I'll get back to it sometime soon.

    Rotax 503 Question

    No cowl needed on a 503. Just a duct to get cool air to the rear cylinder.

    Morphing Wing Technology

    Not being a wise-arse but I call that controlled twisting, not morphing. To me, morphing means to change shape (yes I know, twisting fulfills that somewhat) so here's my concept of porphing.

    What type of flying machines is this ?

    R & Y, you're stick in the present. Think outside the sphere and see the future.

    Scrappy

    I'm very surprised to see, or not to see, that nobody has mention Scrappy, a replacement for Drako By builder Mike Patey. This guys is a workaholic with a mind full of ideas to make the perfect plane for himself starting with 2 scrapped airframes. You want to know how to use carbon fibre, this...

    Keleher Lark

    aha, the Kelleher version. Lark aircraft also produce several high wings like th commander shown here. https://www.aopa.org/-/media/Images/AOPA-Main/News-and-Media/Publications/Pilot-Magazine/2018/1805/1805p_bf_budgetbuy/1805p_bf_budgetbuy_16x9.jpg

    Keleher Lark

    Are you building a high wing or mid wing version?

    Yeh, we all know how you "yanks" bastardized the English language. :grave:

    Shoulder wing unpopularity

    I see this as a high wing, not a shoulder wing

    Shoulder wing unpopularity

    Thanks for your comments guys. I'm happy to have started a conversation subject for you. As faciful as it is, I will continue to model it for my own enjoyment and yours. BJC, spars come next. Nothing as fancy at the real thing but perhaps a bit different to allow for my morphing control...

    Shoulder wing unpopularity

    Update. As complex as my wing is, this is my first attempt to model something more realistic. This is based on a Clark Y profile. Looks good, donnit!

    Shoulder wing unpopularity

    Sorry Ir27, I didn't get the connection. As for the wing profile, I didn't waste time on drawing something authentic.

    Shoulder wing unpopularity

    Jedi, not a model yet, just a 3D drawing. I have tried to model the wings but will have to start again as the first attempt was a dismal failure. Ir27 and Cfred, your comments may well be valid but I'n not going away from this basic design, workable or not. This is where 2 threads cross over...
