    Looking for anthropometric human CAD drawing files

    I have no idea what you mean by 'artrkkhte....95%' or ... percentile .... But if you want to use my test crew just ask. I fly them over at light-speed.:) The shortest is 1.60 meter, the long one 2.00 meter. These guy's are made out of solids. (3D environment)

    Design to attract new homebuilders

    A pilot safety-cell, with attachment points according to a certain standard would be a good start. Around this cell you can build whatever you want. I'm sure we can offer plans for this cell with landing gear, instrument panel, flightcommands, fuel cell, …. and still be free to design any...

    inverting rudder pedals

    This is what we are doing with the rudder pedals today. We could mount rudder pedals on a bike and see wat's best. The system used all over the world ore the reversed one ?

    inverting rudder pedals

    If we compare planes with all other moving machines, the pedals are reversed from the traditional way. Besides that, all the other reasons you mentioned are more important than a few pounds and a 'more logic way' of doing things. Could applying left and right brakes have anything to do with...

    inverting rudder pedals

    I have the same experience. On earth we drive cars and bikes and ride horses. Ones in the air, if we want to turn, we need to do the opposite. For me, there is nothing natural about the way that rudder pedals work. I even can't rule out that in a moment of stress I push the wrong pedal for a...

    inverting rudder pedals

    Is it wise to invert rudder direction? As I prefer a steerable nose-wheel even on a part103, the normal setup for rudder commands has a weight and complexity penalty compared to a setup with inverted rudder direction. OK, the pilot can adapt these inverted rudder pedals but if you fly with...

    Flying start war-bird replica?

    Time to pick up this 4 years old idea of a basic “ fit's all “ safety-cell cockpit already equipped with panel and flight commands. Two composite parts made out of carbon/Kevlar tissue and honeycomb core. The pilot on the drawing is not one of the smallest on earth. 2 meter and 115 kg...

    Honda GX race engines- 35 lbs and 25 hp

    At this moment I'm looking into a modification for the Honda CRF250. This engine witch is build for performance needs 9000 rpm for only 28.5 HP. Compare this with the claimed 26.15 HP @ 7200 rpm based upon the industrial GX series and a smaller displacement, carburetor, fixed ignition, 2...

    I think I want a Falcon? Need opinions...

    I have been very lucky this week as a Falcon XP was up for sale not that far from my place. Being a 'canard' enthusiast for years I could not resist and the bird has found a new home. A first inspection shows the original covering that needs to be replaced and the front wing has some...

    Who is building/wanting a USA Part 103, or a Light Sport, or a Experimental?

    Still not giving up the idea of building a Part103 for the real men amongst us. (7 foot, 250 lbs) It's a pity I hit the wall while looking for extended range with a direct drive 4-stroke engine. There is a solution for the engine on the way, I hope to get back on track for the Part103 as soon...

    Re: Possible new directions for the 2 stroke, looking to overcome reliability concern Sorry 'dude', but the first name you mentioned in your OP was mine, so excuse me if I took part in your discussion. You have mentioned twice my engine, in your OP and in your post 8. Can you point me to...

    Possible new directions for the 2 stroke, looking to overcome reliability concerns ?

    Re: Possible new directions for the 2 stroke, looking to overcome reliability concern You can also ask the money you lost as a result of his activity. But, if it's really a non profit organization, they probably don't have the money to pay for the damage.

    Possible new directions for the 2 stroke, looking to overcome reliability concerns ?

    Re: Possible new directions for the 2 stroke, looking to overcome reliability concern In that case your competitor patent was worthless. The only legitimate patent holder was Nippondenso (or Hitahi) and for them, Ross was not big enough to waste time and money.
