    Naming Parts

    A little over a year ago I asked this question and to this day I still don't have this issue sorted. I have been thinking about it on and off and have made some progress in my understanding of the issue. I now have a better understanding of what you guys were talking about. At the time of your...

    Rim Sizing

    I found 3 more useful docs, but they don't talk about my query either :(. Billski, I found some books online similar to Paz's book, but they don't talk about this either.

    Bolt Dimensions

    Yep I tried all that, the NAS ones I have cobbled some things for (admittedly, I shouldn't have asked about them, but I still got some useful info that I couldn't find), but for the AIR and the last few, nothing other than results of sites where I can buy the bolts from.

    Rim Sizing

    I've done my due diligence on both questions, I have been unable to find any useful results on Google. (For the first question, there is some info but certainly not enough for what I'm trying to do) I have seen the document that lr27 had found, and I have another one from Boeing, but I've not...

    Rim Sizing

    I'm trying to make sense of wheel rim sizing: https://www.goodyearaviation.com/resources/pdf/tire-specifications-6-2018.pdf If my understanding is correct, only the last 5 columns are related to the rim itself. 1.) Wheel (Rim)Size - what's the first number? Is that the width of the rim? The...

    How Time Pieces Work

    Hi, I'm trying to figure out how the fancy 'Aircraft Time Pieces' work :). 1.) How do airplane clocks GA and airliner clocks keep track of time? GMT doesn't change in terms of time zones, so that's the time that all other times are measured in relation to. In fact, you could probably just use...

    Please Help to Understand

    Hi, I'm reading some material in relation to propeller design and don't understand the theory. I don't understand is the vector V, why is it going from bottom to top? Shouldn't it be coming from the top of figure 1.8? Same for 2 pi r n, shouldn't rotational wind be coming from right to left...

    Looking for Brake System

    The way I created it, the reasoning behind it is actually pretty lame, I think for it to remain cool, the logic behind it is best left a mystery :).

    CA-65 - Atomic_Sheep - Discussion Thread

    Ran into another problem. Frame 3 as per attached image is 34.95in wide. To Frame 3 of the fuselage, we attach a mounting bracket and to the wing spar of the wing we attach another mounting bracket which together form a joint. However, if you make the all the pieces, the brackets don't match up...

    CA-65 - Atomic_Sheep - Discussion Thread

    Hi guys, been a while since I touched this project but decided to do some more work on it. I'm reading through the construction manual and can't figure out what flanges and what a plywood web is. This is referring to elevator and rudder ribs. Here is the image provided. I can provide a better...
