    Airplane Wanted Wanted - Quickie Q1 Project

    Lol, search tempest was great before they got sued. The old standard of using: site:craigslist.org [search term] into your search engine will give you results without the ads. It isn't geo limited.

    Airplane Wanted Wanted - Quickie Q1 Project

    That's a lot of assumptions in a single post. You are obviously an angry boomer (who else would still use search tempest?) that is only here for forum sliding. Begone troll.

    But why are you so mad?

    Airplane Wanted Wanted - Quickie Q1 Project

    I am missing the point of this. I said that I was looking for something flying or previously flying as a first choice. I know that construction details are always suspect but you can tell a lot from build logs, receipts, and the quality of the work done. I said that an owner was disappointed...

    Airplane Wanted Wanted - Quickie Q1 Project

    The Onan weighed about 80 pounds. 1/2 VW's have been tried but I have read that they cause too much disturbance for the rudder.

    The Onan was horizontally opposed. Otherwise, your statements are 100% on point.

    Airplane Wanted Wanted - Quickie Q1 Project

    The Honda clone is probably the best route. I read watched a video about an owner's disappointment going with a 2 stroke. Starting from plans is an option but I figured if someone had one then I could get a head start. Finding a flying or previously flying specimen is challenging too. One...

    Airplane Wanted Wanted - Quickie Q1 Project

    I figured that I'd toss this out there. Does anyone know of a Q1 project? Preferably Southern US.

    That Cherokee looks like it's been through hell. I wonder how FlightAware said it's last flight was June of this year. That level of corrosion doesn't happen in 3 months.

    EAA No Longer Has Free SolidWorks

    SE is a good tool. I haven't had as much exposure to it as I have SW and Inventor but I know it is very powerful. It is used a lot in the aerospace industry.

    EAA No Longer Has Free SolidWorks

    Could be, I'm senior class of 98 and I learned on a drafting board also. It was a big deal when we got to do a pen and ink drawing for a couple of projects.

    EAA No Longer Has Free SolidWorks

    I'll probably give the new version a demo but I don't intend to use an online tool for my design work. This isn't the EAA's fault. From my perspective, Dassault probably listened to someone who said that an online tool would reach a ton more users. If the educational version is completely...

    This just keeps getting worse...

    EAA No Longer Has Free SolidWorks

    Is Fusion360 still free? I've been a die hard SW user since 2001 so I haven't researched alternatives.

    I'm not sure of your location but there's a Piet project in Austin for $1k that has a disassembled A65 on barnstormers

    Video series on TIG welding thin wall aircraft tubing

    I just looked up my nearest EAA tech counselor to see if someone local can give me some welding pointers. The closest is Leonard Millholland.

    I like this one too

    Plywood fuel tanks

    That seems like a reasonably simple tool to build, it is just a clamshell. You could pour the baffles first and rough up the surface in order to get a good bond but this would add complexity to the process and could cause headaches in getting the material to flow. My preference would be to not...
