    3D printed Carbon Fiber Wing Ribs???

    I always enjoy on the original question morphs into many areas, and that is fine, but back to the original question--- doesn't it also beg or require the added type of rib end use? Rib for ultralight Rib for light craft, metal skin Rib for light craft, fabric Rib for skin that will be bonded...

    Aircraft for the common man, homebuilt or kit....

    Please, I am not critiquing, --- I am always interested if someone/somewhere has been able to do it before. (all designs, flying that is) For your blended design plans. So, I am wondering, is there ANY Bi-plane with 32' wings, that meet ultralight weights? Just curious. I may have missed that...

    Fuel Trailers It is up to you if you want to transfer gas with electricity. Last time I checked, 100% of all fuels have been transferred by electricity, as it could be done in this case.

    Ultimate off road aircraft Tug?

    Trying to narrow down your search? Your wanting something only 45" total in width, pulling a aircraft with a 30' wing span, through muck and bogs, and have it weigh less than 2000 pounds minus crew (2?) so maybe 1600 pounds? And if I am reading this correctly it has to be able to pull up a...

    Harley Powered Miller

    Chris.r.Ingram, in your opinion or any others if he had used a S & S case, heads, pistons and other parts, would/could or might have the suit never happened? This question based on the fact it was HD against him based on "engine purchased directly from them" I really would like to know, if...

    Harley Powered Miller

    I don't often get on a stump, but.... in this case, I must. So bear with me. Everyone like to shout about Giants causing litigation issues for many good things, but in this case there is more to it. So you (an engine builder) have this great idea, taking in a relativity inexpensive motor that...

    EAA 3DExperience.. worth it or not?

    tcbetka Has brought out some really good points, I think a lot of you on the fence should read it more than once. (probably a lot more) I have been doing solid works since 1998 or so... we have come a long ways. But a few real key points he stated are pretty simple on the outside and complex...

    Updates on the seaplane ultralight!

    Some of the greatest minds in the aircraft world have struggled to make a top notch reduction gear set up. Don't underestimate the complexity of this job alone.

    Sadler Vampire

    Are you folks saying someone owns the rights to the Sadler design? Is someone working on a design for the masses? "Working on" seems to cover from, "talking about it"- "kicking around a tube or two" to actually doing something, but often leading to a 10 year project which fades away...

    Concepts only: Doodles without numbers

    When you go from the standard (loosely said) Max type of wing of 54" cord (mini max, Hi-max, airbike, the eagles and many more) to your possibly proposed 48" cord, did you configure to lengthen the wing, to maintain lift?

    In with a bang, out with a whimper

    Very interesting subject, I wonder how many were designed to snag funds with no intentions of production? I wonder how many were designed simply based on a dream?, "they could make it better" but later found they couldn't. I wonder how many, were simply impossible to financially build? . i.e...

    Fresh frame painting? alum stringer painting?

    What are folks finding working best for a fresh airframe (media blasted to bare metal) as well as alum stringer painting. I find to many that feel a simple priming of alum parts is good enough (no top coat) And some feel that is true for the frame as well. I intend to have both top coated in as...

    Specs for a new motorglider design

    I have thought it over since this started, by truckie-d I want everything he wanted but also to take off vertically and land, as well as drive it home and put it into my garage. I want it, but am not going to get it. :pilot: But it is always nice to dream, as long as you know it is a dream...
