Percy,`Evening, Mr. Crow - we seem to be hearing a lot from each other lately! Good thing as I am a Social Butterfly. Wife calls me on it all the time...
Yes, I have a carcus of a LePelican. Have worked on it, but now may be loosing my hangar space.
I have the wings, which are the most pivotal part. The span is 37 feet, and they are made from sheet aluminum instead of tubes.
Also have fuselage, rudder and gear. I have a -042 4-cycle engine that I have (sorta) fitted. Can PM with pictures, etc. K?
Hi, I couldn't find plans to download, only some YouTube videos, photos and some EBay offer.I just came across this little bird and really like it. ( you know how some planes just set right with you )
I couldn't find out much info on it other than it WAS a kit at one time. Has any one flew one or heard any negative things about this plane? This little bird just might fit the bill.View attachment 86552
Rub on a small noncritical spot with some Scotchbright. If it's 2024 there is a good chance it's Alclad and you can see a difference between the 2024 and the 1100 skin once you rub through. My guess is it's 2024 rather than 6061. Other airplanes of the same era and construction type were 2024.I do not know the alloy, b7g. NDT way to tell?
If you could beg, burrow etc one of the hand held XRF metal analyzers lik emost of the scrap yards etc you syou could find out in a big hurry."I would love to reverse engineer it to put all the parts in CAD."
With an airplane, Old C., "There is no such thing as far away." It is at 2J0; south of you.
Have some drawings, but the wings will be problematic. Speaking of...
I do not know the alloy, b7g. NDT way to tell?
You should be able to see that the rivets are pulled, and a general idea. The wings are the heart of the marque. "D" tube has foam ribs, don't know how many or how far apart. Am always in the market for suggestions.
