You have just reached that awkward stage between idea/concept development and having enough detailed design work finalized to start making parts. At this stage there just isn't all that much progress that can be shown in a post. I'm pretty sure I'm not the only one that likes the look of your project and is looking forward to seeing the kind of progress that can be put into pictures! So even though your thread may remain dormant for a while please don't let it die. There are a few more of us that are interested in doing some worthwhile model testing. I found some threads here on HBA that are related. I haven't read them, or their links in detail but I intend to as time permits. http://www.homebuiltairplanes.com/f...s-new-technology/5459-dynamic-similarity.html http://www.homebuiltairplanes.com/f...ls-accuarely-predict-full-scale-behavior.html http://www.homebuiltairplanes.com/f...ns/4953-r-c-model-prototype-test-methods.html I'd like to see one of these threads revived for more discussion about using scale models as development tools.
