Scott, I had a quick look at your website the other day. A very Hurricane-esque fuselage! 4.8x8 wheelbarrow tires are very close to scale. I'm really tempted to use rigid gear, which would facilitate retracts. Lightweight teles are a pain to improvise. Maybe after I fold rigid ones... I was clearing out some junk earlier and an old office chair was chucked out, then I had 2nd thoughts and extracted the gas spring thing. It still has a hefty bracket to cut off one end, but it looks like it might be useful. If it is, I'll wait for goodwill to have a matching pair... Scale prop would be 86", but that reduces clearance by 4", so 78" is as big as I'd go. Ideally, that would want 2000rpm if can manage 40hp. Yes, I'll need an airspeed sensitive throttle to stay legal. I scaled one of those draewings to 1:25 and had a go at working out pilot position. It's really, really tight. I need to decide how long the engine will be and build a cardboard cockpit before committing to 2/3. Doesn't help that I'm 6'6"... A very quick look at tail loads and coro might work as a stressed skin with no spars on fuse, fin and stab! I need to do hinge loads and do it much more accurately. I have a spreadsheet that works out 2nd moment of area for hollow airfoils now. If I can do monocoque everything behind the pilot, that saves a lot of fiddly and weighty framework, to mitigate all that coro. I have another bending idea to try for small radii. The tail airfoils look like 8% for the fin, 12% for the elevator on the drawing. I'll likely go fatter 00xx unless someone has a better idea?
