Its people like George that may have prevented Mark from sharing his last design with us...........
As the name implies (PRIVATE message), those are private, not public and thus I've removed them from your post.I was even threatened to be kicked out of the board if I say any more in the private message from Jake. I saved it because I knew where this whole thing was going, I'm posting it in full below.
Now Mark is dead.
Didn't mark actually say that was one of his favorite designs to fly??Well George, the design you were criticizing then was not the one that killed him...
Earthlings: Send more probes. The last one was delicious!
Well, we may be arguing semantics here so to use a more precise term, if your compression members aren't long columns then your wing truss is overbuilt. The failure mode for such a member should be buckling.If compression is to be seen then you wouldn't want slender members at all
