wow.. only 3x450g/m? I am using 2x 4 layers of 450g/m2
1x225 + 3x450 is exactly 4mm. that is sufficient for a mold that is 70 cm wide and about 3m long (that for wing: I have huge flaps and slat, so main airfoil is narrow, and I have additional wingtips-some kind of winglets)
fuselage is complex in shape so that complexity gives some rigidity to the mold structure as well. There would be some local reinforcements and ribs/longerons if necessary.
The question is size of the mold and potential further purpose: would you go for one demolding (prototype) or many (serial production)...
I will be happy for my molds to survive 5 demoldings for other I dont care (I could make new in that case)... I would say 8x450 - that is 8-9mm, is too much for homebuilt application, 5-6 x 450 is more appropriate - my oppinion; but again, all my designs are small so skinnier molds fit as well.
oh, I just recognized interesting lapsus in the first post: well, never drink bear! Try beer instead.
Pour me a frosty mug of polar beer.
DangerZone, I am very curious to hear more about the design flaw in the FlyNano. Might you be so kind as to explain what exactly you are referring to? I would love to hear any other opinions here too!
I would have thought it was obvious ... DZ said "The FlyNano has a serious design flaw for an amphibian", and I guess the design flaw is its complete lack of wheels. An amphibian needs floats (or floating hull) AND wheels
link is not working, but you get the idea, it's out there and can be done...
Haha, oh yeah. A brilliant first post for danko!
