The more the better!Shall we ask guys from here Projects - Airframe & conceptual design - Nieuwenhuize Engineering
How much they want for their excel slreadsheet and some trainng ? And make a group buy.
But - i will test some pieces of mine cf for buckling resistance. Truss is are truss still.
Both.I am still a bit confused.
Is PE polyester or another form of polyethylene?
self adhesive film
I'll be trying self adhesive stretchy film on the next mold. Doing tool paths for a 4 part mold set for a large UAV fuselage right now. Working my way up to full size.
I've been doing this for a few years with great success. Especially for big, light parts (aircraft), this saves tens of thousands of dollars on moulds that'd otherwise be necessary. Pretty easy to get a perfect outside surface with infusion, compared to one-shot infusion with sandwich cores and all.This might be worth a look. The pictures aren't very telling but the text in the section called "A focus on Manufacturability" is interesting if you read between the lines:
A small Swiss company has developed a fast and easily deployed manufacturing method for producing a competition-worthy rigid hang glider.www.compositesworld.com
Isn't the 43 series what Schweizer used on the 1-26 glider? Bob?To see Mr. Riblett really roll, mention the 43013...
Yes it is.Isn't the 43 series what Schweizer used on the 1-26 glider?

There are a whole lot of us out there that can cheerfully verify the good flying qualities and relative safety of the old 1-26. I'm not aware of any Riblett-equipped glider with any better reputation than the little 1-26. A lot of gliders go faster and further, but very few of them fly any better.
