Let fritzw design and build, so he doesn't feel pressured to create a raptoresque monstrosity
Hmm, it would be difficuklt to replce the current ultra simple Ranger AC with a 'proper' one.
Lemme redneck engineer up a redrive and we can talk
Switch it around so the tail sits under the folded wings. Fairey Firefly instead of Grumman Sto-wing.
Ahem, did you say 'engineer'?
**** spellcheek dun mussed up my good speekin! EngAneir
I think this folding wing design was posted by one of our members a few years back and maybe
of some interest for the Ranger wing fold
Narrow centre section which looks ideal
Well yes, I think he did. Anyone that can run a train can build an engine -n- PSRU.....
I did say "redneck engineer" I live in the country, I got some good John deer junk around here lol
Hey Fritz, how far has the Ranger grown so far?
Alas, not much. It's June in southern New Mexico, I have to wear a proximity suit to go out to the garage. By the time I get home it's just too blooming hot to do anything.
A friend moved from where I am now to NM. The temperature is no improvement, but the far lower humidity makes it much more bearable.
The average humidity in South Carolina is in the 70's and 80's with temperatures steadily in the upper 80's and 90's plus. In the late afternoon, it may drop to the 50's but by then, all energy and desire to do anything is long gone ! I have a lot of friends that can't wait until summer because they swarm to the beaches. Give me the mountains and Fall anytime !
I'm in North Carolina. So I feel your pain, but not quite so badly
And you all think we're crazy to live in California....
Yes, I think that you are crazy to live (stay) in California. But not because of the weather there.
Yeah, the good weather kind of balances out some of the other nonsense
We are on the final steps for a flying prototype, thank Fritz.
I’m wondering if this Ranger Concept could be extrapolated to a similar looking 2 seater?
Yes, we will all joyously encourage the 2 seat version (and the gyroplane version, and the VTOL version, and the crop duster, and the stealth version, and the all-weather rail-mounted armed COIN ground attack version).... AFTER the original version is finished and being built by thousands of happy homebuilders.
