Hello Everyone,
I'm looking for Bruce Carmichael's "Personal Aircraft Drag Reduction Book". Anyone have one they want to sell? I'll take the Hollman books too if anyone has them around.
Thank you,
Justin

The first edition of the Carmichael book was pretty rough. Watch for a later one. Supposedly the pictures were much better.

I have the book "Low Power Laminar Aircraft Design" from Alex Strojnik for sale (third edition, 1993), for $30.

@drgondog I did pick that one one up recently. I'm partway through, it's quite technical so sometimes it's easier for me to start with the layman stuff then go to the equations next.

@Map I'll take the Strojnik book and pm you for your info

Thank you everyone! I'd still like to get the Carmichael book just to have.

The Strojnik book is a little off center but the content is solid. The drag and lift accounting and the Shrenk method with examples is quite good. I have all three.

Hoerner is really the bible.
