Have cut the firewall and timber for the main bulkheads. winter now and way to cold for glueing. am going to do all the metal work now . I am a airforce trained specialist welder and i am looking forward to this bit. cheers craig
I know that I know nothing, but, I can't find the address to your website. I came thinking it may be hidden. But still cannot find it all those other hyperlinks came up- 404 no such thing, in different words. Will you write out the address for me? BTW, the "Kitplanes" hyperlink took me to a Herpe's page in Japanese language. Sign me, I'm confused.
Don, I suggest you keep the differential throws of the ailerons as they are. My flying Taylor and the two project sitting all have an extreme amount of up deflection and only about an inch or so of down aileron. That still requires a little rudder when rolling quickly. Any less differential effect and I think you'll run out of rudder trying to deal with gusts in a crosswind on touchdown.
I am based in the UK but interested in finding out about building a plane under French RSA sign-off as it appears as if the UK LAA won't sign the plane build off.
Do you know much about the rules and requirements and what can and can't be built in France?
Would be keen to know as I suspect I might need to become an honourary Frenchman for biulding purposes
Hi Andy. In order to design the planform of my delta project, i need to obtain the spanwise lift distribution at cruise speed, over several iterated planforms until i achieve something aproximately eliptical. i am having a hard time finding papers on lift distributions that work on low AR and sweep and where the mathematical complexity is reasonable.
Would openfoam be appropiate for such a task?
Hi, my name is Grant and just read your Oshkosh post. Is this Dan? The reason I ask is the photo of Dan's plane at ATC KRNT. I assume the answer is no and believe we may have spoken once about 8 mounts ago when you were flying the plane.
You were correct in your assumption re: Mitchell Wing with 24 hp being viable. I know, I built two of them... started with a 12.5 hp McColloch engine... then an 18 hp Zenoah engine; Then a Honda Oddessy; then a 25 hp KFM. All set up in pusher configuration. All stable except Honda.. too heavy.
Had many hours of great flying fun with each one. KFM best by far of all engines flown with.
I would love a copy of Hoerner! I had a photo copy at one time but it got destroyed when the roof of the building I was in came off in a hurricane and everything got soaked.
