Well it did just what you said. 90 HP is all you need to beat em.
You even cleaned up on the fire breathers. Must be the Oratex fabric.
Like to see a video.
Send the fenders to Texas. We can use them when we go to Oklahoma.
Congrads on the PA11. We can use all of them we can get.
Looks great. I can't tell the difference flying wood or metal, but sure was fun building the wood wings. Wouldn't mind doing it again.
That is what is so great about expermental. You can do it anyway you want, there is no right or wrong.
For me, half the fun is playing with all the new gadgets. Great job Bill, Hope to see you this...
I was using the old orig Lightspeed electronic that had a exposed circuit board that sat right behind the prop and had a sensor mounted to it. Then there was a little magnet mounted to a plate on the...
If you don't choke the cylinder, when you get up to temp, you will be running reverse choke. The top expands more than the bottom.
Been running 9.5 to 1 for 8 years in one plane and 20 hr in another. At 10:1 the fuel burn is lot faster than in a low compression engine and the timing should be set at about 20 deg. I got about 20...
Grove sells them.
Great looking plane and a really great feeling when it finally comes to life. Have fun.
I have 2" numbers. They never even want to see a pilots license. I asked why, and they said they were not responsible for enforcing CAA laws. They could care less.
Vinyl sticks fine to Oratex. Have all the trim and nose art being done now for N3150P. Will post picts when done.
Now only have N numbers and Experimental on plane.
The proof is in the pudding as they say, "dammed if I know what that means". You got to try it and then you are like a preacher on a soap box or a reformed smoker.
If you still want to squirt some...
Grant, a 1/4" should not hurt you at all. Should have almost that much play in the ribs.
Jim, if you go with the PA11 style spars, got a extra new fuselage hanging in the shop.
I checked all mine, but they are all too short.
I woke up and the dream was over
There are no right or wrong ways to do it. You will get many opinions here, and they are just that, opinions. Wood, Alum, both work great for the wings. Not much difference in weight. Did 2 PA11s,...
We use Gojo hand cleaning towels to clean bugs off the plane and prop. Didn't work on blue gas stains though.
A story "Barely" modified to bolster my self absorbed imagination and ego
Last night I lucked out and was able to buy several cases of ammo. So on the way home I stopped at the gas station...
Use Oratex fabric and you will save many times more than the servos weigh.
They are great.
If you are flying in Italy, you might want to know how to tell time there.
Have to change the roll servo from a SV42 to a SV52. The 42 almost did it, but not quite, too much slip. Also have to change the McMaster-Car 50 rpm 10 in/lb torque to a 25 rpm 20 in/lb torque. The...
