RE: Ugly Stik dimensions needed for a COX Medallion 09
once upon a time I put all the formulas I knew into an excel spreadsheet, makes figuring this stuff easy. I know nothing about excel and so it is a terrible spreadsheet, otherwise I'd share it. But, sometimes even Iget confused where the inputs go, and if you put it in the wrong blank you can accidentally alter the formula. I know you can protect a cell, somehow, and I'd also like it to "zero out" when I'm done. As it is, I just make sure and always click "no" when it asks do Iwant to save changes.
Anyway, to your point. I just made up some numbers for your project that sounded "about right" to me. So you can see in the little snippit I will post If I input the original plans wing area, and input what you want the new plans wing area to be, it will give you a scale factor to use as a multipler. On the next line it will do the math so if you put in the actual plans wing span, or any other dimension, it will give the new dimension. I have a lot of other formulas built into the spreadsheet, like figuring wing area, prop load, conversion from metric to ase...blah, blah, blah. So I can put in a 10X6 pro and it will give an approximate prop load, then I can go to another line, put in that prop load and tell it Iwan to use a 9" prop instead, and it will give a pitch number to approximate that load.
These are all just formulas I've found in books and magazines, I'm certainly no whiz at this stuff.
Almost forgot, let me know the area of the plan you have, and what you want, and I'll plug them in for you. What I posted would be pretty typical of what I would probably do, assuming that's about the area of the plan you have.
