    RE: Knowledge Quiz for Warbird wiz

    To make that clear, I referred to the statement "and NOT used on Aircraft". The question was already correct answered on the first page...

    RE: Knowledge Quiz for Warbird wiz

    I was just agreeing with Silvereagle, as I am familiar with using this item, the one in the pic you posted.
    I have been looking for a picture of this supressor mounted on a .50 Cal, in a P-38. Can you post a pic of it for me, thanks. I saw the the pic you previously posted, and was wondering if you had a closeup.

    RE: Knowledge Quiz for Warbird wiz


    ORIGINAL: wingspar

    Boeing held the patent for the gear. Curtis had to ''pay'' boeing for the rights to use it.

    As for what Unique about Boeing? I could probably come up with 100 different answers to that one.

    Dave

    Correct wingspar!! The unique thing is that Boeing designed the gear, but never used it on any of their own production aircraft. The only Boeing designed aircraft to use it was the R4360 powered Boeing F8B fighter built at the end of WW2 Only prototypes were built.

    RE: Knowledge Quiz for Warbird wiz

    OK, my third and final question so I'll make it alittle harder.

    What is this and what did it do??

    Hint: To my knowledge this gave this plane a unique feature from all others in WW2

    Is it the Walter HWK 509A Rocket Engine that powered the ME-163?

    Auto mixture + prop pitch. The pilot only had to select the throttle setting. Mixture and appropriate pitch were automatically maintained by the control.

    RE: Knowledge Quiz for Warbird wiz

    Its a kommandogerat. It was a mechanical system (more of a computer), which regulated rpm, prop pitch, timing, blower speed all in relation to altitude. It was a very advanced design that reduced the amount of work the pilot had to do by quite a bit. Of course Americans that flew the Fw 190 hated it because it took away some of the granualrity they were used to.

    That one in particular is for White 1.


    Do not confuse with the same system name on a device used for auto aiming (actually predicting) of 88mm, 105mm and 128mm antiaircraft guns... This unit was called the KappagerΓ€t 40.

    RE: Knowledge Quiz for Warbird wiz

    Several reasons ,, First prop clearance for the huge Ham. Standard while allowing the shortest landing gear possible. Also to have a 90 degree join between the wing panel to fuse. which decreases turbulant airflow and drag. There may be others but I think these were the major ones.

    RE: Knowledge Quiz for Warbird wiz

    The main reason was to give the prop some ground clearance.

    To have a prop (13 feet 4 inches) clearance even with a short landing gear. The landing gear has to short and strong for carrier landings. The good fly charactaristics and the high top speed was a "byproduct".

    OK let's go for #2 here. What was a major advantage that the F-86 had over the MiG-15 in high speed maneuverability. Hint is was an important feature that allowed the Bell X-1 to go trans mach.

    RE: Knowledge Quiz for Warbird wiz

    I'm guessing it was the raised horizontal stab that got the control surfaces out of the shock wave?

    No, I guess they both had raised stabs, so was it spoilers or strip ailerons?
