    Although it is probably insignificant in our use, helical springs in torsional loading should be designed so that the normal loading of the spring causes it to wind up and thus produce tensile stress...

    I don't think it is just you. I have been having the same problems. Although I can't pinpoint when it started, I can say that it was recent. Incredibly long page loading.

    If the plans are in .pdf, .jpg, etc., you can open them in Photoshop, and then 'flip-horizontal' and get a plan for the reverse wing. I suspect that many Kinko's or other places can do this for you...

    Alex - I think that Dan has AutoCAD Release 14, not AutoCAD 2014. These are two different programs and may not work the same with Windows 10. I do know that Autodesk no longer supports any version...

    I don't know if any version of AutoCAD later than 2000 has made the status...

    Since the cam shaft rotates exactly half the speed of the crankshaft, it seems to me that alignment of the dot at the bottom would also work. Just sayin'.

    Is that with the airplane level, or is it with the tailwheel on the ground? Where did you find the rule you cited?

    I don't know that I have ever heard this expressed as a percentage. I believe that the less weight on the tailwheel, the better the high-speed handling. I am usually satisfied if the aircraft, if...
