RE: TopFlite DC-3/C-47 questions

It's hard to give an average number, but I can tell you that it is a relatively long build. You should definitely be a person who enjoys building to consider this plane. It has many build "extras",...

RE: a wee question regarding 3 views

What format are they in? What formats does deltacad accept?

If you're talking about a non-vector graphic format (like jpg, gif, bmp, etc.), then it really isn't possible to import into a CAD...

RE: INCREDIBLE PLANE ! LOOK !

Aw geez, let's not start another war.

It would be easy for someone to simply say Airbus or the European regulators have higher standards- no way to answer that question within an absolute...

RE: 3D swept forward wing????

Forward sweep refers to the angle of the mean aerodynamic center line, not the LE or TE.

When both the LE and TE sweep forward, you know the mean aero. center line is also forward.

RE: 3D swept forward wing????

I'm missing something...

The Edge 540 has a forward sweep (other 3D planes have a neutral to forward sweep, too), as it helps per LouW's post.

I guess it's a matter of degree for a more...

RE: Propellor Mustang P-51

You might want to post this in the scale forum if you haven't already. There are scale props (for static display only) out there on the market.

RE: Ideas on working slats...???

You might consider using air cylinders- a very small one would do the trick- but only if you already have an air system on board.

And I would go with the idea of using a couple of long rods...

RE: Hobby shops in Kalamazoo Michigan

Bill,

If you aren't already planning it, you MUST go to the Air Museum on the airport ("Air Zoo" I believe they call it). They have a very nice fleet of aircraft, many in flying condition. I...

RE: Lanier Yak

Anyone put a Moki 2.10 in this thing? Think it will work? It's a big plane, but 5 hp and 25 lbs. should be enough, no?

I imagine I'd run into balance issues...

RE: Ziroli DC-3

Nothing out there 1/6... the Ziroli 1/8 is proven. I am scratch designing/building a 1/7 scale, just to be a bit bigger, so don't one-up me!!! :D

RE: Radio South Pro driver III How many starts ?

It will burn off excess fuel only to a small extent, really. The great thing, though, is that if the engine is flooded, you will see more than the typical 3 or 4 green lights lit- you will know it...

RE: TopFlite DC-3/C-47 questions

0.5 oz. or 0.75 oz. fiberglass suits this plane beautifully, especially over those much to thin skins on the outboard wing sections. Added weight is very minimal, and was not an issue for my plane...

Steve,

You might consider Nero Ultra. It's an easy and powerful tool; it will handle all your video/audio/data needs for a long time to come. About $100.

RE: INCREDIBLE PLANE ! LOOK !

Wow, that DOES look quite squirrelly for such a big plane... wonder if there was no ballast and it had a particularly light wing loading at the time.

RE: INCREDIBLE PLANE ! LOOK !

Really, though, do you view Enron as an example of how capitalism is bad or just plain ol' corruption? I say you'll find Enrons in any socio-political system... in some...
