RE: Pusher AP plane build thread

I should add, if you invert the engine and move the mount higher on the firewall, you'll get the crank shaft higher up and get more prop clearance that way too. Probably a couple of inches. The carb...

RE: Pusher AP plane build thread

Congratulations Mike,

You did a great job building and flying that plane. I've seen factory designed trainers that didn't do that well on a maiden flight. It looked very solid but did seem to be...

RE: Pusher AP plane build thread

Well, you'll be at the upper end but still OK I believe. If you topped out at 11 pounds you will have a wing loading of 28.18 ounces per square foot. You're in the loaded cargo plane category but not...

RE: Pusher AP plane build thread

It sounds like you'll be OK weight wise. 900 square inches devided by 144 = 6.25 square feet of wing. 8.5 pounds = 136 ounces. 136/6.25 = 21.76 ounces per square foot wing loading.

According to...

RE: Pusher AP plane build thread

Flaperons would be cool if you have the radio for it. I would like to do the same thing but I can't spare the channel. Enough pitch up on approach and mine sinks pretty good and slows down though so...

RE: Pusher AP plane build thread

I would tend to agree with Mike's concerns. If it was my plane I would do all the initial test flights without co-pilot. I would focus on trims, flight characteristics, testing surface deflection for...

RE: Pusher AP plane build thread

Yes I do. It should fly like it's on rails. Getting nervous is OK too. If you didn't the thrill would be gone.

RE: Pusher AP plane build thread

Ooooo, nice.:D That looks very good. It will be easy to spot. I like scale coloring like that. My next big plane is going to get a US Forest Service color scheme.

RE: Pusher AP plane build thread

It's cheap too. I usually go a long way on a beer. :D

It looks better but sometimes there's no way to know unless you try. My initial thoughts are that the base is held in place well. But that...

RE: Pusher AP plane build thread

Hey Skycam,

Glad to see you're still in there.

Is the hinge fixed to the airframe through the slide tray? The blue line looks to me like the only direction of vibration dampening. I got a...

Ahhh, crap. I keep checking here to see what it looks like. Take your time though. I'm just excited about this build. I can't wait till the flawless tracks like it's on rails maiden flight. It will...

RE: Pusher AP plane build thread

Excellent,

I used Solartex fabric on my plane. It has great properties like you describe with only a small weight penalty. It's worth it being a rip stop type material. I did use Black Baron...

How's the covering coming along Skycam41? I really like that Canadian Coast Guard pattern you selected. :D

RE: Pusher AP plane build thread

I'm sure that will work for you. I have a lot less, about 10 to 15 percent maximum on my plane and the rudders are effective. It's looking real good. When do we get to fly it? huh? huh? huh? :D:D

It's coming along very nicely Skycam41. I especially like the way you tapped muffler pressure to the main landing gear for adjustable suspension. :D

Those little pieces of plywood haven't gotten...

RE: Pusher AP plane build thread

Yep, wide is good. I think you could go with either gear height wise with no trouble but the wider gear is great. I ended up on my Pegasus ordering a custom made gear to get me my height and width. I...

RE: Pusher AP plane build thread

No, I think its fine height wise. You can stick an AV antenna straight out the bottom and it will clear the ground.

The mains should be placed so the axle is on a line that intersects a line...
