RE: Another newbie Turbo Cad question

Changing between units is very easy in TCad. Just go to Options>Space Units>Units in workspace>Units and change them there. If you want the units to be converted from one to the other(1" = 25.4mm)...

RE: strip planking

I guess you're talking about sheeting and not strip planking. Actual strip planking is the best way for hard to sheet compound curves. Does take more time but can yield great results. This was my...

RE: Norseman project

Sounds like the hstab is set at to much positive incidence. Being a high wing airplane, it should probably be set a degree or so positive but 4 degrees sounds a little much for the wing being set at...

RE: O.S. 49-PI Wankel

The centrifugal force of the rotor spinning, applies more pressure to the apex seals than just what the springs are applying to them. I would rather follow OS's instructions and use fuel with 25%...

RE: Merco 4 stroke??

I have been running this engine a bit. Seems to have good power for an old open rocker 60 and idles great. All in all runs really sweet. Propped with an APC 12x8 it managed 8200 - 8300 rpm. This...

RE: Merco 4 stroke??

I was thinking that while i am waiting for some new bearings, maybe i'll measure the parts up with a micrometer and model them in 3d. Maybe Stebro did get some parts from Merco that weren't finished...

RE: Merco 4 stroke??

Hey Kmot, thanks for the bit of info. Where did you get it from? You don't know how many Stebro did, do you? Funny, i can't find anything on the internet about these Merco's.
