Getting back into the hobby after a 10 year hiatus. I want to convert my Futaba 12Z to 2.4ghz and this module appears to no longer be in production. Please let me know if you are able to part with...

RE: Rollin' my own 50CC Yak 54

Aviomac and Haikt,

That's some very impressive work! I have been dabbling on a couple designs here and there since last posting on this thread but haven't had much time to complete them. I've...

RE: Scratch Build Graphics Tools

I'll weigh in on this 3D vs 2D.

We all tend to stick to things we are accustomed to using or doing. For those that grew up on 2D drafting, many prefer it. I taught myself how to use autocad...

RE: Looking for a cad guy for hire

Stealth,

I might be able to help you out and even provide an assembled 3D representation in a standard file using Solidworks. What exactly is it that you need to be done? Check out my "Rollin'...

RE: Edge 540 in 33% scale

I believe I mocked up a DA100 in solidworks a while back. I'll hunt around for it later. May take me a while since I am on vacation for a week starting tomorrow.

Joefroooo, you interested in...

RE: Rollin' my own 50CC Yak 54

I haven't used ACad since the 2007 version I believe so I don't have any experience with its lofting capabilities (2007 had rudimentary lofting built in). But, if you can get your hands on a student...

Yep, still out there...

But, been so drained from work, working on designs isn't in the cards these days. I actually have my 100CC Yak55 ready but need to create the cut sheets which is mind...

RE: Rollin' my own 50CC Yak 54

Under no circumstance should even attempt to scale up the eYak. It would break apart into a million pieces with a DL50!

The airframe gets stressed a lot more at that larger scale and it was...

RE: Rollin' my own 50CC Yak 54

NM,

I create the solid model first. Then I shell it into 'skins'. I then create planes where I need the ribs or formers and use the "intersection curve" command in solidworks to create the...

RE: Rollin' my own 50CC Yak 54

Hi everyone,

I've lost touch with this thread due to crazy work hours. Decided to check it out and lo and behold there is still activity!

I am still not ready to release the 50cc Yak...

RE: DL 50 Carb on DA 50...It Works!

There is still a bit of a mid-range burble but not as noticeable as before. I don't have the DL carb number handy. The major difference, esthetically, is that the venturi is a bit smaller than the...

DL 50 Carb on DA 50...It Works!

Not sure if this has been posted before somewhere else.

I figured I would let people who were wondering know that a DL 50 carb works great on a DA 50. My DA 50 has never run right...lots of...

RE: Laser cutter recommendation

CooseBay,

He does do "a great job" and that takes into account wood, turn around time and general customer service. You are correct that they all typically have access to the same equipment but...

RE: Rollin' my own 50CC Yak 54

To hide the extruded fuse, right click on it either in the history tree at the left of your screen and choose "hide" or just simply on the fuse itself and choose hide from the options that pop up.

RE: Rollin' my own 50CC Yak 54

Create a plane where you want formers and create a new 2d sketch on the plane. Use "intersection curve" command and click around the fuse. It will draw lines where the fuse intersects the plane. ...

RE: Rollin' my own 50CC Yak 54

Lookin' good Gleb,

My best lofting tip is this:

I usually loft the same fuse at least twice before I am happy. I'll explain. Essentially, the first draft is fairly rough and once I get it...

RE: Warbird Airfoil Suggestions?

Judging by the 3view wing cross sections I am working with, there appears to be washout in the full-scale wing. I knew that I wanted to build some in but never really thought about a more blunt...
