Hi Ricardo & Steve,
Unfortunately I need the 5/8” H45. Thanks for the response though!

Re: R/H45 Foam

 

Matt, I just checked our stock here at AeroComposites and Greg and I do have some of the H45 foam in  5/8.  
How big of a piece do you want?

Does anyone have some extra 5/8” R45/H45 foam that they’d like to sell? I only need a few square feet and A/C Spruce doesn’t have any in stock. I have a couple holes in my Defiant fuselage that I’d like to plug.

Hello,

Looking for some pictures of a throttle quadrant installation that is using the Kevin Walsh style throttle quadrant levers (boomerang shaped). A view with the push pull cables installed would be very helpful.
Thanks,

Volunteers needed for warbird build project !

 

Hello. My sponsor, mr. Ron Jones, from ThunderBird Aviation Michigan, http://www.thunderbirdaviationmi.com/
wants to build me a full scale P-51D Mustang Replica airframe and he wants to donate it (offer it free of charge) for static display into my aviation museum project (Bucharest Aerospace Museum - search for it).
 
Can you help him with some work as volunteers, with some small bits of money for materials etc. ??? If you agree, I can send you his phone number. 
 
Thanks again.

I would move the wheel pants a little higher and make sure you have plenty of side clearance.  When I changed to Goodyear tires, one of the screws that attaches the front part of the wheel to the rear part of the wheel pant, SCORED the tire!!!!!!

Try boat building supply companies. They sell Divinicell. Only thing is that they will sell full sheets.

Re: [c-a] VE/LE rollover structure

Sam Holman
 

Hi Charles,

Of course, you are totally correct about reverse engineering.  I just remember the transition to carbon fibre really allows racing to continue in a very safe manner to this day  The glass fibre structures we have in Rutan's designs have proven to be strong in slower-moving accidents much better than the spam cans.  Material science has come a long way in our lifetimes.  I seem to have too much time so when I found the last article I forgot that F1 went directly to carbon fibre.  It must have been fun to have been part of the story.  The craftsmanship of the structures you made set a standard that many of this newsletter aim for and achieve.  The early photos we saw from Hercules Inc. were and are an inspiration to this day.  You can have a chuckle when I tell I manufacture the first maple bats used in the MLB market.  

Now you may have a chuckle when I tell you I manufacture the first maple bats sold into the MLB,  Sam

Hi Sam,

I worked for Hercules Inc. as a composites manufacturing engineer when we built the first tubs. A lot of engineering went into the total design, and a lot of testing was done as the Aluminum guys thought it was crazy. The design was proven in the first crash.

However retrofitting an existing design efficiently would require quite a bit of testing on a mock-up to make sure it would function as envisioned. Good luck with the effort.

Interesting video.



One might reflect that in such racing, it's not if an accident will

happen, it's when.  One might also hope that flying and EZs is a bit

less risky.



Regardless, it's still a question of when, not if, for flying also.

Proof is, it's already happened, more than once.



I would not advocate the same structure in an aircraft.  One reason is

that in a race, crash equipment is there, and ready to roll, right now.

No crash equipment when someone goes down in a corn field.  People need

to exit a crashed aircraft, ASAP.



I'd also suggest that existing canard aircraft will not be getting a

rebuild with autoclaved carbon fiber.



Could a new design have much better designed in crash protection?  I'm

pretty sure it could.  Maybe such will happen, someday.



Always good to consider new ideas.
