Re: Thrust Line & Bellyboard
I made my belly board from several plys of bid to about 1/8"
thickness. At 550 hours of usage it shows no sign of fatigue. I
deploy it for every landing. Board is about 10" x 10".

Yes, that would give it a better contour. If a composite engineercould offer a carbon fiber layup schedule, that would be great.
Otherwise, some of us newbies will not be able to duplicate the 6-
pack. Aircraft Spruce says the carbon fiber bid is .007 thick. I am
calculating that I would need about 12-13 layers. I can get 12
pieces from 1 sq. yd. of bid. I may have to "wing" it.
done, then dig
out the foam per plans. I have now idea about the orientation.Maybe one
of our composite engineers could chime in.1/8" foam,
then vacuum bag the layup. Any idea on orientation of the carbonfiber
cloth, i.e., front to back, side to side, 45 deg. ? I have neverused
carbon fiber cloth. Should it be Uni or Bid?<http://us.ard.yahoo.com/SIG=129lkt5td/M=298184.6018725.7038619.300117
