Hello all,

I practiced awaiting for two hours yesterday, touch and go at Tombstone (graveyard airport one hanger and one the wind destroyed). Surveyed some of the southern border no bollard fence yet by Bisby. Back to E95 before the wind picked up.

Whew!

Does anyone have a set of QAC 0200 baffles you would part with. I’m redoing mine and thought I would ask before I start recreating pieces. Maybe someone that had installed a plenum and don’t need them?

Thank you for the continuing replies guys. Here in Placer County, (roughly Sacramento to Lake Tahoe)
we have 97 reported cases/2 deaths. In Alameda County ( our other residence) there are 367 reported cases/12 deaths.  This is of 10:00 am April 4  

Keith really sorry to hear about your friends.

Re: Covid19

 

Uh...yes.  Our EAA Chapter treasurer whom I've known for 30+ years and his wife.
He took her into the hospital here in Terre Haute on March 18 and she died on the 26th.
She was 55 and a diabetic.  He is under quarantine for a week....grieving alone.  He is in a really bad place right now. 
The thing I came to realize is every day we hear the numbers on TV and go to bed....until one hits home.
She is the first loss in our area. 
I see this much differently now.  I see the families who have to suffer loosing a loved one and not able to be with them or say good bye or plan a funeral.
Yeah...I see this very differently now.

Re: Plans Shrinkage

Jay Scheevel
 

My thinking is that amount of difference will be insignificant. The fact that it matches the spar is a plus. The difference will be even less because of a little melt back from the hot wire as Bruce mentioned.

Cheers,
Jay

Checked BL-0 and BL-100 and compared to plans. Both are 1.5% longer in length. That's 3/16" longer @C.L.  and 1/8" on the tip template. This measured from the front of spar to LE along the level line. The spar radius seems to match perfectly...even tried the templates on the spar at their respective places. They seem to fit.

I just noticed the message title (plan shrinkage), so forgive me for butting in, especially if someone else has already offered to help, but I have a large format scanner, and if someone sent me a good "original" print and the proper dimensions, I could scan it and Photoshop it to be the correct size and convert it to a PDF for anyone to have printed locally and it would be as accurate as possible - maybe even as accurate as the draftsman intended.

What kind of percentage difference are you finding, Dustin?  If it is not large, it is probably not worth worrying about. Just so the level lines are level.

Re: FW: Video Filmed With Drones Inside The National Museum of the U.S. Air Force

Nice video Jerry! Definitely would love to see that museum in person. The person flying that drone must have been a drone racing league participant. He did an awesome job of covering the place. However, I couldn’t help but notice that the drone pilot clipped a wire at approximately 4 min 44 sec into the video. 🤔 keep em coming.

Take care,
RODNEY

Stunning videography. Amazing subjects. Impressive editing. Incredible flying skills.
Located at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, some six miles to the northeast of Dayton, Ohio, the National Museum of the United States Air Force, the official museum of the USAF, is a must see for every aviation enthusiast:  with more than 350 aircraft and missiles on display, it’s the oldest and largest military aviation museum in the world.  You can find the Boeing B-17F Memphis Belle, several Presidential aircraft, including the Boeing 707 known as a VC-137C; the Apollo 15 Command Module Endeavour; the only surviving XB-70 Valkyrie; the F-117 Nighthawk and many, many others. In fact, the Museum hosts some of the world’s most iconic and rare American aircraft, and also some foreign aircraft, and for this reason it attracts about a million visitors each year.
However, no one has probably seen it through the birds eye view of a drone.
The video below is just fantastic. Filmed by Paul Nurkkala (NURK FPV) with DJI drones and GoPro cameras, it provides the most amazing way to explore the collection of Dayton Museum.
BTW, at 04:40 the drone hit a cable, but fortunately the incident did not harm the Cinewhoop drone, nor any aircraft.

Re: Covid19

hgflier
 

Jim, 

There have been 5,316 deaths reported so far from COVID-19, or one death per ~66k people in this country, If you have 66k contacts, then on average you would expect one of them to be dead. 

In a typical year with 30k influenza deaths, I cannot remember a year when I knew someone who died. 

But just wait, at the pace the country is going, we'll all soon know someone who died from this. (moreso in the parts of the country that failed to take this more seriously and failed to act earlier)

Re: Plans Shrinkage

Bruce Crain
 

I think Norm Howell May have over sized his cores and then sanded them down to size but that may be a rumor.  As for the ones that were to small perhaps the hot wire was to hot or was pulled along to slow. 
Just my 2 cents worth.

Is there a reference length to confirm shrinkage of appendix W-6? The previous builder's templates are all consistently larger than what is drawn. Also, if I'm off just a little (airfoils are a hair over or under size) can the core be slid up or down the tapered carbon spar until it fits correctly? 

Or, should I work on other stuff and wait for the new airfoils to be published? 😁😀😁
