Now THAT would be interesting,  A large AirWolf  Huh?

 

I forgot to mention that I plan on a counter-rotator  to keep the blades shorter then 13' and the torque manageable

 

Maybe won't scrape them on the ground, but taxing by camera could be interesting

After struggling to get the idea in my head on paper, i struggled some more to get in plastic.

 

I think I have figured it out and this is a few shots of the idea and progress.IMG_3740.jpgIMG_3741.jpgIMG_3742.jpgIMG_3744.jpgIMG_3745.jpg

Come to think of it, taxation with representation isn't so hot either.

Can we trust the government? Absolutely, just ask any native American.

Anyone who isn't confused, doesn't really understand the situation.

If women fake orgasm,what do men like to fake? relationships.

Our streets aren't safe, the food we eat, the air we breathe, the water we drink isn't safe, but our underarms have complete protection.

Extend tail 20 ft, Comrade.

Central Design Bureau Directive 3142090-1953-1A states that if look like Yak, then fly like Yak.

Jack, I'm wondering... this might be the first build that needs a tail weight!

Give me 8in of table and I'll build a B-17 on it,  Or this and my Bronco.

 Thanks on the Not too Shabby

Yes Bill, That is why I moved the cockpit aft for my FAT-@$$ed pilot I was hiring to fly this monster.

 

   Ghost of the Granville  Brothers

 

   Actually the engine is a Chinese design made from bamboo.    Strong but Light.

 

   Bill, I thought I was going to split a rib when I first read your post  :rofl:  :rofl:  :rofl:  :rofl:  :rofl:  :rofl:  :rofl:  :rofl:  :rofl:  :rofl:

Meanwhile I have a bunch of plastic grinding coming up here.

Well was able to play around with some of the pit parts and my course sanding stick 

and modify (narrow) the pit to fit in its new location.  Will have to see about the side wall

controls but there isn't much really to go in.  Have to make a MFD on the IP and a few switches

and some cameras.. Probably not going to be able to see much anyway.IMG_3765.jpgIMG_3766.jpgIMG_3767.jpgIMG_3768.jpg

Should be back to work on this Monday,  Sold off a bunch of stuff and can move around alittle more

 

I guess you could call this a BUMP  HUH?

 

Just finished a 24 hr  EGGPLANE Group Build today  Started out doing 5 T-Birds, but Hase-CRAPawa  decals will

 

take longer then 24 hrs per plane, so I switched to a Mig -15 with 5 hrs 33 minutes left and finished with 5 minutes to spare

 

Now that was FUN

Thanks Brian,

 

   Been working around the cockpit and the pilot. Put in floor and some side walls and re-positioned the throttle and mixture controls.

 

   Got things together and I'll have to move the seat back to the bulkhead to give the pilot some headroom or this will the only 

 

   open cockpit Unlimited Racer in the field.  Although I have been giving some thought to landing gear with pants like GEE-BEE's.
